I’ve received and read a lot of advice on what is important when doing a PhD since I’m here at Nottingham University, which is why I’ve compiled it into a list to maybe help you in case you’re struggling with your PhD (if you don’t know what a PhD is, here’s a good explanation).
Some of it is conflicting with one another, and the most important thing to remember is probably that every PhD is unique, so not all of the advice on it applies to everyone.
It’s not ordered in any way, at most it is grouped – but most importantly, some advice is missing, and this is why I’ve put it up here to discuss about it – I’d really appreciate your feedback and thoughts about how to extend this list!
Here’s the link to the document: the (probably never complete) list of PhD advice I’ve received
Let me hear your opinion!
