Wow, a 400-page thesis? I understand the feeling you're going through. Since you nearly to the end, it's best to repair the corrections as soon as possible. I'm not surprised you're burnt out after a 400 page.
Congratulations on succeeding in your PhD. I do sometimes think if I made the right decision for PhD.
Take a day off and then starting going through the errors.
I also agree with your statement about marking. It's defintely subjective based on staff. It's quite rare to have a good set of staff for a research project.
Of course not. If you like to do a PhD then go for it. I'm pretty sure you're not the first person to do a PhD with that background.
You have more chances of doing a PhD in a STEM field without a master's. I'm not sure about humanities fields though.
It's tougher to get a PhD position without a master's but it's not possible.
I suggest you contact the university you wish to enroll in for the entry requirements.
I just was talking to someone about this. It was about self fund yourself and go to a Russell Group university or go to a ex-poly that is funded (fully)?
It was agreed that the funded option was far better not because of the funding but also the supervisors were very famous in their niches. There are qualified staff in ex-poly.
I will not worry about the status. In fact, most people in this day of age don't really know what is an 'ex-poly'.
I was a PhD student Liverpool University which contained a scholarship. I cannot comment in regards of rent because I was living with my parents but I would say Liverpool area is quite cheap in general.
What course are you doing? I was in the Computer Science department?
I personally wouldn't pay for a PhD. I rather get a studentship than pay it myself. I remember back in college, a teacher quoted that "PhD as a whole benefit more to the university than yourself. Why should you pay for it?". I would try getting funding first before paying a penny.
I'm sure there is something out there for you.
