** When did you decide to study doctoral studies? He gave you or someone you know stimulus already in the first year in college, that you would like to try? **
I decided to chance. I studied physiotherapy at the Physical Education and Sport, which was rather a practical field. In my thesis I worked at the Institute of Physiology Academy of Sciences in Krc, where I opened up new possibilities to study neurophysiology and there I met people that I admired. I wanted to learn something more about my field and from an entirely different perspective. Entertained me and English and reading scientific articles. In doctoral studies, I saw mostly the opportunity to work on themselves and perhaps delay the daily routine of going to work.
** What specifically did you have as part of their doctoral studies do? **
Brand new for me was working in the lab, critical reading and writing scientific texts. I also had to conduct several practical exercises on the high school.
** How much time did doctoral studies focused? **
I study full time vytěžovalo. First of all, from the beginning I was in the lab late into the late evening hours and weekends, I often spent reading professional articles, writing conference papers or practical training exercises.
** A graduate student comes to money? You also need to pursue another job, or you allow complete scholarship? **
With the money could go to, even if the mortgage or living the high life it was. During my studies I tried to work as a physiotherapist, but rather than due to the practice due to earn some money. First, I managed a few hours a week, and later I worked two days a week. It should be added, however, that it was not entirely easy, especially in terms of my time and energy. Probably I also extend the length of postgraduate study.
** You should have the opportunity to travel during the study? **
Yes, I traveled to several international conferences and three international internship in Budapest and Berlin.
** And what They brought the internship experience? **
First of all, I learned to cope with stressful situations. In addition, I also brought a greater perspective, and I met interesting people. I traveled a lot during university studies, ie before the postgraduate course, so a lot of situations for me was not entirely new. Work abroad, however, since in our department too different.
** I told you that you have over other graduates in the field of doctoral study completed with a competitive advantage? You feel it somehow? You need a better job offers? **
My doctoral studies has yielded many benefits, at least in terms of job offers. Some disappointment for me came at the moment, when I found his name written Ph.D., but Pr.D. After this comic accident, I realized how few people Ph.D. knows. Doctoral studies but it taught me more about things to think, be able to find important information, not to make premature conclusions and, finally, I met many interesting and capable people.
** Are there any downsides? **
The downside is the length of the above studies. Finish the study in 24 years is a lot different than the finish in 29th Doctoral studies can to some extent, shifts the onset of the everyday reality.
** Do you think the doctoral level, Everyone finish cooking college? Or needed some „special features“? **
I think one needs mainly ignition and interest. And above all you need to have a very good reason to have a Ph.D. Such reasons could include the requirements of the employer.
