P.S. I don't understand why some people find it so amusing making fun of everything. Even if some questions are considered stupid by you, give us the time to explain ourselves. Some of us subscribe to a forum to get advice, because we find ourselves in a dead-end or difficult situation. If some of you feel so "experienced in a field" or so superior why bother answering in the first place?
I am a person deeply interested in my field of research and I just found myself in a difficult situation.
Anyway, thanks to all the rest of you for being polite to stupid question and taking the time to answer a somewhat ....panicky PHd candidate.
Thank you all for your answers
To answer Kim Wipes ironic response I have to inform you that in my Department there are Phd students living in other cities that communicate with their supervisor via Skype and try to stay in contact several times throughtout the year. There are no obligatory teaching hours assigned to us, there are several offers to teach but this isn;t mandatory. There are no courses we have to follow so the Phd mostly depends on our personal effort and the communication with our supervisor. We receive no funding whatsoever for the duration of our studies, only if look on our own for financials sources outside the university.
Maybe my question was a little unorthodox. Maybe I should rephrase it or elaborate a little bit and ask a different question. Let's take things from the top: I started on a Phd which looked interesting and I did manage to get through with the theoretical part. Now I m busy with the research part of the Phd and I realise that I need to enhance my studies and acquire more knowledge on the subject, one which cannot be offered from my Department. I realise I am totally on my own regarding the practical research part. I think it exceeds my supervisor's background knowledge. He might have the best intentions but I think at this point he can offer me limited help.
I found several tempting Phd abroad and if there are funding opportunities then they present a far better option.
My dilemma is that on the on hand I do not want to throw away the work I have already done, on the other hand I feel that Ι am in deadlock.
Of course It would be foolish not to tell my supervisor I understand that now.
So, let me ask this: Is there an alternative to a Phd that I could do abroad and enhance my knowledge while continuing with my Phd, so it will give me the time to think if it's worth continuing with my current Phd?
Dear Blog members,
I am currently working on my Phd in my home country but I am mostly looking for a Phd in the Uk and this are my questions: Can I do 2 Phd's ? If so, can I tell my prospective supervisor that I am already doing a Phd?
I have no prior experience regarding Phd's in the Uk.
I would greatly appreciate if somebody would help me out.
Thank you again in advance
