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.
I'm not really sure, people have been recommended me to do so but I'm not sure if it's worth my money? I don't see any traction, it's not as though it will help me pass my PhD. I guess if you have grants then why not but for the purpose of the PhD, it is not required.
When I was enrolled, I was told that I would get 2 supervisor but ended up with one when I started the course. However, I do recommend having 2 supervisors (or more) because sometimes your primary supervisor may not be suitable in some areas. You also get more support.
It's sort of a hassle with one as your work is one sided. It's best to have two heads instead of one.
I've experienced appeals before and based on my experience and I'm going to be truthful, the chances of winning are slim. What I noticed is that appeals generally favor more on the examiner's feedback than anything else.
It's hard to believe this but don't be surprised if they didn't consider your appeal.
I've been having this question in my head about 4th year in a PhD program (3 years funded PhD).
Correct me if I'm wrong, in the 4th year when you are unfunded, do you pay for the tuition fees for the 4th year?
Can there be any funding to support the 4th year?
EDIT: I think the title is misleading a bit. I've got 3 year funding, in the fourth year do you pay tuition fees or not?
