5 Things To Think About Before Starting a PhD

What do you need to know before you start a PhD? Professor James Arvanitakis talks us through five important things to think about before you decide to embark on your PhD journey.

1. The first thing to do is find something you are really interested in researching, because you are going to be doing this for the next three years of your life.

2. Next, you'll need to find the right supervisors to support you in your PhD - their guidance and support is crucial to your success.

3. Thirdly, what is your long term plan and where do you want your PhD to take you in the future. Are you doing this for the right reasons?

4. The fourth thing is to consider the journey - this might be more important than the end point of finishing your thesis. What do you want to achieve along the way?

5. Finally, you need to work out if you are really prepared for the time and effort it will take to complete your PhD. Finishing your research degree will not be an easy process and you need to be ready for the challenge.

Professor James Arvanitakis is the Dean of the Graduate Research School at Western Sydney University.

The Truth About PhD Unemployment Data

Watch this video to learn the how PhD unemployment data is skewed by not including postdoc positions (i.e. postdoc training positions) and underemployed PhDs who are getting paid half of what they're worth.

You'll also see how few PhDs are actually in high-paying industry positions versus the exponential number of those currently pursuing postdocs.

The good news is that your PhD IS valuable. But not in academia. You can leverage your PhD in industry and be paid what your worth and do meaningful work. Here, we will tell you what the average STEM PhD salary is in industry and how you can be one of these top earners.

Advice to A Young PhD Me

The last of the end-of-grad school videos. These are just some of the things I had to learn in grad school, some things I wish I could go back and talk with myself about when I was just starting out. It would have helped her a lot, I think, and I hope some of these things can help you too. I'm not claiming that I have all the answers, but maybe one or two of these things will be helpful to you.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: DO NOT FILM AND DRIVE. I shouldn't have to say this, but it's real dumb! For the timelapse shots I used a mount on the far side of my dashboard so that my small camera was not blocking my field of vision (I even looked up the CA laws for where I could place it!) and also I couldn't reach it so I was forced to park somewhere safely to start it, end it, or change settings. Be smart, people! Also I shouldn't have to say this either, but wear your seatbelt! I was not wearing it in parked shots but I wear it EVERY SINGLE TIME while driving and you should too! No drive is too short! Always always always wear your seatbelt.

Each video is a new view into life as a grad student, and the rollercoaster that is getting a PhD. But now I have my PhD. I'm not a grad student anymore! On to new adventures...

Why you shouldn't apply for a PhD

Get 10% off Squarespace by following this link:

Over the years this channel has inspired a lot of people to think about doing PhDs. It's time to change that.

Of course, this title is a touch hyperbolic, but it's also an accurate (albeit negative) summary of the video. There are lots of reasons to not do a PhD, and doing one is really, really hard. Do not apply for a PhD if you want to earn lots of money, or want an easy continuation of university, or a cushy job, or even if you want to call yourself a professor one day. The only reason you should apply for a PhD is because you love doing something specific academically, and want to do that all day for three years. It's that simple.

Something which didn't come across too well in the final edit is that the point of the PhD then isn't to become an academic, or do anything for that matter, other than what you are passionate about. When you finish your thesis and submit your research to the wider world, your contract with society is up - having returned on their investment - and you decide what you're going to do next.

Lots of people decide to stay in academia because at the end of the PhD they still value doing the thing that they love more than they value lots of money or an easy life. Being an academic allows them to continue with what they're passionate about. But plenty of people leave academia after graduation because their priorities change over the course of the project, or discover something new that they're passionate about. My PhD afforded me opportunities to pursue my video making interest, and got me to the point where it was feasible for me to pursue it full time - which I did after graduation, because I valued doing that more than anything else. I'm one of a vast number of PhD exits, because there is no one 'right' thing to use a PhD for!

Are PhDs Overqualified? Is A PhD easy? Things To Think About When Getting A Doctorate

Are PhDs overqualified? No, but you have to consider other people’s perception of what you are doing in your doctorate. Here is what you have to think about - the material that you study is a specialist degree so you are studying things that other people might not consider.

1. You often know the same things as other people without a doctorate, but know some of the nuances of the problems.

2. You understand how the knowledge was acquired, and so you might have questions that other people might not ask.

3. Few people are going to understand what effort it takes to acquire that knowledge, and what it means to do research on topics.

Is doing a PhD easy? No.

A doctorate is not easy because it is not the knowledge that is difficult, but the behavioral aspects of acquiring knowledge or doing the work. You have to work everyday at something in which no one knows the answer.

It is a sustained effort over a lot time, and a lot of things change during your life when you do a PhD

Are you overqualified? No - you know a lot, but it is about positioning in the marketplace. Think about how others will find your skills useful and market the value that you possess.

David Maslach is a research professor of entrepreneurship, innovation, and business strategy, I discuss topics, such as behavioral science, strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and apply these to my new peer proofreading and editing platform. Topics include the sharing economy, altruism, investing in technology, starting a business, and bounded rationality. My favorite videos pertain to incentives, goal setting, and learning from failure to drive behaviors such as weight loss, stopping telemarketers, creating novel technologies, and creating new movements.

Peer proofreading and editing platform

A new platform where you can earn credits by editing other people's documents. Use these credits to have your own work edited. If you do a good enough job, you can convert these credits to money.

The goal of the platform is to get people to 'pay it forward' and help other people out by creating incentives for people to give back.

3 Things Holding PhDs Back From Getting Hired

Watch this video to learn how uploading too many resumes can blacklist you and keep you from getting hired.

Only 5-8% of PhD-level jobs are filled through uploading resumes to online job portals. Most PhDs think that they simply need to upload more resumes to get hired. This is not the case and is often what prevents PhDs from being hired.

Many PhDs are also not sure about working in industry and this attitude is the kiss of death when it comes to interviewing for industry positions (watch the video to learn what questions employers will ask to gauge your committment level).

Finally, too many PhDs depend on their advisor, PI, or thesis committee's connections to get hired, only to realize that these lifetime academics do NOT have any connections outside of academia. Here, we review how to rely on yourself for your job search and what the 4 key transition points are for transitioning into an industry job.

How to get a PhD in 5 easy steps (UK)

Ok so maybe the steps aren't that easy, but they are what you need to do to get a PhD!

1. Get a degree in a relevant subject. Most people also study a masters.
2. Find a supervisor and project (and funding...)
3. You must perform original research (easier said than done)
4. Write a thesis
5. Defend your thesis in a viva

A week as a PhD student:

Obviously this is all very hand wavy and approximate as I'm trying to cover all kinds of subjects, but these are the approximate steps that every PhD student goes through. Also some of the steps are someone more complex than others, with step 3 basically being the entire degree! If you'd like to learn more about my PhD then please check out videos on my channel where I talk about it in great detail, and if you have further questions about the process of applying for a PhD ask in the comments (though remember I am NOT an expert at this).

I also apologise if I got stuff wrong about humanities PhDs - my understanding is based on talking to a few friends and so is not comprehensive. I was trying my best as a mere scientist guys!

5 Mistakes PhD Candidates Make!

Professor James Arvanitakis talks to us about 5 common mistakes that PhD candidates make during their study.

1. PhDs waste too much time in their first year of study.
2. PhDs forget about important administration matters.
3. PhDs don't start planning for their future careers.
4. PhDs cancel meetings with their supervisors.
5. PhDs don't take good notes during their time with supervisors.

Do you agree with these points? What mistakes do you think research students make? Let us know in the comments below!

Professor James Arvanitakis is the Dean of the Graduate Research School. For more information about studying a research degree at Western Sydney University, visit our website:

5 Things Phd Students Should Do Early in their PhD

In this video Tahir Yaqub explain five things which a PhD student should do early in their Phd. If you have recently started a PhD or thinking to start a PhD degree in any discipline this video is useful for you. I (Tahir Yaqub) did my PhD in 2008 from University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. I got many scholarships throughout my career. I make videos about PhD students , about LaTeX document preparation system, about technology tools for students and teachers.
The video explains the importance of having a research diary, Why students should build a file of all the references and citations of the papers they read during their PhD.
It is also explained in this video that how to find the top researchers in your field of research. Also how to find not only the top journals in your field but also the journals where you could be able to publish your research work. The video also explains how to find a good journal for publishing the research. The journals have a metric called Impact factor and students should know how to take advantage of this Impact factor and select a journal which might accept their papers. The video suggests that the impact factor range of 0.2 to 5 is good to target journals during your PhD.
This video also explains how to make a bibtex or bib file for the references of research papers you use. Also how to add entries into a BibTex file after downloading from the research paper databases.

My PhD Dissertation Journey

I did it! PhDone! PhinisheD! I'm a doctor! I have finally completed my Doctorate in Neuroscience. Graduate school over these last six years has been a wonderful, frustrating, gratifying, arduous experience. A few short months ago, I started writing my PhD dissertation, which marked the end of that experience. This video serves as an inside look to my thesis writing process, as well as a time capsule of this moment in my life. I hope you enjoy it.

Things About A PhD In Business Nobody Talks About

You noticed on this channel I'm pretty open about Academia and being a business professor. there are many different things that people never talk about when they do their PHD in business. I want to talk about a few of these things in this video.

You will never be the same person once you do your PhD. You will look at the world completely different compared to what you did prior to doing your PhD.

A PhD is a difficult and often painful journey in which few people make it to what is considered the pinnacle of success in the field. As a corollary, this means that many people drop out for various reasons.

People are motivated to do their own PhD for all sorts of reasons beyond your own point of view.

The stress and demands of doing a doctorate does not disappear as you progress and achieve more success in the field. It actually gets worse.

That discovery of a new idea takes years and when you achieve that discovery it happens in a matter of seconds.

Academia is based on a system of reciprocity and social norms. Without this reciprocity, the entire system collapses.

VIDEO DESCRIPTION:
In this video Dr Tahir Yaqub explains some misconception about PhD thesis and how you can prove that your thesis has significant original contribution to knowledge. The video discusses is there a set length for a PhD thesis, how to format a thesis, the importance of doing a literature review when you start your PhD. There must be two important outcomes of the literature review you do. First you should be able to determine a tiny area or field of research where no one is doing the research. You should also understand what other scientists and researchers are doing. In order to understand Significant Original Contribution to Knowledge (SOCK), one must understand:
1 What is a contribution
2. How would you prove that it is original &
3. When it will become significant
Once you understand what is PhD, how PhD works, it will be easier for you to do PhD.
