Please help!


Hi there

Can't seem to find an answer anywhere for this.... How does a graduate research assistant do his/her own phd aswel?
If you are working on a project for someone, then surely you can't do your phd on that same topic.....or is it a case that you choose a side tangent of the main project and do your phd on that?



It is of course possible. I worked in a research centre and myself and many others were RA/RFs also doing their PhDs on same or relevant topics. In fact in many of our cases it was actually a requirement.


Thanks very much brit27! And did you do a full time or part time PhD? Was it difficult trying to find time to do your own work as well as the work for the research centre, or did they overlap somewhat?


I was thinking the same topic as well! *high five to invogue*
