I mentioned it in the interview, as well as my research plan. However, I made sure that my research plan was constructed in such a way that my accomplishments in the first two years (as if the extension never happens) could be a complete and self-contained effort -- but the overall topic/plan was assuming that I extend to PhD. This happens most of the time (very few people stick to the 2-yr research student option), so they fully expect you to do so as well -- just make sure you can articulate a plan for the 2-yr period during the interview.Hi guys! I have a question on the switch from Research to Master/PhD. Is this a serious issue when applying (i.e. during the interview)?
Did you guys mention it in your application besides the check boxes? If so how do you guys fit it into your timeline if you guys include something like that in your application?
I am wondering about this, since the entrance period (exam) to these Master/PhD seems to be set in every spring and fall, and it will overlap with the research studies, if the research studies involve some sort of end product.
Hope you guys are enjoying the stay in Japan so far Everything sounds very exciting!
I head over there in October Can't wait!
