      Working towards a PhD full-time is a lot of work in itself and it can be really busy sometimes, but that varies throughout the year. Most PhD’s are paid so you don’t have to worry too much about working. It is always possible to get a part-time job along side your PhD if your looking to make some extra money. Luckily being at a university there are lots of opportunities to work with undergraduates doing tutoring, marking and teaching.

      There are options of doing PhD’s part time and having a full time job at the same time but that really depends on the subject. for me that wouldn’t really work as I am in the lab a lot so need to be at the university.
