Thread: Looking for others who are working/parenting while studying

Hi all,

I have just recently started my PhD part time and I was hopeful there would be other people who are working full time while studying, and also possibly parenting! I work full time in the drug development field, my PhD is on DNA aptamers as therapeutics, my child is 7 and we have a puppy, you know, might as well go the whole hog!! Obviously finding it all a bit overwhelming, but once I have more of a plan, I think it will be fine, fingers crossed!

Anyone else working in a similar field / have a whole heap of commitments?

A bit of background ... I have a degree in Food, Nutrition and Health Science and a Masters in Clinical Nutrition. I currently work in molecular biology after 2 years in the biophysical lab in the same company. My new boss has offered to pay for training or further education for me. At the moment I work with a novel technology as a replacement for antibodies, and the research I am doing, I think, would be a good topic for a PhD as its all new information I am gathering. Is there a way for me to use my work at work as a PhD? Would a uni let me do my work here and still give me a qualification for it?
