I was forced to quit my PhD by both my supervisors


This all happened to me 5 months ago and since then I have done some temping jobs to keep money coming in, but now I’m a bit stuck as to what to do next.

I’m looking for both jobs and PhDs. I’ve found one PhD that I’m interested in, but it’s self-funded which is a bit of a shame. However, I really like the subject and before I’m even thinking of applying I’m doing some of my own research on it.

Effectively I’ve taken a break since this happened and my self-confidence has started to come back now. I spent some time with family and although I’m constantly worrying about what I’m going to do next, I feel much more confident than I did a few months back. And my situation doesn’t seem so bad now.
