      As a PhD student I have sole responsibility for my project, I’m in charge of keeping things on track – so it’s quite a responsibility to have. PhD students aren’t alone though, I have a supervisory team that are a great resource to help me develop my ideas and provide expertise. Also, working in a research group is a great opportunity as your colleagues are working on similar problems and providing motivation to each other is a key responsibility.
