Thanks guys. I now am a Master of Science and a Master of Philosophy. What a horrendous thing to be. May the next 18 months fly by so I can be Dr E :lol: :mrgreen:

You're doing your entire PhD in 18 months?!

It'll be a follow on from his masters years - it's quite common over here, a friend of mine took the same course from a Nuclear Physics masters straight into the PhD.

I did a BSc, then an MSc. My PhD is three years long. I'm 18 months into this but officially it is an MPhil until you complete the upgrade exam. It's a box to tick before you can proceed to PhD viva.

Nice one mate! Does this mean you can officially save me when I inevitably have a heart attack at Fratton Park?

I'd say it's a race between us to see who has one first. If you can do the same PhD as me then it'd be appreciated. Having each others backs etc.

This just in, teaching is strawberry floating hard ass work. Especially when you teach something you didn't actually prepare for because they just threw you in. :slol:

Went into the office today at 2.30, and only because I was hungry and didn't have food at home. The lab is totally deserted. Academia. :lol: :wub:

Doing a PhD is often crushingly stressful, but the days where your sole objective is 'buy a sandwich' kind of make up for it. :toot:
