It's awful that you had to go to these lengths but congratulations on the outcome. And for not giving up. Well done.

Don't worry too much, this seems to be the norm. I spent 18 months in the lab earning practical experience but nothing from that will form part of my thesis. Even the reading I did moved on. I'm sure your on track.

We tend to think having funding in the first place is so great but really, given the hours work by PhD students and the fact most pay their own way during write-up it's a struggle to understand why this system continues

Thank you Caro, that sounds very reasonable, there would only be two months of my funding left anyway and the postdoc would more than make up for the end of my funding. I'll speak to my supervisor.

What do you do then, between hand in and viva if not look for alternative employment. Am I expected to work beyond funding when required but when there is no work left to just do nothing? I do not understand that.

Hi guys, can you start a postdoctoral post after your thesis hand in but before your viva when you are still being funded?

I have no understanding of why someone would spend almost 10 years of their life to do 2 phds. But I agree that the workload would make it impossible to do at the same time

Not always. Depends on the funding. My university hold the award funds for 12 months if they can't fill the position the project funding returns to the RC

Crazy. And when the individual is unable to pay back on these loans? What happens then, does the taxpayer foot the bill. How will that benefit the UK economy? The pressure on the student would be awful.

Start the PhD, it's crazy to be out of work/study while you wait for the next chance to sit the bar exam. Work it so you can take a time off to study for the exam and depending on results then decide what to do next.

Well done!!
All that hard work involved in a phd, I'm sure seems worth it now. Best of luck for the future.

Are they not free? I think employers in the US may taken them more seriously than in the UK. If it's a subject you can't learn any other way then I say go for it.

But if you also have six extra months of experiments to do wouldn't that use up any left over funds on consumables and instrument time?

Is it that you don't have the time for the second data set or that you think it's too much effort to add without it improving your thesis. I'm not sure I understand the problem properly, how long until you submit?
