Seeing lots of PhD students starting out on their journey, as well as plenty in the middle, and some towards the end. Twitter was a wonderful tool for moral support, so I thought I'd put together a few thoughts about the process, for the @phdforum, #phdchat and #phdweekend folk.
1. The most important one right at the start. Look after yourselves. You are doing a PhD, but it shouldn't define who you are. I made the mistake of becoming consumed by it, and it took its toll on my health. Be engaged and committed, but remember to live your life too.
2. Forge a good relationship with your supervisors early on, and make sure you know what they expect from you, and what you should expect from them. Will your meetings be weekly/monthly? Will they read your work regularly? Agree on the working relationship early on.
