    I've just finished my 3-year BA. I started in September 2013 and graduated in July 2016. I'm now going on to PhD study, which will begin in October 2016 and is intended to last for 3 years (at least, that's how much funding I have!)

    how long can a PHD go on for then?

    My PhD is in Law (social rather than practical, so I'll be going on to be an academic rather than an actual lawyer!), and they can last indefinitely, I think, so long as you can fund it! A friend of mine has been doing his PhD in Engineering part time and will graduate next year after 6 years of study.

    You don't study, you research. In particular, my research interests lie within a very under-researched area of the social sciences, so I'm not learning what's already out there, but bringing new information into the public domain. Equally, you never learn it all when society and the world doesn't go a moment without changing itself, and once something changes, however tiny it might be, there's something new to learn.

    I am about to start my second year of a law degree at the university of Sheffield. However I had a year out to retake some exams so should be going into my third year. I don't plan on doing a year abroad or in industry or anything like that so will still graduate with a lot of the people who were in my year at college/school. My first year grades weren't as strong as I would have liked and although I went out quite a bit, I am gonna tone that down a bit I reckon. I also didn't do much work after coming back from the library or at the weekends so that's something I can work on to Improve. Plus, in second term my sleeping habit never really recovered from Easter and the downturn in my grades sort of coincided with that :L

    Just finished 1st yearI am expected to finish May 2018 I started in Sept 2015*

    *I already did 1 year at a previous uni on a similar course to what I was doing. But because I hadn't done any modules in Philosophy during my 1st year, I had to start again at my new uni.

    I'm excited to go back to uni. But anxious due to how expensive it will be!
