I don't know in your case but I thought I would just add: I actually ended up with a PhD in a different subject to what I thought I was studying for!

I don't think it is particularly beneficial NOT to have a job while doing the corrections. I worked during writing up and doing corrections (and have three small children). Yes, it was hard sometimes but it also kept me focussed. If the job you had was too stressful then maybe look for something easy for these next few months. Good luck!

Hello everyone. I now have my PhD but for various reasons I did not publish at all while I was studying and am trying to remedy that now. I also want to apply for a conference next year. My question is - can I write an article, submit it for publication and present the same thing at a conference? I have no idea if this is normal or completely verboten! Thanks for setting me straight.

You could just proofread it yourself if you don't have time to send it to her? Like others have said, you can correct anything else afterwards anyway.

I agree with the others - it sounds like they are trying to help you, albeit in a roundabout way! I was given several months to do my corrections when really I only needed a week. They told me that they were giving me longer as knowing that I had young children and a job to do, they didn't want me to feel pressurised. Congratulations - you have passed! I bet the corrections won't be as onerous as you fear and, when they are done, you can put this behind you.

How have you ended up as a distance student when you don't want to be one?? Is there a Facebook PhD student page for your uni - maybe that could help you make some contacts and get some answers. I was a distance learning student but I was given a lot of attention when I started - this is when they should be bending over backwards to show you how you can contribute to your department even if you are not physically there. I would be very worried.

Honestly? If you really can't get an extension they you don't need to be on here asking whether you have to time to get it done, you HAVE to get it done! Just do the best you can and hope there are no howlers. You can polish off any typos after the viva. Good luck!

Just to update - this was actually a mistake and the University reissued my certificate with the correct wording (without mentioning DL or PT!)

As the others have said, it's not really a problem. I didn't notice that one table changed from landscape to portrait in my thesis which made it really small and almost impossible to read! I just fixed it along with the other corrections.

I have now finished, graduated and even went to the ceremony (which I can highly recommend!) The next stage is to publish some articles (as I didn't publish anything while studying). There are lots of books about publishing academic articles but I wonder whether anyone has any recommendations?

I remember your post! Hard as it is, I don't think you can help. It is going to ruin your relationship and you need to distance yourself from it (not her). Is she depressed, do you think? Does she enjoy the research? I went through a long period of procrastination and doubt myself so I can understand that it is sometimes very difficult to "just get on with it". If she can't motivate herself though, she really needs some outside help to do this which I don't think you are in a position to give her. I was also studying from a distance and what really helped me was to meet up with other students/researchers to get feedback - it made me feel like I was actually a "proper" student. Would this be an option?

I'm going! I don't know anybody there apart from my supervisor as I was never on campus but I think I would regret not going - should be fun!

My advice would be to make it as big as possible! I looked at the maximum size allowed and decided it was too big and made mine smaller - everyone else used the maximum size so mine looked tiny!
