ok, but just be careful as it makes some people feel uncomfortable, and this is suposed to be
'a Forum that is here to help current, future and previous postgraduate students to exchange ideas, get advice and generally help each other out'
we are also aware of the number of posts that ask for advice that no one can really give an answer to. So if you can't offer constructive advice, ignore the post.
If a post annoys you why waste time replying, especially if it's not helpfull to the original poster.
Whilst this is obviously still a "sensible" suggestion, it's not quite what we were after...
There have been a few posts about the improvements you would like to see on the Forum. We're now listening. PMs and an edit function will be introduced soon. Anything else? Keep it sensible please!
Now now, lets try not to name call. just because one of you isn't being that friendly doesn't mean all of you should join in!!
Why don't you have a look at this page on our site:
Hope this helps,
I am doing a sign language course at a College in Shefffield, it runs 1 evening a week for 2 hours. I costs around £200-£300.
Year one Level one take 1 academic year (sept-June) to complete. Level 2 takes two years and after that you can be employed as a translater for deaf children in classrooms! Level 3 takes 3 years and is the final stage. After that you can do an interpriters course.
So it is entierly seperate from any course you have done before. You need no qualifications to take part! Hope this helps! PGFT
We are not trying to keep you quiet just trying to keep the forum a freindly place for everyone. put your self in other people's shoes when writing a reply if you where them would you be offended or upset or feel uncomfortable?
If you are unsure there is a Rules tab located at the top of the screen which you can all look at to give you an idea of what not to write!
Many thanks for your co-operation in this matter.

Hi there CC,
The section 'PhD Life' is designed for PhD students up to and after they have completed thier course.
Regards Postgraduate Forum Team
I am afraid it is not possible to include off topics because post grad forum is reserved for post graduate topics.
Sorry for any inconvenience
We weren't aware that a chat room had been discussed since you registered in June this year. I wonder - are you in disguise?
We did have plans to add a chatroom to PosgradForum. We decided that keeping discussions in a public forum rather than a private chat room was more inclusive. I'm afraid that this means we won't be adding a chat room facility in the near future.
Thank you everyone for your replies. I reluctantly told my supervisor on recommendation of a lot of you. He was great about it and said it would not in any way alter his opinion of my abilities to complete a PhD. However, he does want to report it to the health and safety officer in the building just so that more people are aware but won't unless I give him permission. To this, I have not replied, I will think about it.
Why do I not want to tell anyone? Because I don't want special treatment, I just want to be a PhD student. I am a toughie usually and this has been a sore point for 2 years, that everyone first asks me about my head before anything else. I know they mean well but it is just not in my personality to be felt sorry for or whine. However, I know that despite me feeling like I am invincible, I am not and there may be a time I need help.
Thanks again everyone, see you on the forum ;)
We're looking for stories of people who found funding by unusual means. Perhaps through a speculative letter to a company, through an obscure grant awarded once every 7 years to students born on a Tuesday, etc.
