The world of PhD research can be a bit of a bubble; it can seem as if everybody around you either has a PhD already or is also working towards one. This can make having a PhD seem commonplace and it is easy to forget that only a small percentage of the population ever attempts a PhD, never mind completes one. Often, before people start their PhD, they have preconceived ideas about what it is going to be like. Some people need a PhD for their chosen future career, some see it as a delaying tactic before they have to worry about applying for jobs, and others see it as three years of hard work and long hours.
