How to maximize and adjust to a phd schedule.
A PhD schedule takes adjustment, but the strategies that work for doctoral studies carry throughout an academic career.
Adjusting to a PhD schedule can be a challenge. Classes will take up a decent amount of your time for the first few years of a program. After completing the required courses, independent research becomes the main focus. Sometimes that can be intimidating. You become your own boss, which is an adjustment from being told what to do and when to do it.
Here are a few tips from current doctoral students and professors at Wharton on how to transition into this new lifestyle:
Brush Up on Your Time Management Skills
Learning how to manage your time more effectively can help you get your schedule under control as well as stay on task and reduce stress. Prof. Wayne Guay , the doctoral coordinator for the Accounting program, said, “Effective time management is crucial to success, progress and sanity. First, students should know they are not alone, as it is something that many — perhaps most — graduate students struggle with from time to time.”

Ask for Help
Completing a PhD is not an easy task. There will be times when you’re struggling and may be feel unsure or overwhelmed. Prof. Fernando Ferreira , the doctoral coordinator for the Business Economics and Public Policy and Real Estate programs, suggested that students reach out for help. He said, “It’s always much better to talk people. Share the experience that’s happening and share the problem, usually that’s the best way to overcome that struggle. It’s much easier once you’re able to communicate what exactly is happening.”
Professors are there to guide you when you need, so take advantage of their expertise. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to a professor, talk to a peer. There’s a chance that others have experienced similar issues and can lend some helpful advice. Prof. Ferreira also suggested seeking help sooner rather than later as putting off a problem can cause further issues down the line.
Take a Break
From going to class, completing homework, and conducting research, your days can be jam-packed. Although it is important to focus on your work, it is also important to take time for yourself. Karren Knowlton , a third year Management student, said, “It’s super easy to feel like school is your life, but you won’t be able to bring your best self here if you don’t round yourself out in other ways. I would say maybe two nights a week try to see other people and do something outside of school even if it’s just for an hour.”
Whether grabbing dinner with a friend or joining on a club on campus, there is plenty to do in and around Philadelphia. Karren chooses to spend her free time volunteering with the Science Education Academy in West Philly. Karren said, “ It’s a fun and rewarding way to give something back to the local community that’s easy to work into a PhD student schedule.”
Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
Not comparing yourself to others is easier said than done. It’s important to remember a PhD program is not one size fits all. What works for one person may not necessarily work for you. Prof. Deborah Small , the doctoral coordinator for the Marketing program, said, “Of course it’s impossible to not compare yourself to others, but there’s not one right way to become an academic other than getting that degree.”
Comparing yourself to others can cause you to lose sight of the goal you’re working towards. Focus on what you personally need to do to be successful. Karren said, “Figure out what your priorities are and don’t let looking at other people and how much they seem to be working or not working affect that.”
Having tips to adjust to a PhD schedule is only helpful if you know what to expect. Get an inside look at the schedule of a PhD student .

How to Prepare a PhD Research Plan/Schedule?
PhD research plan is a structured schedule for completing different objectives and milestones during a given timeframe. Scholars are usually unaware of it. Let us find out how to prepare it.
Between March 2021 to 2022, I read almost 15 different research proposals from students (for their projects) and only a single one, I found, with a comprehensive research plan for 3 years. Which is still not, kind of practical, probably copied from other students.
Such entities are not known to over 90% of students, if some know that because their university asked for but unfortunately, this basic procedure lacks penetration among students. I don’t know the exact reason, but students lack a basic understanding of the research process.
Meaning, that they don’t know or perhaps don’t complete their course work needly. PhD research requires many documents, SOPs and write-ups, before even starting it. For example, a rough research plan, research proposal, initial interview, competence screening, grant proposal and so on.
However, the requirement varies among universities and thus knowledge regarding basic procedures often also varies among students. So I’m not blaming students but certainly, it is the fault of the university side, as well.
When you come up with a research proposal with a research schedule or entire plant, certainly it will create a positive image and good reputation. So it is important. But how to prepare it?
Hey, there I’m Dr Tushar, a PhD tutor and coach. In this article, we will understand how we can prepare a structured plan for the PhD research and how to execute it.
So let’s get started.
How to prepare a PhD research plan/schedule?
A PhD research plan or schedule can be prepared using the GANTT chart which includes a month, semester or year-wise planning of the entire PhD research work.
First, enlist goals and objectives.
It’s not about your research objective enlisted in your proposal. I’m talking about the objectives of your PhD. Take a look at some of the objectives.
Note that these are all the objectives that should be completed during the PhD, but not limited to a specific subject. Note you have to show how you can complete or achieve each objective during the entire tenure of your work.
And that is what the plan/schedule is all about. Next, explain the time duration. The time required to complete each goal, roughly. For example, a semester or a year to complete the course work or 4 to 8 months for completion of ethical approval.
Now two things must be known to you, at this point in time.
- First, enlist the time required to complete each objective, as aforementioned.
- Second, what goals would you complete during each semester?
For instance, course work takes a semester to complete, but during the period a scholar can also craft their PhD research title, research proposal, ethical approval and grant proposals.
Now it is also crucial to know that there is no time bound to complete goals, but it should be completed as you explained. Let’s say you can plant it for 3 years, 4 or even 5 years depending on the weightage of your work.
In summary, the answer to the question of how to prepare a research plan is,
- Enlist your goals or objectives.
- Decide the time required to complete each goal.
- Prepare a GANTT chart.
Now you have prepared zero-date planning for your research but how to present it? The answer is a GANTT chart.
GANTT chart for PhD research plan:
GANTT chart is a task manager and graphical presentation of how and how many tasks are completed or should be completed against a given time duration. Take a look at the image below.
How can you prepare one?
Open MS Excel (on Windows) or numbers (on Mac).
Enlist goals or objectives in a column.
Enlist years (duration of PhD) in a row and bifurcate them into individual semesters. You can also prepare a month-wise plan, that’s totally up to you. In my opinion, semester-wise planning is good because research is a lengthy and time-consuming process. So monthly planning would not work.
To make a chart more attractive and readable use colors, as I used. Now mark a ‘cell’ against a column and row showing the objective which you are going to complete in a semester. Take a look.
After the end of this, your GANTT chart would look like this.
You can prepare a month-wise planning, individual semester-wise planning and goal-wise planning etc. I will explain these things in upcoming articles on 5 different types of GANTT charts for PhD.
Custom writing services:
If you find difficulties in preparing a research plan, synopsis, proposal or GANTT chart. We can work on behalf of you. Our costume services are,
- Synopsis writing
- Project writing
- Research proposal writing
- Research planning and GANTT chart preparation.
You can contact us at [email protected] or [email protected] to get more information.
Planning and executing a research schedule are two different things. Oftentimes, students just prepare as per the requirements and then do work as per their convenience. Then they are stuck in one place and just work around the time.
Plan things. Make your own GANTT chart, put it on your work table or stick it on a wall so that you can see it daily. Try to achieve each goal in time. Trust me things will work and you will complete your PhD before anyone else.

Planning your PhD research: A 3-year PhD timeline example
Planning out a PhD trajectory can be overwhelming. Example PhD timelines can make the task easier and inspire. The following PhD timeline example describes the process and milestones of completing a PhD within 3 years.
Elements to include in a 3-year PhD timeline
The example scenario: completing a phd in 3 years, example: planning year 1 of a 3-year phd, example: planning year 2 of a 3-year phd, example: planning year 3 of a 3-year phd, example of a 3 year phd gantt chart timeline, final reflection.
Every successful PhD project begins with a proper plan. Even if there is a high chance that not everything will work out as planned. Having a well-established timeline will keep your work on track.
What to include in a 3-year PhD timeline depends on the unique characteristics of a PhD project, specific university requirements, agreements with the supervisor/s and the PhD student’s career ambitions.
For instance, some PhD students write a monograph while others complete a PhD based on several journal publications. Both monographs and cumulative dissertations have advantages and disadvantages , and not all universities allow both formats. The thesis type influences the PhD timeline.
Furthermore, PhD students ideally engage in several different activities throughout a PhD trajectory, which link to their career objectives. Regardless of whether they want to pursue a career within or outside of academia. PhD students should create an all-round profile to increase their future chances in the labour market. Think, for example, of activities such as organising a seminar, engaging in public outreach or showcasing leadership in a small grant application.
The most common elements included in a 3-year PhD timeline are the following:
- Data collection (fieldwork, experiments, etc.)
- Data analysis
- Writing of different chapters, or a plan for journal publication
- Additional activities
The whole process is described in more detail in my post on how to develop an awesome PhD timeline step-by-step .
Many (starting) PhD students look for examples of how to plan a PhD in 3 years. Therefore, let’s look at an example scenario of a fictional PhD student. Let’s call her Maria.
Maria is doing a PhD in Social Sciences at a university where it is customary to write a cumulative dissertation, meaning a PhD thesis based on journal publications. Maria’s university regulations require her to write four articles as part of her PhD. In order to graduate, one article has to be published in an international peer-reviewed journal. The other three have to be submitted.
Furthermore, Maria’s cumulative dissertation needs an introduction and conclusion chapter which frame the four individual journal articles, which form the thesis chapters.
In order to complete her PhD programme, Maria also needs to complete coursework and earn 15 credits, or ECTS in her case.
Maria likes the idea of doing a postdoc after her graduation. However, she is aware that the academic job market is tough and therefore wants to keep her options open. She could, for instance, imagine to work for a community or non-profit organisation. Therefore, she wants to place emphasis on collaborating with a community organisation during her PhD.

Most PhD students start their first year with a rough idea, but not a well-worked out plan and timeline. Therefore, they usually begin with working on a more elaborate research proposal in the first months of their PhD. This is also the case for our example PhD student Maria.
- Months 1-4: Maria works on a detailed research proposal, defines her research methodology and breaks down her thesis into concrete tasks.
- Month 5 : Maria follows a short intensive course in academic writing to improve her writing skills.
- Months 5-10: Maria works on her first journal paper, which is based on an extensive literature review of her research topic. At the end of Month 10, she submits the manuscript. At the same time, she follows a course connected to her research topic.
- Months 11-12: Maria does her data collection.
Maria completed her first round of data collection according to plan, and starts the second year of her PhD with a lot of material. In her second year, she will focus on turning this data into two journal articles.
- Months 1-2: Maria works on her data analysis.
- Months 3-7: Maria works on her second journal paper.
- Month 7: Maria attends her first conference, and presents the results of her literature-review paper.
- Month 8: Maria received ‘major revisions’ on her first manuscript submission, and implements the changes in Month 8 before resubmitting her first journal paper for publication.
- Month 9: Maria follows a course on research valorisation to learn strategies to increase the societal impact of her thesis.
- Months 9-12: Maria works on her third journal paper. She uses the same data that she collected for the previous paper, which is why she is able to complete the third manuscript a bit faster than the previous one.
Time flies, and Maria finds herself in the last year of her PhD. There is still a lot of work to be done, but she sticks to the plan and does her best to complete her PhD.
- Month 1: Maria starts a second round of data collection, this time in collaboration with a community organisation. Together, they develop and host several focus groups with Maria’s target audience.
- Month 2: Maria starts to analyse the material of the focus group and develops the argumentation for her fourth journal paper.
- Month 3: Maria presents the results of her second journal paper at an international conference. Furthermore, she helps out her supervisor with a grant application. They apply for funding to run a small project that is thematically connected to her PhD.
- Months 4-9: Maria writes her fourth and final journal article that is required for her PhD.
- Month 10: Maria writes her thesis introduction .
- Month 11: Maria works on her thesis conclusion.
- Month 12 : Maria works on the final edits and proof-reading of her thesis before submitting it.
Combining the 3-year planning for our example PhD student Maria, it results in the following PhD timeline:
Creating these PhD timelines, also called Gantt charts, is easy. You can find instructions and templates here.
Completing a PhD in 3 years is not an easy task. The example of our fictional PhD student Maria shows how packed her timeline is, and how little time there is for things to go wrong.
In fact, in real life, many PhD students spend four years full-time to complete a PhD based on four papers, instead of three. Some extend their studies even longer.
Furthermore, plan in some time for thesis editing, which is a legitimate practice and can bring your writing to the next level. Finding a reputable thesis editor can be challenging, so make sure you make an informed choice.
Finishing a PhD in 3 years is not impossible, but it surely is not easy. So be kind to yourself if things don’t work out entirely as planned, and make use of all the help you can get.

Tiger Woods to play in 2024 Genesis Invitational: How to watch, tee times and more
The Genesis Invitational will mark another return for Tiger Woods. This time, it's his PGA Tour season debut.
The 15-time major winner will play at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, this weekend starting Thursday. When he participated in last year's tournament , it was his first full PGA Tour event since 2020. He has never won at the Los Angeles-based competition , which is hosted by his TGR Foundation.
In December, he played in the Hero World Challenge, which he also hosts, and finished 18th. He also appeared at the 2023 Masters in April. During a third-round hiatus, he withdrew due to lingering pain from plantar fasciitis in his foot. Woods had ankle surgery that month and reported in November that his ankle was fine , but other parts of his leg were experiencing pain from adjusting to the fusion procedure.
Last month, Woods left his longtime partnership with Nike and on Tuesday, he announced his Sun Day Red brand in partnership with TaylorMade Golf.
This year, the Genesis Invitational will have a 36-hole cut when the field of 70 is slimmed down to 50. Scottie Scheffler, Viktor Hovland, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and Max Homa will also be participating.

2024 Genesis Invitational live stream, watch online, TV schedule, channel, tee times, golf coverage, radio
The cat is back alongside some of the best players in the world this week in los angeles.
All eyes have fallen on Riviera Country Club this week as Tiger Woods makes his first start on the PGA Tour since the 2023 Masters. The 2024 Genesis Invitational serves as the grounds for Woods' return yet again; he similarly played in last year's tournament after an extended layoff, finishing in the top 50.
The 48-year-old is not alone, however, as the Genesis Invitational marks the third signature event of the season and the first to feature a cut at the 36-hole mark. Woods, the tournament host, is joined in the field by world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who is fresh off nearly pulling off a three-peat at the WM Phoenix Open. Scheffler is searching for his first PGA Tour win since the 2023 Players Championship while hoping hoping to stop an extended stretch of longshot winners on the PGA Tour.
Rory McIlroy has the same idea in mind after a disappointing showing at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Max Homa and Sahith Theegala make up the California contingent with solid history at Riviera who are ready to roll in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth look to keep the momentum rolling after playing themselves into contention at the WM Phoenix Open.
This field of 70 will be trimmed down to the top 50 players and those within 10 strokes of the lead at the halfway point. While it may not look like a substantial cut, it will only add to the Friday drama and lead into a great weekend featuring some of the best players in the world.
