    Speak to your tutor at university. They’ll be able to explain it and answer your questions about your interests specifically.

    Hey, PQ thanks for the response. Yes, I know I definitely should. But I just wanna know the general idea of it from anybody here who have some experiences more than I do.

    Hi there!

    I found a really useful resource on PhD funding in the UK, on this website (findaphd.com) - I highly recommend you take a close look at all of the funding solutions listed on there. Generally speaking, PhD's are funded through government loans, university scholarships, research council funding or charity funding.

    There are different caveats to different funding solutions, which are often dependent on your nationality and where you live.

    Let me know if you have any further questions!

    Google it then. Read Wikipedia. There’s plenty of places you could look to find out what ‘the general idea’ of a PhD is in the UK.
