Just to think I thought I was too old at 41 to apply for a PHD.

Have you thought about contacting the University or the Israeli Tourism Agency? They will have the relevant information you need.

I don't know as a proof reader I stayed at the persons house as they were super stressed about her final thesis. I got fed and watered, no money as she was my friend. Ps I told her to have the physical copy and the computer copy ready.

You will be okay, I use to travel 75 miles each way 3 times a week. My heaviest teaching day was Monday 3 blocks of 2 hours. The other 2 2 hours lectures, but I spent those day covering the assignments and further reading. Just remember to bring food and teabags, milk and buy only hot water (10-20p) otherwise I think my tea addiction would be £20 a week.

Have you talked to them? Medical Education is extremely vast, you could be concentrating on specific medical data, but the the underlying methodology/technology (software) could be applied to any subject. Ps how hard is to apply to study in Sweden?

My conclusion was 1-2 pages, project failed and this is why. As my mentor told me as long as justify why the project failed you will be okay. Still came out with 65%, could have been higher if I didn't get banned from using the Uni computers (no papers access) for failing to pay my fees (2 months before i had access again) and lived 75 miles away or didn't submit a review to my main mentor once. So don't worry I screwed up big time, so you should be okay. If a walking disaster like me can crawl over the line, I expect you to fly over the line (p.s my thesis was 10k words)

As someone who had to make a compliant about the PHD student teacher (didn't have a choice student rep) and a former teacher, you have to make sure you know what the subject course you are teaching (not matter you can wing that) make sure you you have a structure, ie not work through problems verbatim. Remember to break up the lesson to Q&A gives you time to breath and breaks the boredom of writing on the board whilst the students youtube for most boring lesson, no point teaching if the students don't understand anything. Also use HUMOUR, the more relax you are the more relax the students are. PS teaching isn't a science it is an art.

Good luck bignige, I hope you get it. I was reading this post as I am in the same position, how could I contribute to PHD when no research exists in the area I want. BTW read up on the sci-hub hub, it made me more frustrated to try and find an area in research to fit my solution.

Arthemesus, I urge you to listen to Pju. I was fortunate enough to have a close friend who asked how I would kill myself, I told lampost, car and her reply was "but you have a nice car." Made me laugh and distract me. Please seek support, it's not worth worth it.

I used Zotero for my bib, as every article online or PDF was downloaded and linked.

Abiart, I feel your pain I was suspended from University for 1 month before I was to finish my final modules (exams) for non payment (funding was delayed). Try doing a presentation for your final project without a University log in. You best bet is to explain this to the course co-ordinator and if you have a transcript show them, I was fortunate as I explained my situation to the Course Leader and Module Leader, they explained I would only be penalised for 1 module and not my final module. All I can say is talk to them, you won't be the first or last.

You have to ask yourself what did you wrong? But the key question is "was that Masters right for me?" There are plenty of Masters which might be similar to the one you chose, that maybe a better fit. You need to sit down with the Course Co-ordinator (Department Leader) talk to them and ask serious questions regarding the course. Didn't you get interviewed and talk to the course leader?

Good luck and make the best wishes for the future, chances are if they don't find any new evidence in 7-12 months they will give you a formal caution.
