    I have a potential supervisor I approached with my proposal but no funding (not even applied). What route did you take? Funding before or after a supervisor? Self-fund?

    I approached my supervisor first then applied for funding, failed to get it and self-funded. Some supervisors might be able to advise on potential sources of funding (or put you in contact with someone else who can), so advance contact can be useful.
