And she was counting her study from 2011 to still now. At this moment she is doing PhD at ucl and at the same time teaching assistants. And holiday time she was working several institutions as part time last 5 years. Ref: her facebook. In April, 2014, she moved warwick uni, after that we had unofficially discontract. I had divorced file, 25th June, 2016 and got degree 2nd June, 2016. At this moment I have her honours certificate but I do not have her master's and present ucl uni documents.
