I am embarking on my doctoral thesis which is seeking to understand the motivations of British Bangladeshi/Bangladeshi female students that pursue postgraduate research (PGR)/doctoral study, and what perceptions or factors influenced this decision. I also intend to explore how this experience is implicated by students’ race, ethnicity as well as other intersectional parts of their identity. In gauging this, and the potential barriers that inhibit a fulfilling experience and ultimately success, the research will also explore how other Bangladeshi female students can be encouraged and supported into pursuing an academic route.
