I'm a PhD student and I pay full-time fees out of my own pocket. In return for this, one gets a supervisor and a desk. At least, one should. I've (briefly) lost my desk and (twice) lost a supervisor. Careless? Perhaps. To my knowledge, I still have no supervisor.
Yesterday, I was expected to attend my MPhil/PhD Transfer Viva. Everyone was there. Except me. No one thought to tell me.
At what point does this descend from farce into tragedy?
On a brighter note, I received a wonderful quote, "you wouldn't pass a first year viva, never mind the transfer".
