Had not finnished phd in time


User: fatma - 11 May 2012 13:40

This is a friend's problem as he was doing his phd but he hadn't completed it , he's gone through it very well and was about to finnish it , but he was working at the same time and unfortunately they sent him a dismissal letter , this was about two years ago , does anyone have an idea if he could complete it in another university or if there would be any phd but he hadn't completed it , he's gone through it very well and was about to finnish it , but he was working at the same time and unfortunately they sent him a dismissal letter , this was about two years ago , does anyone have an idea if he could complete it in another university or if there would be any solution?

I am pretty sure there is a way of him going back to his course. Someone I know did that before at a university in Britain.

You did't explain why he was dismissed, or perhaps I misunderstood. Many candidates work full time, so that wouldn't be grounds for dismissal, and you said he was doing "very well" in his program. Did he stop registering every semester, or did he stop communicating with his advisor?

He was dismissed because he was too late to submit it was his seventh year.

Well, he should probably schedule an appointment with the provost to find out the procedures and paperwork involved in appealing the dismissal, if that's a possibility at this point in time. At my uni, it's possible to make an appeal in cases where the student or immediate family member was seriously ill, or some catastrophic problem occured. I don't know about completing it at another university. I imagine the previous dismissal won't look good on his application, and it may be difficult to get good recommendations from professors because of it. But if it's something he really wants, he can probably find a solution. Good luck!
