Thank you. My confidence is shattered right now and would really benefit from positive feedback and positive relationship with my supervisor right now. I have told her about my internal and external nominations but I won't be surprised if she ignores them.

Thanks a lot for being so supportive. I know i need to stay as diplomatic as possible and try not to get in a conflict with anyone over PhD. I started even to think about transferring my PhD to another University. I know it is extreme but as I said I am desperate to finish it. I would love to send my thesis to someone in the field for opinion but who would read 250 pages for free?

@ Iman @ Ash79 Thanks guys! What if you do not get on with your supervisor and are thinking of submitting without his/her approval? What chance do you have then to nominate internal and external examiners? Who do you go to with nominations if you can't go to your supervisor?

@human can I have your opinion please? 5 years into PhD my supervisor tells me that I need at least a year more to submit. She has never said anything positive about my thesis, she s constantly 'concerned' and has no faith in me. At the same time she is from a very different field and maybe that s the reason why she keeps postponing all the deadlines-she does not know whether the thesis is good or bad substance wise. I still did not get comments on first full draft. The comments I have concern trivia and sometimes even rewriting things she made me write. I do not have time for a never ending story. My attempt to change a supervisor last year was unsuccessful as the 'independent' director of doctoral students told me off for childish attitude and said my supervisor was simply great. I didn't know they were friends....I need to submit to move on...I have lost hope that she will ever be pleased enough with it to let me submit it. I would love to have some reassurance from somebody in my department but I fear that I won't be granted any confidentiality.

Hello there those who bravely submitted without supervisor's approval!
I m just thinking about submitting without my supervisor's approval. I know some of you have done it. Do I risk not having a chance to nominate my external supervisor? Do I risk internal supervisor taking revenge on me for acting against my supervisor's suggestions? After all internal examiner will be a colleague or maybe even a friend of my supervisor. As far as I understand internal supervisor is chosen by my faculty isn't he/she?
