Work outside the university
For students who are financing their doctorate with part-time professional activity outside the university, combining the thesis with a job also demands a lot of organisation and a great deal of personal discipline.
It is advisable as far as possible to :
- establish a rigorous schedule and stick to it ;
- plan days devoted solely to thesis work ;
- ensure that you maintain as many links as possible with the institute at which your thesis supervisor is based ;
- negotiate a certain degree of flexibility with your employer so that you can take part in colloquiums and attend conferences in your field.
