Thread: Working as a British Council Language Assistant during the writing up year

Hi everyone,

I’m now in my final year of PHD funding and am thinking practically about my options for my fourth year, when I will be writing up and will no longer have a stipend. I’m doing a PhD in Spanish and was thinking about taking partner in the British Council’s English Language Assistant program - it pays quite well for around 12-16 hours of work per week. It would be a chance to work and earn enough money to live, but still have time to write up the PhD. I would also have time to think about writing post doc applications, etc.

I was wondering if anyone else had done this? Or if any of you spot a huge, glaring hole in this plan, haha.



Thread: Turning a chapter into the whole thesis (whilst half-way through PhD?)

Hi everyone!

I'm a second-year PhD student in the UK. I'm funded for three years in total.

My question is more or less what I've said in the title - I'm in the process of redrafting the first chapter of my PhD and I'm starting to think that it would actually make a good thesis in and of itself!

I've had good feedback on what I've already written so far, with the main criticism levelled at introducing my source material more thoroughly. I'm doing that right now and the introductory material to my work (I'm working on some shrines in early modern Spain) is long enough for a chapter of its own.

My question would be thus: has this happened to any of you before - turning material from one chapter into the entire thesis? And has it happened at this stage of the thesis (almost halfway through)? Any advice? Thanks. :)
