Hi,

I can't help you with your problem as I am still in year one - sorry.

But I can sooo identify with your worry!! I did interviews for my MA dissertation and it was painful re-reading the transcripts!! - the amount of times I said um, asked double questions, had to restate what I meant or ended a question with "or?"!!

I'm glad my supervisor didn't ask to see them! I think interviewing well is a skill that can take a while to acquire - as long as you can identify what parts were good/bad - at least you can learn from them.

Sorry I can't be more helpful - Good luck!!

Hi, sorry to be a pain, but if you have a spare moment and don't mind searching for this article for me I would be really grateful! I don't have access through pubmed or SAGE :(

Thanks you guys!!!

Your comments have been really helpful - I can aim for 12,000ish for now.

At least I'll have something to build onto and amend at a later time :-)

Just got to get on with it now!!!!

Hi, I am currently 6 months into my first year and hoping to draft a rough literature review over the next few months. I know that each thesis is different, but I was just wondering approximately what length they should/could be in an 80,000 word social science thesis.

Obviously it will need re-drafting in my final year - it would just be handy with my planning if I had an idea of the sort of length I'm aiming for.

Thanks

Hi,

Could it be a retrospective analysis that you are doing?

Hi,

I applied for two different PhDs.

One was a PhD area put forward by a university that suited my experience. For this I had to write a statement and fill in an online application. I was later called for an interview. The funding was from the uni itself and it was advertised as a funded PhD on www.jobs.ac.uk.

For the other one (at a different uni) I had to contact a potential supervisor with my proposal ideas. Once they agreed to supervise me, if I was successful, I sent them my proposal, which they helped me edit. Then I submitted the proposal and the online application form to the uni. I also filled in a research council application form for funding through that uni.
The uni accepted my proposal and gave me a provisional place for the next academic year. I then had to wait for the research council meetings to occur before I knew if I had funding for the place.

I bazaarly got offered both PhD places funded!!! I couldn't have been more surprised!! After an agonising week decision making I accepted the former offer. I then just politely declined the place at the other uni, both formally and personally to the potential supervisor explaining my reasoning.


Hope this helps and good luck :-)

Hi,

What about www.jobs.ac.uk
You can search for academic jobs and studentship opportunities - it's where I got the details to apply for my PhD.

If not you will probably just have to search for specific information you require individually.
