So I am looking to apply for a PhD studentship, but have a question regarding living expenses.
Most funded studentships seems to offer around £14 living expenses per year. Is this usually the total amount that students live of for the whole 3-4 years? It seems very low. Do most students supplement with additional income? And if so - how much room is there for additional paid work in a full-time PhD?

You get £14K tax free a year, I'm also looking into PhD's and I think £14K a year is easily do-able, currently living off £10K as a student
I know a few students with jobs to help supplement especially if they have a higher rent - they usually work over the weekend, but availability to work depends on the course
