Throughout the years I was pushed into writing and submitting work prematurely. As a consequence, I made the mistake of meeting targets rather than meeting my own personal standards. I have realised that my thesis is rotten to the core and riddled with many inaccuracies which were either not picked up on or not pointed out to me by my supervisors because they are not experts in the subject area I am researching. They tried their best to help me but I obtained a lot of poor advice over the years and the result is work that is not as good as what I wrote either at undergraduate or master 8767 s level. I obtained First Class Honours and a Distinction respectively but now, I feel as though I am struggling to write something that is remotely decent.

I am in the third year of my phD. But i feel like that i am not progressing as I dont get any feed back or any advice from my guide. I had to call, send msgs always to remind to reply to my msgs. I live far and need a Guide to say something step by step. But i am disappointed. I have publshed few papers on the subject. Now that prepared questionnaire to send out. Now my guide after so many mals, asking me what varieties of ststistics i would use, how many tables i would prepare independent variable and dependant variable Believe me My head will explode soon As i have no idea what so ever on all these. Just got stuck and worried
In the computers on the desk are folders named after each stream, within which are topics for thesis and final projects. There is a variety of topics to choose from. Something based on which a university might award you a degree, or a PhD, are lined up according to the alphabetical order.
The Dutch PhD Coach is run by Arjenne Louter, a teacher with 75 years’ experience assisting PhD students when faced with problems relevant to writing, literature, work-life balance, motivation, and inspiration.
Research degrees offer you the opportunity to develop and demonstrate your ability to undertake research into an area of personal or professional interest. For PhD the research must be original, . it must make a contribution to knowledge in the field. Different routes are offered in different subjects. If you are considering a research degree now or in the future, you should contact the relevant Research Coordinator in the first instance. This will help inform you of the types of research specialism that we are able to support. A list of the Research Coordinators in each academic area can be found on the how to apply web page.
Thank you so much for the advice. I 8767 ve been really struggling to complete my thesis, too often procrastinating on other (smaller) projects, but your blog has given me the inspiration I need to submit in the new year. I have a detailed, yet realistic, plan made out for myself from now until Xmas, giving me the break to tidy up the draft. etc. Will let you know how I get on!
it is very motivating that someone already finished by 8 months !
I am master student and I work fulltime , having charity activities that I can 8767 t leave
which make me so busy and can stay months with no progress
but reading this makes me inspired 🙂
The heartbreak after every failed target or deadline (#7) has led to much stress (#6), which I 8767 m still working on figuring out. All I know so far is the first step is to notice when I am avoiding my work, and then to actively choose to calm myself in a way that lets me continue work. But both parts of that are hard, because I seem to be quite clever in finding 8775 useful 8776 ways to procrastinate, and I also seem to be perpetually in denial of my stress. Also, when I do notice my stress, it 8767 s because it is so strong that it is difficult to face directly, even after attempts at calming myself. But I what you say you did for stress might help me out a lot too, especially because I keep telling myself I need to take more walks. 🙂
