  • Rachel - For me, studying the PhD, I'm hoping that it's going to open some doors to my career,

  • or that certainly it won't close any. I think that in terms of the employer and your future

  • career, it's not just about the subject area of your PhD, but the skills you're going to

  • learn along the way - being able to carry out your own research, get results, analyse

  • them and the critical assessment of it, that kind of thing. They're all the valuable skills

  • that will take you further, progress you further, rather than just the fact, 'I've got a PhD in this.'

  • Darel - I know where you're coming from, Rachel; I don't know entirely where

  • my career path is going to go, what I'm going to do after my PhD, but I'd like to think

  • in the first six months. Amy - It may be that your career path is influenced by the three

  • years! All - Yeah! Amy - Certainly in my PhD, hopefully there will be opportunities within the NHS, within

  • academia or even, within the pharmaceutical industry which is something that wouldn't be possible without

  • this higher research degree.
