Thanks everyone. I think the best bet is to contact my old MSc supervisor and get his opinion on it all and my chances of getting the studentship. I do feel bad because my current PhD is also funded and im not sure how easy it is to quit? But contacting my old supervisor is good advice.
Hi everyone. First post.
Ill try to keep this brief.
Basically I have recently started a PhD (2 weeks ago) after finishing an MSc. I have always wanted to do a PhD. I wanted to do a PhD with my MSc project supervisor but he didn't have anything at the time so I looked elsewhere and accepted a PhD at the uni I am at now. However,my current supervisor is quite inexperienced (Im his first ever PhD student) and a bit disorganised which worries me, even though he is helpful and really friendly, its not a very social environment either - basically I really miss where I was working for my MSc.
Recently an opportunity has come up with my old MSc supervisor who I got on really well with, and I was thinking of applying for it whilst sticking with my current PhD until I find out if I get this new one, although it is for a highly competitive studentship. I really enjoyed where I was for my MSc and I would love to go back and wouldn't consider doing this unless it was my old supervisor, but at the same time feel conflicted about applying for a PhD position whilst just starting another PhD.
Any advice would be great as this is stressing me out.
