    Hi, guys!
    I've just finished my master's thesis in Glasgow Uni and currently looking for a PhD in UK.
    Since I'm an international student, almost all the programs require from me to cover the difference between UK/EU and Overseas fees.
    Do you know any funding organisations I can ask this money from?
    Thank you a lot.
    P.S.: I'm really desperate - what I've learned so far is that we have here a vicious circle: funding guys want an acceptance letter first, and the same want PhD admission teams.
    My country has no opportunities to supply me with a grant - we are at the state of war now.

    There are a small number of PhD programs which will offer full funding to internationals, although they are competitive. There are also scholarships awarded by universities themselves which accomplish the same thing however they are just as competitive.

    Ukraine. War with Russians sucks all the money from the science to the army and related, cutting the financing/grants/paid days for researchers (whose salary was already lower than the lowest price for the rent).
    Not mentioning that we are for 50 years behind Europe and the UK in the level and quality of equipment...

    It is actually quite nice for the UK, considering the overseas fees often crosses 30 000 pounds a year, which is money from an outside economy pouring into the English economy. And quite frankly, most students remain in the UK after their education, not only moving money to England through paying fees, but also using their labour in English highly qualified jobs.

    They are talking about fees of uni courses, not jobs.
    Just stop.

    Indeed. And with whom then do we have battles in the East regions, and who have taken Crimea?

    Your unemployment rate has never been lower - and especially within higher education, where higher educated people have higher employment rates, with a greater proportion in high-skilled employment, lower unemployment rates, lower inactivity rates and higher median salaries than non-graduates. Higher educated jobs are not severely faced by unemployment, and there are not jobs being stolen or taken from brits. Rather than educating themselves within your country and leaving, forcing the country into loss of highly educated competence, they pay back to society - without harming anyone.

    That's true. I found one which covers EU/UK fees, however, I am required to cover the difference. This is why I am asking here - I have found no scholarships at the uni's site that fit me.

    Might be worth looking at other uni's then

    Just was wondering:
    is it possible to work part-time to cover these fees while studying a PhD?

    Maybe if you got a job at the uni as a Teaching Assistant or Research Assistant, or did your PhD part time too. Otherwise it wouldn't be recommended.
