It's a bit of a long shot but I am very curious with this. I am hoping to study PhD however not sure if I would like to do it full or part time. What kind of attendance was required when you studied it? Was it so you had to be in university every day, or would only need to come in for few hours each week for a lecture and do rest of the work at home? Could you let me know, also what field and if it was full or part time? I don't know anyone else to ask since I don't know anyone who has PhD.
Hello, I have my masters degree research dissertation on friday and I am really stressing out. I am doing distance learning course so it will be done over Skype with my suppervirsor and another lecturer. What kind of questions should I get ready for? When I did my bachelours dissertation I was only asked 3 questions but I have a feeling it will not be as easy as that.
I have been emailing head of school as well. I am still waiting for reading list from semester 2 - 2015 as well as 2 other emails. I noticed everyone from staff at my university are very good at ignoring emails. (Apart from finance team ofcourse). No matter what my email is about it gets ignored. In the past I would also email directly to administration team and they would forward my email to relevant person who would only ignore it again.
I have an issue with my master’s dissertation. I was supposed to complete it for May, however when I submitted my proposal on 24 Feb I had no reply about confirmation of it until I emailed my tutor multiple times and she only responded on 20 Mar. So because she took nearly a month to approve it I have missed the change to hand it in May to be graduated in July.
I have emailed my tutor with questions regarding dissertation on 19 April and heard nothing back, I emailed her asking for an answer again on 19 May and still nothing. It is really hard because she is also the module leader so I can’t email anyone else about this.
So not only did I miss may deadline and now need to hand it in August but I don’t know what’s going on exactly and also don’t get replies to my emails regarding the dissertation.
What would you suggest I do because clearly emails are out of the question and I am getting really frustrated. Because it’s a distance learning course I can’t go to university to see her.
There is no marking criteria. The only resources I have been given was 50 pages document, which mostly speak about what fonts and spacing I should be using and referencing, but nothing else.
My previous degree dissertation was project based, where now its research and I am really finding it hard.
So I am at the stage where my dissertation proposal got approved and now I need to start writing. Does any of you have any good advice on how to make sure I get good marks? I need to get at least 70% from this. When I did my degree I got 68% in dissertation two years ago. However I do feel because I am a distant learner and doing my degree online mostly my tutors (especially my dissertation tutor) are not taking me seriously and most of the time my emails with any questions get ignored. This makes everything so much harder. I do have till August to get my dissertation done.
