I'm about half-way through a humanities PhD. I'm writing a theoretical monograph.
1. I want to start publishing but am struggling to work out how: my research builds through my chapters (meaning their individual full value only becomes clear at the end) and does not include any novel empirical research (although it refers to the studies of others). I also haven't yet reached my final conclusion, so can't even use this.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? What did you do?
2. I'm aware of how long it takes to get anything published (or even hear that an article isn't going to be published). Did others work on multiple papers to up the odds? Or just focus on one and wait for an answer?
3. I have an MA dissertation which got a very good grade, based on long-form interviews. This was 2+ years ago now though so I'm presuming this data is out of date if I wanted to convert it into a new paper?
I'd be grateful for advice: my situation is a little unique so I don't really have contacts in real-life to ask.
Hi. I'm looking to apply for a (humanities) PhD at a Swiss uni. I'm a British national but will be living in German as a full-time resident (exact nature of this residency stil tbd). Does anyone know if there are residency requirements for undertaking a PhD, or is it more whether you can be sufficiently present to be successful?
Thanks. No-I worked during my year abroad. The Uni website says 1000-1200 hours on a German course but then later stipulates you need to have also passed one of the listed exams. I really don’t want to have the expense and stress of taking extra exams if I can avoid it.
My first degree was in Modern Languages, specialising in German. I gained a First (Oxbridge).
I now am looking to apply for a PhD in Germany, writing in German. The language requirements stated on the website describe attending and passing various language courses but nothing about previous university study.
Does anyone know if my German degree will exempt me from needing to attend one of these courses / sit these language exams?
