I'm in the position that I have a unique upcoming opportunity that I like to pursue. Currently, I'm in my 3rd year (first 2 months), I have written up my thesis and it has got given feedback from my supervisors. The thing is I want to finish the PhD (ASAP) before I start the next stage. Do you think it's wise to do so? Have you heard any stories?
I don't have an interest going in into academia as a career.
I'm in the Computer Science niche (if that helps)?
I'm on funded PhD with monthly installments, these installments are pre-scheduled every January. I'm in my 3rd year and planning to submit in the next two months. My viva will be probably next 3 months. Assuming everything is finished 3 before the actual last date, do I still get those funding in the remaining months?
The funding is a sponsorship from the university.
Has anyone experienced this?
I'm a bit confused about the thesis requirements. Generally, I see 80,000 but a lot of them claim to for Humanities but STEM course to roughly around 35,000 - 45,000 words?
Is there anyone here who submitted a thesis with this word limit?
I'm doing a Computer Science PhD, my thesis is roughly 43,000 words and 135 pages.
Wow, a 400-page thesis? I understand the feeling you're going through. Since you nearly to the end, it's best to repair the corrections as soon as possible. I'm not surprised you're burnt out after a 400 page.
Congratulations on succeeding in your PhD. I do sometimes think if I made the right decision for PhD.
Take a day off and then starting going through the errors.
I also agree with your statement about marking. It's defintely subjective based on staff. It's quite rare to have a good set of staff for a research project.
Of course not. If you like to do a PhD then go for it. I'm pretty sure you're not the first person to do a PhD with that background.
You have more chances of doing a PhD in a STEM field without a master's. I'm not sure about humanities fields though.
It's tougher to get a PhD position without a master's but it's not possible.
I suggest you contact the university you wish to enroll in for the entry requirements.
