I love coming across blog posts that are about the experience of doing Part Time PhDs. I have just stumbled across the ‘PhD Women’s Group’ Blog ( which looks like a great initiative by the way ) & in turn found an article that immediately caught my eye called ‘Journey of a part time PhD student’ by Liesbeth Tip. I loved the part where Liesbeth talked about overcoming her ‘irrational fear of doing statistics’ and then eventually going on to teach it ! As someone who absolutely hated statistics when doing my Masters that made me smile. Liesbeth has a lovely writing style that is informative but she keeps it real with funny anecdotes and pertinent insights into life as a part timer.
