I feel it's easier to obtain a phd position while still study, and this in the same department as we know the people; than when we're already finished our studies and try to apply to other universities; also there are more chances to get accepted if we say to be self funded, but will have touble later asking for financial support: open to discussion.

I think you are absolutely correct. I have found it very difficult because I have taken a year away (not by choice, but because there was very few PhD's around when I applied).

I am currently doing a masters by research at one university but am applying to others to do a PhD-Alot of lecturers at my current university don't understand why I want to change and go somewhere else! I have been to told it would just be easier to stay. But after doing my Bsc and now MSc here I need a change-Will this make it difficult to get a PhD somewhere else? Especially as I will need funding??
