Sorry for the long silence. I had more of less given up on this blog thinking that no one was reading it, but apparently some people still do.
So, I submitted my thesis on the 5th of August, and immediately started working at the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand (after a short holiday in Tonga).
My oral defence took place on 20 November and I passed with minor revisions.
I’m working on the revisions at the moment and hope to have them done by the end of the year!
Once they are approved and the thesis has been printed, bound, and submitted to the Victoria University of Wellington institutional repository, I will then have fulfilled all the requirements for my PhD and you may call me “Dr. Nicole”.
It’s kind of amazing looking back and thinking that I actually did it.
Here’s a picture of me handing in my thesis before examination.
YAY! I did it!
