unless it’s a train coming…as my friend once said…
I am pre-empting a positive outcome…as I see light at the end of the tunnel.
In the meantime, lesson of the moment is: Weird ideas can really stuff me up!!
For some reason I had it in my head that I needed to finish my research proposal before I did my confirmation of candidature. The confirmation happens in some universities, maybe not yours. And although it would be highly beneficial to have the research proposal and ethics approval ready by your confirmation, if you have the proposal ready at least, and the submission for ethics approval pending…you can possibly still have your confirmation.
The main thing is to make sure you have a good quality proposal and ethics application as this will help with the confirmation and ethics approval.
So…until next time, when I hopefully have good news to share about my confirmation….onwards and upwards with draft 56 of my research proposal. (Just kidding…probably draft 8 which isn’t toooo bad).
