Yep, I had this but it was after I finished my Bsc. I think they that just to make you look for jobs thinking that everyone on unemployment lines are unskilled, unqualified people- in actual fact more and more people with quailifications are on job-seekers allowance!
Can they do it? Yes, they do check occasionally. I think it's to make people apply more than anything!
Hi well I am about to start my first year of PhD and I have already been signed up to demonstrating in a BMS microbiology class, I assume it's as I am a BMS graduate but don't know tbh! I get ~£12 an hour, then £60-£85 for 4-5 hours of marking of lab scripts.
I was offered an interview at Salford for a GTA as they are cutting a lot of their teaching staff (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-13087147).
Manchester is better known than Salford on the global stage- But as previously said which one do you prefer? And with the current climate you may find you have to apply for both!
Research Experience! It's essential whether you do a masters or go straight from Bsc-PhD. One question: Can you afford a masters degree course?
I personally have opted not to do a MSc, I have an EU funded MSc just in case I didn't get a PhD, but luckily as I had a bit of research experience I got offered a fully funded PhD.
Can you talk to your undergraduate project supervisor or personal tutor?
I would say LSHTM because of it's research links both UK and worldwide- if you are looking for a PhD afterwards there are plenty of research group links. LSHTM is in Bloomsbury rather than Kensington like Imperial, both expensive areas of London but Bloomsbury is more student focused than Kensington so you can find some lower priced food than in the more tourist-y area of Kensington.
Plus LSHTM is more specialist in tropical medicine (which I assume you are interested in) whereas Imperial has an fairly good sized tropical medicine department. My PhD supervisor is already telling me to get connections to LSHTM so I could hopefully (fingers crossed I even pass my PhD) find a post-doc!
