Hi folks,
For an application I'm making, I need to upload proof of my masters degree. I have just realised that I don't know what this would be. A letter or something? Or a photograph of the certificate?
Help appreciated!
Thanks
Tudor

Thread: Gap year before PhD?

I agree that a gap year or so will do no harm and will broaden your skills and perspective etc. I suppose there is a chance that there could be less funding down the line. But actually I think that won't be the case , as research is something the UK likes to invest in. But in any case, you'll be a more competitive applicant with the experience under your belt! So yeh, no harm and some possible benefits of gap year!

Thread: How to apply to research PhD in UK

Hi!

No, they are separate technically. A scholarship (funding) usually must come together with a PhD, but you can be accepted to do a PhD without having a scholarship (funding), in which case you would be looking at self-funding.

To be honest I don't know much about scholarships per se - just research council funding (studentships). In the case of those, you apply for the PhD at the university and you also apply for the funding via the university.

Someone had a similar question below. Not sure if it will help. Others may explain it better!

Best of luck!

Has something just happened or is everything that's already been going on weighed down on you? If you are still online and see this message, you could try calling 116 123 (the Samaritans). There is someone there 24/7 to talk. But please reply and let us know you're ok. Are you living in the UK? That number may only work in the UK. So if you're in another country, please use Google for a number you can call there if you are contemplating ending your life, or indeed if you just need to talk to someone. Hope you're ok and will keep checking for your follow up messages on here.

Yes, don't give up. How are you getting on now? You will come away with something, not nothing. You are not a failure. Have you decided what to do?

Ah OK! Guess they all do it differently. I would just call them. They don't even need to know who you are if you're just ringing to clarify what the process is and when you should have the answer. Good luck!

Is this the US process? I think it is done differently in the UK. Can you just call them (student admin) to find out?

This scares me as I am currently exempt from CT as still registered as a FT student yet have started an RA job as I finish off my thesis. Think I'd best declare that I am working though still registered as FT student. I hate CT. Especially when living in an area where the council do next to jack to maintain the area - massive potholes etc. :/

Thanks all! I think my view is quite closely aligned with Ian's here, which is why I was in a bit of conundrum (wanting to match the level of informality but not quite feeling comfortable with it quite yet). I think my "hello John" allowed me to show some respect, and going forward it'll be "hi John". I would have preferred a "dear John" with it being our first ever formal communication and with him being a professor. Nevermind... the moment is forever gone! :-D

pm133 I like what you said about how I want the relationship - hierarchical or peer-to-peer - and that being reflected in the form of greeting. It's quite interesting really.

Now I really should finish my thesis. Printing this week!

Thanks for sharing - I'm glad it's not just me that finds it rude! It kind of feels like slap in the face! I don't get offended though - as usually people who do it are fine in person - and so I figure it's just their email style and it isn't meant to be rude. It seems way less common here in the UK - I don't really know anyone who does it here. It seems way more common in the States. I just can't figure out if anyone can address anyone like that. I just can't imagine addressing my manager or supervisor like that. One day maybe I'll bring myself to be able to it! And yes, I decided to use Hello name, as that felt more formal than high and more polite than name only! :D
