Thread: Kicked off PhD

I agree with the others here - I've never heard of anyone being asked to leave at this stage, rather than being given a chance to improve. Is your uni aware of your dyslexia? If not then it sounds like an important thing for them to know.

It sounds like you need to clarify this with the university, as it's not clear from the two paragraphs what their decision will be. I would make it really clear to them that you're quitting for health reasons, and it may be worth seeing if there is any advice available through student services before you do this.

Quote From TreeofLife:
International students often have clauses that they have repay the stipend if they don't get a PhD.


Ah, I'd not heard of anyone having to do that.

Hi Iwan, I think the outright 'fail' rate is something like 1 or 2%, assuming you submit your thesis. Of course, there is a range of other things that can happen, including various types of corrections, resubmission or the award of an MPhil instead of a PhD - it's worth looking on your uni website to see which types of outcome they use. But assuming you pass the various stages along the way (like the one you have just passed - well done) and manage to write and submit your thesis, failing should not be something you expect. I don't think it is normal to repay a stipend either.

Just a casual enquiry really - anyone know how long it takes for your thesis to appear in the searchable database Ethos, or your university's thesis database? I haven't put any restrictions on mine and would rather it was visible than not, but I can't find any of the theses from my department listed anywhere, even going back to people who graduated when I was in the early stages of my PhD, so I'm starting to think my university doesn't play ball with this stuff!

The quants side of my work was a bit of a mixed bag - couple of significant things and some non-significant. The non-significant stuff was quite useful in terms of generating suggested tweaks to the models I was testing and further research ideas, and to be honest, it was hardly mentioned in the viva.

I also agree with the above.

Quote From Tudor_Queen:
Ps. If you did add them, you would have to invite them to be further involved... they'd have to contribute to the poster and the paper as an author (or at least check it over to say they were happy with it - which would seem odd given that it is your work/they're not the supervisor).


This isn't odd in my experience - all authors get the chance to see the poster/paper and to contribute comments before it goes out. I did this as a student.

I agree that you should be first/corresponding author in this case and that the student should also be an author. Agree that research is teamwork and I never really understand why people leave students out (assuming they've made a meaningful contribution), as publication is going to be vital to the student if he/she wishes to progress.

I wrote a short summary of my responses to the corrections, and included a table with the corrections listed in one column, and the changes/page numbers in another column. Sounds pretty similar to your approach. I think as long as you make it clear what you've changed and where to find it, you should be ok.

There can be a few advertised throughout the year. I got mine in June and started end of Sept. www.jobs.ac.uk is worth tracking as they generally appear on there when they're advertised.

I would advise you to run it past the BPS (or someone who knows about BPS eligibility, maybe the prospective PhD supervisor), if you are intending to register as a chartered psychologist after doing the PhD (most Psychology academics are chartered psychologists). I think if you will be able to use it to become chartered then it should be fine, but I would want to clarify that first.

If anyone has the energy to enter into this decades-old debate with pm133, you're a better person than I am.

As someone who has worked with groups of people who are socially excluded for reasons including mental health issues and learning disabilities, I believe it's very important to challenge incidences like the inappropriate use of 'retarded'. The language we use about vulnerable groups does affect their perception and treatment in society, and I am glad Jane92 reflected on this after posting.
