Olivia and Millsy..thanks for your ideas, you guys are of great help!..Warwick family 2 BR housing is 670 a month, should I look at off campus then for a 2 BR? any other information you may have or websites of interest would be very helpful. thanks a bunch!
thanks a lot for your thoughts - I am a Canadian, so our system is similar to US, and yes Warwick has student housing, so I'll investigate those. Yes, we'll bring our car but I'd prefer to live on campus/walk/bike.
Our boys are 6 and 2, so do you know much about schooling options and costs? Is education free in the UK in public primary schools? I know kidergarten/daycare for our second one might cost a bit. What about food, medical insurance etc., are they expensive compared to North America? thanks!!
thank you guys so much for sharing your perspectives, positives and negatives, that's what its all about really -- its all in your perspective and outlook to life i guess. my sincere thanks to academicmom - being a positive person myself, i've learned to challenge myself. On the practical side tho, i must add that we are financially stable, having worked for 10 years, and the kids are 6 and 2, so i dont think i'd jeopardise their life much. I am also fortunate to have a very supportive partner.
As we are coming from overseas, I'd like to know how much it costs roughly for a month, renting on campus, travel etc in the midlands..thanks very much!!
I got accepted for a PhD in UK. We are a family of 4 with two young boys. Can anyone summarize their experience doing a Phd in the UK, when they have/had a family with 2 young children..affordability, schooling, balncing work-life, etc., etc., thanks a lot!
