I have studied for two semesters so far, I got a research proposal from my supervisor now and I am reviewing it. It is crucial for me to have at least 2-3 papers based on my thesis. I am thinking of asking my professors about doing a literature review. What kinda things we should expect from our supervisor? I think the student needs to be active instead of the supervisor. What kinda things the student can do in order to processed in his/her thesis and get it done in the expected time?
I appreciate any advice that comes from you.
Edit: There are not enough courses related to my thesis, so is this a problem? what can I do?
