Hello Everyone,

I am an Indian, looking for opportunities in UK (for PhD). I recently heard from a Professor that if I can cover the differences (UK and the international fees), I could stand a good chance for this project (with the stipend) which am very much interested in. So, before taking a leap, I would like to know if there are any additional fees (apart from tuition fees) that will be part of the program.

Any suggestions or opinion will be highly appreciated.

Cheers !

If you are working in science, then you might also have bench fees. These range from 500 quid to £10k per year in my lab depending on how my supervisor feels at the time. There's other small fees that vary by uni such as equipment, printing, books, etc but you can often do without these or get these covered later on.

I would worry more about you are going to find the £30-40k for the difference between UK and international fees...

Hello TreeofLife,

Thanks very much for your opinion. I have decided not to proceed with this position, as it goes beyond £45K inclusive of all expenses.

Cheers !
