Even in this very digital age, many students find some sort of visual (and often hard copy) overview of their work and commitments useful. The Project Plan (right) is an A3 week-by-week document which covers the academic year 2019/20, labelled with terms and vacations. It has rows for different types of activity, some of these pre-labelled with common categories, others left blank for your personalisation. If you want to know whether this might be a useful tool for you, we suggest downloading it and entering any remaining milestone dates – transfer, confirmation, final submission (if in doubt, check with your department), and funding deadlines, any known fieldwork or holidays, and then have a look through the Plan, take stock and see how you feel about the DPhil now. Everything ok? On top of things? If this initial exercise has made you feel anxious or concerned, it might be worth spending a little more time plotting in future commitments you know about, and reflecting on what needs to be done in the available time, and then discussing with your supervisor(s).
