He mentioned that he had suffered a lot of challenges and setbacks in work, study and daily life in 2013. However, he managed to be a PhD candidate of RUC in 2014 after unremitting efforts and meanwhile, other aspects reached a turning point, too.

  PhD Jian Ai mainly talked about how to overcome procrastination and the writing and contribution of dissertation.

In the aspect of how to overcome procrastination, she gave some advice: First, communicating with the research supervisor positively and reporting academic study results regularly; Second, making the plan based on our personal situation and flexibly adjusting it; Third, keeping in touch with family and friends to maintain good mood. When it came to dissertation writing, she thought the topic should be determined as soon as possible and talked with the supervisor timely, in order to accumulate relevant information and literature during the survey process. When contributing the dissertation, we should not only compare the writing styles of different periodicals, but establish our original writing skills and style in this period. Finally, she suggested all attendees knowing the employment situation as early as possible and making a long-term planning. We had better enhance our core competitiveness, live up to teachers¡¯ expectations and maintain the competitive edge of RUC Law School.
