Are you thinking of doing a PhD, but can’t decide?
Whether it’s to achieve something significant, become an expert in your area or discover something new, studying for a PhD is a highly rewarding experience. However, it’s also a decision you have to take very seriously as it involves a commitment to at least three years of study and completion of a thesis
It may be necessary to submit a research proposal to a supervisor in a university department in which you wish to study or you may find a specific research project advertised as a studentship with funding attached.
