Doing a Ph.D. is not a spontaneous idea that just comes to your mind. In most cases, this decision is thoroughly considered and well-weighted. Many students who pursue a Ph.D. are passionate about a particular subject and want to spend their research time making important discoveries and contributions towards their chosen field. Many Ph.D. graduates are lucky to be sponsored to do their course and easily find employment since the experience and skills they have gained on a Ph.D. course are transferable and can be applied to other industries.
