    Inadequate Supervision! Need Help! 

    Hi guys! I am pursuing my PhD in management and my research is based on novice entrepreneurs.
    Initially, I was highly passionate about my research, but now I am loosing interest in it. The reason being
    that I’m experiencing inadequate support from my supervisors. During the past one year, my supervisor
    has been changed for the third time. The first one got retired, the second one has migrated to some
    European university and the third one is unfortunately hard – to – catch. He was assigned to me two
    months back and I have hardly seen him once, that too at the time of introduction. It was a short
    introduction of merely 5 – 10 mins. I am constantly trying to reach him through emails, phone calls and
    even Whatsapp. But, he never reverts back. I am getting demotivated day by day. I have started to think of
    dropping my PhD. What do I do? Please help! I am unable to decide.

      Hi. In my opinion, you should not drop your PhD due to the negligence from the university’s part. In fact, if your advisor doesn’t turn up, you can always report it to the authorities. The board of graduate studies of every university has the power to look into the matter like why he is not responding to you.Unless there are some issues which cannot be resolved by you and your advisor yourself, then they have to help you out. I mean, they have changed your supervisors because it’s the university’s responsibility to make the assistance available to you. Go through your university’s website or your head of faculty. I’m sure you will figure out how to deal with your supervisor rather giving up on your PhD.

      I do not deny the fact that you are in dire need of research supervision but when things just don’t go the way it should be, you should get your own ways. One of the students like you shared his/her instance of bad supervision in this blog post. https://thesiswhisperer.com/2014/08/27/when-good-supervisors-go-bad/ .Go through it as well as the comments along. There are plenty of advice; perhaps a single one can work in your case.

      Don’t lose hope, because this is not the end. You may face even more difficulties in your life in future. Infact, this is just a beginning. In my opinion, try out help from online tutor. http://www.dissertationtutors.co.uk, you can take consultation from them. They provide the best PhD assistance right from research proposal to the conclusion. Go through their website, I’m confident that you’ll figure out a way to deal with your research instead of giving up on your PhD.

      This behaviour towards your research at this stage is natural. Since you are not getting the right guidance from your university and especially from your guide. I would support your idea of discontinuing your research. And focus on something else, or change your topic selection and opt for different guide. I know it may sound negative, but i guess this is the only option left with you. Anyway, I wish you all the luck and best wishes.
