Please would you help me? If you have, please send a temporary link to my mailbox.
I am also glad that PsychologicalDr is also a self-funded student who can answer H94’s question. I am sorry that I did not know the situation in UK.
H94 said that he would like to study full-time but registered as a part-time PhD. If he wants to complete PhD within 3 years and would like more supervision, does the status of being part-time affect his chances of completing PhD within 3 years or receiving more supervision?
Another uncertainty is whether the faculty/department wants to accept part-time PhD students. The department usually wants full-time students because the department usually wants PhD student to perform teaching duty(grading students' exam papers, conducting tutorial and invigilating exam) and research duty (doing literature review/collecting data to publish papers).
I was a student ambassador in MPhil/PhD information for more than five times. In Hong Kong, the faculty members clearly reject part-time students.
(Thanks for clarifying. I did not know that UK accepts every self-funded student . I had Hong Kong's perspective. Perhaps I am a bit out of topic.)
I am about to graduate with a PhD. I knew at a very early stage that I should not get married if I want to get a PhD. We are not allowed to have maternal leave and wedding leave without the permission from the supervisors in terms and conditions of studentship/funding.
I think that if you want to reduce the time constraints, you should ask the relatives to help to take care of kids during your school life.
At the initial stage of my research, I did many experiments wrongly. I asked all people for help because I did not know how to perform experiments. I did everything I could to perform correct experiments.
I talked to my family members and close friends who care about my mental health. I took one or two hours off every day to do my favourite things. I focused on improving on the quality of experiments, rather than getting a PhD. The reason is that at the end of the day it is the quality that determines whether one can get a PhD.
I passed thesis defence with minor corrections in PhD today. I have not looked for a job because my supervisor always suggested the possibility of failing the defence. I have published two third-tier papers. One paper is submitted to top journal and one paper is submitted to third-tier journal. My hobby is to study actuarial materials and therefore I almost get Associateship in Society of Actuaries.
I am very tired because there are corrections after corrections. What would you do if you were me?
You may ask yourself simple questions first:
1)Do you like research?
2)Have you done research with any professor?
3)Do you have a research goal in mind?
4)Are you confident that you will persist to do research even after 10/100 experiment failures?
If your answers are yes, it is clear to try. If not, think about it twice.
