XJR, I do not think Oz is giving very bad advice. Your link states: "if a car is imported permanently into the UK [...]".
So there are two issues with this statement:
1. If you drive a car from one EU country to another you do NOT IMPORT a car, according to the general definiton of Import.
2. "Permanently", unlikely if he is only here for PhD studies.
Apart from that: the police does not care and it's unlikely that a car will be stopped because of that.
why not. It might be more fun.
On a different note-even if most neurologists are from London or Oxbridge, I doubt that they all have a PhD from those institutions. I don't know if you have noticed but: unlike MSc, MA or MBA vary in value dependent on institution (the same with BSc and so on), however, once you reach PhD level it doesn't really matter from which institution the degree is.
if my car is registered in another EU country and I drive to UK, then there is no registration necessary. I'm just driving a car registered in a different EU country, and this is legal. I checked with my local government and they assured me this. The only problem is of course the lights - but I changed those.
We are not talking about "importing" a car from the US to UK, for instance. What we are doing is like driving from France to Germany, no registration necessary - at all.
what are you guys going on about "importing" all the time. My car is registered in the Netherlands. I changed the lights over there. Then I drove onto the ferry and that was it. No registration, and nothing else. My car is still registered in NL and I know 100% for sure, that I do not need to register it in the UK!
On a different note, speed and parking tickets are now being sent to all over Europe (since 1st of January), i.e. if you park in the wrong place and receive a ticket you will have to pay it from now on even if you have a car with a foreign (EU) number plate.
no it's not compulsory. You don't need to register your car here and likewise you don't need to register with the police etc. if you are an EU citizen. Furthermore, you don't need to change your speedometer to miles per hour - that little bit of calculation you can do yourself.
But if you want to do all that stuff and waste your own time--have fun..
Some argue that the most difficult and depressing time during a 36 month PhD is the time between month 16 and 20 (close to the "mid point"). Personally I found the first months also very depressing.
Anybody confirming the statement above or any experiences concerning this issue. Is there a point in time (for example after month 25) where the probability to quit is lower?
I bought the Apple Hifi a few days ago (£229) and never regretted it for one second. It looks stylish, and great sound. Also it makes listening to Ipod easier. Who else on this forum thinks that the invention of the Ipod was one of the best milestones of humanity (slight exaggeration)?
