Quote From PhDhere:
I have several PhD colleagues who are in their late 30s and 40s, so as others already have said age isn't an issue. However, just because your colleagues are going for a PhD doesn't mean that they are going to be better off. Each path has its own pros and cons depending on your circumstances. Go for a PhD if you think that it will benefit you in the end (whether going into academia or getting positions in industry that necessitate having one).
Best Wishes


Thank you for your suggestions @PhDhere

Quote From Tudor_Queen:
It depends on your context and other personal factors that might be important (e.g., finance, other commitments, support), but definitely not on your age. Many people pursue PhDs in the years beyond their 20s and 30s.


Quote From Nad75:
Most people in the incoming class with me are in their 30s. It's smart to get a savings buffer before beginning, so you have the financial freedom to attend conferences or travel during the PhD.


I am financially broke right now, That's the primary reason

I have completed my master's degree year ago and took a gap of 2-3 years before committing to the Ph.D. Right now my financial condition is worse and I don't want to make any decision in any urgency. My peers are getting enrolled for Ph.D. and I am getting worried by watching them. I am 27 right now and planning to collect enough money and build my resume strong to get into a decent Ph.D. program in Europe or Asia. Is my decision wrong ? I need some advice from experienced peoples. Thank you
