I would contact a couple of universities that you would consider applying to do the nursing degree at. These degrees are usually funded an the NHS bursary. Lots of people do nursing and midwifery as a second undergraduate degree where I am and the fees are paid. Good luck with it.
Thanks for posting your experiences. It's interesting to hear that you all find this type of feeding back in person beneficial at least to some degree, maybe I'll try to persevere with it. It seems to be pretty common, I guess it's quicker for supervisors. I think I prefer written feedback because it means they've actually read the work. When they first discussed my draft one supervisor said to me "take us through it" - I didn't really know what they expected, should I read it out or summarise each section?? Anyway it seems this is the way things are done so I'd probably better just get used to it!
Thank you for your answer - yes this is exactly what I mean!! I find it really odd- I've never experienced this in any other area of work. I guess I need to develop a bit of enotional distance from my work and take it all a bit less seriously, I'm in defence mode now before I even get through the door!
I was just wondering if anyone else finds that their supervisory team occasionally want to critic a piece of work you've written during a supervision meeting without them having previously read it. Maybe this is common and I just am unable to take criticism but I'm finding it really difficult to deal with feedback given in this face to face way. Has anyone else experienced this and if so did you find it helpful? Do you think I should just try and adapt to it or say I prefer a more traditional approach of written feedback? My panel are aware I don't like it. Thanks
I'm sorry to hear you are having difficulty with this. Is your promoter aware that there has been a procedural irregularity with the forms? Is he unable to help? Surely when this is looked at for a firm decision by the arbiter it will be obvious that there has been a mistake in the options offered to the examiners. I hope you get a fair and speedy outcome.
I also find it a huge challenge to balance the needs of my family and the demands of my PhD so you have my sympathy. Is your PhD part time? If so perhaps you should consider whether you might be better applying for a full time bursaried PhD and reducing your working hours. You would have to start from scratch again but you could treat it as a job which might work in better with the family.
Hi Anz07, I'm so sorry this has happened, it must be so disheartening after such a prolonged wait and all that has gone before. I hope you have someone trustworthy at your university who can advise you how to best address this and get things moved on. Best wishes for a speedy resolution
I got 6 months maternity leave from my PhD with full bursary when I had my baby which I thought was pretty generous. I was also able to do some work from home whereas I think if I'd been in full time employment I might have been encouraged onto maternity leave! I hope everything works out for you and you get equally good support whenever you decide the time is right!
