Hi all,

Can anyone please tell me if I still get to keep my stipend (allocated pro-rata) if I option for doing my PhD part-time whilst working full-time or do I lose my funding if I am in full-time employment? Also, if I do get to keep my stipend - is it income dependent?
I couldn't find any information on this as most people opt out for full-time PhD and part-time work, which I might also do, but before deciding I would like to know what rules apply to the funding in both circumstances, so any information is much appreciated .

Thank you in advance for your help and happy week everyone .

Many thanks,
Emona

Who is the funder, odds are there is a well defined rule set for this if it's a research council or university. Also is the funding time limited, e.g tied to a project or grant with a specific end date ?

This will depend on the rules set by your funding body.

Heya, thank you for your response and please take my apologies for the delay in mine (got a wisdom tooth growing so felt poorly over the weekend). I will request the details from the unis I have applied to - I just wanted to check what are my options if I opt out for the part-time version of it versus the full-time one but wasn't sure if the rules differ from one uni to another, now I can see that they do, so thank you for clarifying this to me .

Thank you for your response, I didn't know the rules vary from one uni to another so will double-check with the ones I have applied to.

Just to give you a bit more info - when I did my full-time PhD, the stipends were conditional on students not working; however, you could do uni-based work, like tutoring, assisting with open days, assisting with undergrad labs and marking work/presentations. So, to labour the point (sorry!), you need to get the conditions up front, so you can decide if it is right for you. Good luck!
