Thank you everyone for your replies (both on and off list) - I really
appreciate the time you've taken to write them. There is a lot to think
about in there, which I will spend some time doing.

I've not made any decisions yet (the university have kept me quite busy
since December) but I will let you know what I end up doing.

Best wishes, and many thanks again.

> Currently, giving the time available to the students, I would be thinking
