  I started my Master of Aviation study in 2015, after completing a Bachelor
  of Aviation (Air Transport Pilot) and Graduate Diploma in Aviation (Flight
  Instruction). I chose Massey’s Master of Aviation degree as I wanted to
  further my knowledge in the wider aviation industry, particularly in airport
  and airline management. The degree’s structure enabled me to study
  these topics in depth.
  With the wide variety of interests and specialties of the lecturers and
  supervisors, the degree gave me the opportunity to conduct research into
  a range of aviation topics. I found the lecturers to be especially supportive
  throughout my study. They always made themselves available to address
  my questions and guide me in the right direction.
  I am currently a Graduate Flight Instructor at the School of Aviation where
  I can apply what I’ve learnt from the Master of Aviation degree in my
  instruction to students.

          Your initial research proposal needs to include sufficient information for
          your prospective supervisor to be able to assess your current knowledge
          around your research topic. It will also be used by the School of Aviation
          to gauge whether there is a current staff member within the School who is
          able to supervise your research.
          Students are enrolled provisionally in the first year of PhD study, during
          which time your research proposal is developed. You are then confirmed
          into the doctoral degree.

          You cannot enrol directly into a doctoral programme – you need to apply
          to the Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) for admission. If you’re a
