Out of interest... what holiday time do lecturers get? Is it set days or do they get the whole summer plus Christmas/Easter off? What’s it like? Thanks!

Hi all, I applied for a PhD 5 weeks ago and still not heard anything. I’ve chased it twice and they’ve said it can take up to 8-12 weeks. Just wondering, is the fact it’s taking a while a good sign?! If it was rubbish surely I would have had an unsuccessful by now? Obviously anxiously waiting! Thank you :)

Hello,

I am just writing a PhD proposal. I am looking into gender identity and wanted to know if anyone has any ideas on a sampling method I could use? I don't know how I would access participants for this research and how to justify this.

Thank you in advance.

I have a MSc and BA Hons in Business and Marketing and I have always liked the idea of teaching. However I would like to teach Linguistics and Language at University. I have identified a subject which crosses over (i.e. linguistics/language within advertising practices). I have been told by a lecturer I know that it doesn't matter what PhD I get, just go for one in Linguistics and I will be able to teach it! I wanted to know what people's thoughts are on this?

1) Will a PhD in Linguistics be sufficient to teach the subject? i.e. does the subject knowledge come from the literature review enough to teach it.
2) Will it be a big stretch for me to do a PhD in this subject?
3) Will it disadvantage me applying for jobs if I have a MSc and BA Hons in a separate subject?
4) Would it better to continue with my marketing background and do a PhD in this/continue to teach this area? I do like consumer behaviour so could find a PhD subject there.

Thank you in advance!
