Hi Mony! Go for it if you still have the passion to study. What would your visa situation be, though?

I did my MA in an "OK" university around 150 in the rankings and my PhD (fully funded) at a top university - top 20. There was a world of difference; resources, intellectual stimulation, opportunities, contacts... I'd say ask around and try to aim as high as you can. I do not know if rankings are reliable but my own experience with these two institutions tells me that there are difference. In addition, to be admitted to a higher university you pass a more competitive selection, right or not that gives a message to employers.

Quote From TreeofLife:
If you can't work basic things like this out for yourself, I struggle to see how you would do a PhD tbh.

That's a bit harsh! I cannot work it out either and I have a PhD already...

Look you have done amazingly well considering the difficult situation! Take a couple of days off and get back to it after a break. Congratulations for having gone so far and keep going.

I did a PhD full time while working and having a family. It is possible. I found that having a job was helping me to feel competent and an adult when I was infantilised by my PhD supervisor. The fact of having a set time in the week to do my PhD made me very efficient in researching and writing. I completed my thesis in three years, had a positive viva with very very minor typographic corrections and am now editing my thesis for publication with a major university press. It can be done if you are focused, fairly organised and you want it.
