do students on university studentship ave advanatage.


Hey whats the job descrption of a phd on university phd studentship in Uk? what work is supposed to do? how is the work load?does he ave advantage over normal student in terms of supervision

thanks for this forum


I'm on a uni PhD studentship (Ireland though, not UK). I'm at absolutely no advantage over non-funded students in terms of the supervision I get - that varies by department, not funding. I tutor a large number of first year students. I'm on a structured graduate education programme, but all research students here are, and have work to work about a 50 hour week to get all my assignments/research done to deadline.
