Awarded a Ph.D from Nottingham University

Katya DeGiovanni was recently awarded a Ph.D in Education from the University of Nottingham, UK.

Her thesis was entitled ‘Transitions amidst transitions: the experiences of Maltese female students from compulsory education to further education and/or work’. The thesis proposed a model for use in career guidance and counselling to help students in their transition from compulsory education to further studies.

Roger Murphy, an external examiner for the University of Malta’s Faculty of Education and a consultant for the Matsec board, was her tutor.

Dr DeGiovanni, who is currently director of the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology’s Institute of Community Services, will next month take up a lecturing post at the University’s Department of Family Studies.
