Survival Guide of the last week before PhD Submission
Time to fix last minute edits- Formatting a thesis is so incredibly frustrating, and there is some formatting that cannot be done until the very last minute as everything continually changes. Set time aside to anticipate those final formatting issues
Some ‘mindful minutes’- submitting a PhD is a big deal and a weird experience. It is something not a lot of people know first hand. There are so many emotions that can arise during the last week before submission, give yourself some time to acknowledge and reflect on these
Distractions- Even in the last week you cannot dedicate hours on end to your thesis- watch some TV, work on your other roles (if you are like me and have 3 jobs haha!), go for a walk- take time apart from your PhD.
Time in your supervisor’s calendar- Supervisors are busy people, we all know this- but you will need them in your last week, try to get some time in their calendar.
Champagne- Hit that submit button, and pop those bubbles.
