Provisional PhD Proposal Acceptance

I am happy to share I received initial approval for my PhD proposal:

“Your confirmation has been approved subject to some minor amendments to your proposal.  You should address these points and resubmit your document”

I am now working on 2 specific items, as per the Panel Chair’s summation of the panel’s feedback, and hope to have them submitted to my supervisors by the end of the weekend for their review prior to my resubmission. As I am reading the feedback, I will only revise and expand upon what was suggested, not on every point raised by the panel — that I will save for the doctoral thesis research itself once I get the final green light!

I expect to be reaching out to a number of my doctoral student colleagues, especially those associated with our Twitter doctoral learner network, #phdchat, in the near future for some chats about my impending research.

I have a lot of people to thank for their support along the way . . .

  1. Really pleased for you, I also got my formal approval latter today (late in the process, but that’s another issue) after a clarification. Your blog and twitter feed really are helpful and I’m glad to be ‘on the journey’ with you Jeffrey!

    1. Congrats right back to you, Ian. I suppose we really are on this same road, while apart, still somewhat together! A support network makes a major difference (and will thus be something I will peak into along the way, of course!!). Look forward to hearing about your work as well.


  2. One of the things we do on #phdchat is celebrate the accomplishment or steps in the journey of our colleagues. Congrats, Jeffrey, this was an important milestone! Tony

  3. Congratulations Jeffrey. Certainly a significant milestone. And not many other people ‘get’ it which is why this network is so valuable. I expect to submit my proposal on Friday. So I’ll be sharing part of the journey with you. Bron

    1. Sending you the positive vibes for tomorrow (or are we at Friday, already?!), Bron. Look forward to hearing more about your work. I am planning to share my ideas once I get the final nod.

      All the best.
