Hi guys,

Some PhDs are 4 year programs where the first year is an integrated MRes. I'm unclear on how funding for these programs works though, is the "fully funded" part only applicable to the latter 3 years (the actual PhD part) and then you still have to do the usual Student Finance loans stuff to cover the first year? Or would the fees for the first year usually be waived?

I can email the unis themselves about this of course but I just wanted to ask for a general answer here. Thanks

If it's a fully funded 4 year PhD including an MRes the MRes is part of the funding.
