Hi guys! I was wondering if someone who is on a 15K scholarship can live normally in the UK (Liverpool in particular) or they need to find a part time job. How much is the rent more or less and how much do you spend in addition?

Hi,

I was a PhD student Liverpool University which contained a scholarship. I cannot comment in regards of rent because I was living with my parents but I would say Liverpool area is quite cheap in general.

What course are you doing? I was in the Computer Science department?

Usually most (if not all) funding bodies won't allow you to work more than 6 hours per week if you are receiving full funding from them. That is to make sure that you are fully focused on the PhD they are paying you for.

The amount of rent you pay will vary by type of accommodation and where it is in relation to the city centre etc. If you budget well, a £15k stipend is enough to live comfortably (outside of London at least), and you also may be able to save some along the way.

I am on 14.5k in Manchester and living okay. You aren't rich but the bursary being tax free massively helps. You can also do teaching assistance which can boost your wage during term time.
