Managing a PhD Project

In this presentation, Mr. Chong will share his experience as a recently graduated part-time PhD student of the University of York, U.K. He will reflect on his five-year journey of studying a PhD by looking at how he came up with a research design, the first meeting with his supervisor, how to balance work and part-time study, how to manage relationship with his supervisor, how to prepare for the viva, and sitting for the viva. This presentation intends to, hopefully, help you better prepare for a PhD in terms of survival matters.
