I have a first, distinction, ARHC-funded PhD and several publications and I'm still struggling. it is hard, but if you have the grit for it then you might be ok!
That's definitely encouraged me to really give it my all then, thanks I'll be as pro-active as soon as I start my Masters, and look for networking opportunities immediately. As part of my course, we are required to attend research seminars and conventions so that should be good for that kind of thing.

Thanks for the advice, I won't give up

I'm going to start applying for funded PhDs with a starting date of September/October 2020 soon, so that I can start immediately after I finish my Masters. I've been looking on FindaPhD.com but at the moment it seems that most of them are advertising January 2020 entry, so I guess I just need to wait a while longer.

Mither your (prospective?) disso supervisor about this stuff, too. They will very likely be in the loop about some stuff that you might not necessarily find yourself. best of luck with it

Yeah I'm going to ask my personal tutor and project supervisor about this stuff when I start, I don't start until 1st October though, and I was worried that if I leave it until then I might miss out on funded PhDs for Sep/Oct 2020 entry. I imagine that I'll have to ask my undergraduate tutor and project supervisor to write some of my references for PhDs since my Masters tutor/supervisor won't really know me well enough until April when we start our research project.
