  1. Hi
    I know this might not be the place to talk abt it…but since I urgently need to decide for my graduate studies , I would like to know about your opinion about the EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Programme…
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of such programmes, compared to the normal research postgraduate studies?

    Hi Daniel,

    This place is as good a place as any to talk about it! I was not EPSRC funded at St. Andrews so, unfortunately, I’m not likely to be of much help. But maybe there is someone lurking out there who was. I would highly recommend talking to someone in the EPSRC program and also someone outside it. Someone who could probably help is my fellow blogger Suze Gildert who I believe was EPSRC funded.

  3. Thanks! I’ll go have a look there… 🙂
