Quote From jojo:
Hi lovelies,
I’m back again. Can’t believe its been five years since completing my phd. You can all do it! Believe me! Superhard, but yes you can. I couldn’t have made it without being part of this forum. I have since joined academia and I am now at senior lecturer level.

Quote From jojo:
I have come back here to look for support from academics, especially female academics, mature students and those writing up. We can encourage one another by cheering each other on, holding each other accountable and sharing the wisdom we’ve gathered along the way. Lets do this!


Hi All,

Jojo started and ended this feed with a positive message, lets try and keep the comments on here positive and supportive please!

Thanks very much,
Abi

Quote From Chemikalie89:
I used to think the same. BUT you there are too many variables involved:
1) I don't want to take a 2 years master. I'm already 26 years old, so I don't stay in university till my 30s (I would for a PhD, it's a full time job);
2) I speak english, french and german. But English is the only foreign language I'm fluent in. Ok, I could go to Germany (which, IMHO, has a better degrees) BUT I don't really want to struggle everyday with the language. At least not while I'm studying (and yes, I have already experienced that);
3) Your unis are well-considered all over the world. Even if it's not oxbridge.

Italian BSc gives you a solid background. For sure I'm not ready for a PhD, at least I don't feel like that (!), but I had the chance to compare with UK students at the end of their MChem and I feel my background is stronger. But that's just my opinion.


Hi Chemikalie89,

I noticed you had thought about studying in Germany but was concerned about not being fluent in the language. There are some masters courses in Germany that are actually taught in English! This week is our 'Study in Germany' social takeover. Pop over to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FindAMasters/ and send us a message and the experts from DAAD will be able to help you with any questions you may have about studying in Germany.

All the best,
Abi
