thanks for the reply! Well I have a problem mainly with the city the studentship is in and I found that the whole cardiovascular topic is nothing I want to do a PhD in, I am just not interested in it enough. I had these doubts before (I actually planned on cancer biology) but thought I might like it after all. However, I have quite profound problems keeping up with the reading just because I am simply not interested in it. I know it's early days but I want to evaluate my options. I was thinking the best strategy might be to actually do the MSc and then work for a certain time before trying to apply for a new PhD again. But I am definitely sure that I want to pursue a PhD and a career in research.
I was recently accepted on a four year funded PhD program (including MSc Res) but am dead unhappy with the course and the new city. Does anyone have any experience what my options are? Could I possibly transfer the studentship to another university which has the same funding body (BHF)? Or how likely would it be for me to find another funded PhD in case I drop out after the MScRes part of the program?
If anyone has any experience in that direction whatsoever please let me know.
