This research explored students’ perceptions and expectations of their graduate programs. Thirteen students participated and four themes were identified. Collectively, these four themes identify with the transition of becoming graduate students and subsequently newly qualified practitioners in a profession to which they desire to feel they belong, can shape, will sustain engagement with, and can overcome challenges within. The findings highlight the importance of the students’ voices as a foundation for preparing future practitioners.
