Hi guys!
Please help me sorting out this huge problem I have in front of me.
I will finish my MA in February and I would like to start a PhD next September/October.
Now, the problem is that the applications for PhD scholarships end in early February, so by then I won't be able to apply.
So basically I have to choose between wait next year to apply for my PhD, or start in October without a scholarship.
I would like to ask you if it is possible for 2nd year student to apply for some sort of financial help or a scholarship.
I won't be able to pay my fees in UK otherwise.

Any suggestion will be kindly appreciate.
Thanks! :)

I'd like to know how is the typical day of a PhD student.
How many hours do they have to spend in the department? ( I'm curious about humanities, so nothing concerning laboratories)
How many free time do they have? Like there will be enough time in a day to do a part-time job?

It would be great if one of the PhD student will write how is his everyday life.

Thanks! :)

Thread: PhD Funding in Ireland--Please help me!

Hi everybody!

I'm thinking of doing a PhD in Ireland cause I've already been there and I would love to come back ( I'm Italian, btw).
However, this is my problem: how can I get some sort of financial support?
Fees are really expensive and so it is the cost of living. That's why I don't think I could afford them.
I wonder how normal people can pay all these money! I mean, I did a brief cost calculation and I'll need around 14000€ just for fees, room and board.

What should I do to get a funding/scholarship/grant?
How many chances do I have to get one of those?
How do Irish people usually deal with it? Everything is new for me because in Italy PhDs are really different so I feel like I'm missing something important, something I should know... I'm not even sure I've fully understood the difference between scholarship, fundings and grants!

Please somebody help me! :)
