Informative Website For College Students
A select group of students complete their PhDs in two years, while a tiny number of elite students can get it done in 12 months. It’s hard to overstate how rare and impressive this is, but it is always a possibility. The key to a fast-track PhD is building up a strong academic CV before you even start.
You are still pretty young as far as PhD students go. Most students typically start around 22 and are awarded their degree when they are around 27-28. If you start at 25 and finish at 30-32 you’re at basically the same age as other students. First of all, there is no such thing as “too old” to get a PhD.
You’re certainly not too old to start graduate study and have a very productive career. As far as applying for those kind of grants is concerned, it is an advantage to have finished your PhD later.
Your age shouldn’t make too much of a difference. It is very unlikely… that you will have any difficulty finding a job, especially as a PhD. There is a worldwide shortage of top-class engineers and PhDs are expected to be senior. Plus you will have the advantage that all your knowledge will be fresh and up-to-date.
If you are deep enough into a system of knowledge to want this—and have completed your own course of therapy—you can learn the basics of the ethics and practice of therapy in much less time than a PhD, and your 50 years of life experience will make you good at it. If you have the aptitude.
