More and more, Universities and technology are opening opportunities to learn flexibly and remotely. What does this mean for you as a PhD student?
Can PhD students successfully make progress and complete their study remotely (i.e. be interstate/international/regionally-based from their University)? Can the learning experience be rich and rewarding?
I'm currently a postdoctoral research fellow with the Centre for Research Excellence in Aphasia Recovery and Rehabilitation, La Trobe University, and I say YES to these questions!
But I'd follow up with a proviso that it does depend on your research field and you need to navigate the terrain!
People say PhD research can be isolating in the first place, so why choose to be remote?
