    I'm just thinking is it possible to combine last term (research one) with working full-time? My second semester is going to end in April, so I could start looking for a job from May. Maybe I'm gonna find a company, which will be interested in participating in my research dissertation?

    From experience, I wouldn't advise it unless you absolutely have to.*

    It depends upon the size of your dissertation and topic. The writing up can really be a killer and it will be difficulty to invest more hours to complete it if you are working full-time. A compromise would be to work for an hour or two each evening, more at weekends, and then book some annual leave around the submission date.
