Tips for potential PhDs

I’m away celebrating my Dad’s 85th birthday this weekend, so not much time for blogging. However, since my link to R’s ‘why you shouldn’t do a PhD’ remains a popular post here, I thought I should also link to a couple of posts by my friend and newly minted head of English at Anglia Ruskin University, Farah Mendlesohn’s posts on getting a PhD place and finishing a thesis. Farah’s not coming from a hard science background so some things are different (eg. in the sciences you usually do not choose your thesis subject but get given something to work on by your supervisor) but there is much that is transferrable across the disciplines here.

PhD students, PhD supervisors, and those looking for a PhD place can learn a lot form these posts.
