I've started a PhD last year but due to financial reasons I don't think I can stay for the whole program since it's not fully funded. I've received a job offer from a very reputable company which solves my money problem & looks like a promising career path. I've accepted the offer several months ago and so I've thought very carefully about it and my mind is made up.
How do I tell my university and more importantly supervisor without causing any havoc or emotional strains since they've both been very supportive so far. Another thing is that I'm on a student visa and need to obtain a work permit which requires the school's help so it's very important that I maintain a good relationship even though I'm quitting.
Thank you very much.
