    PhD

    Anyone done one or in the process?

    Ive stumbled on something and I have 2 days (inbetween work and family commitments) to write a PhD research proposal and submit it.

    Any help would be appreciated as its quite a tight deadline. Advice on a literature review would be especially helpful.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    What are you planning on getting it in? The literature review for the humanities would be quite different from a hard science. Is it going to be a lab based thesis, or a literature analysis/research project?

    Most of the world has a different system for PhD than the US, but I am familiar with the process - I am planning one for myself fairly soon. In the US, you take courses for 1-2 years, after which you take a cumulative examination. During those 1-2 years, you develop your proposal and after examinations, you go and start your research.

    In Europe, I know you don't have the course requirement and you start your thesis from the beginning.

    It is humanities based.

    Quite simply there are no taught courses. 3 years of research and then the thesis followed by an oral exam.

    If the topic is approved and if I decide to do it then it is straight into the research.

    'Advice on a lit review' is pretty general. What do you need help with? Ever done one?
