Since the interviews for cohort 4 are currently ongoing we decided to write about our experience as PhD students in London and in the Fluids CDT. We hope to help answer some of your questions, and give you some insight on what to expect if you decide to join the Fluids CDT family.
Let’s start with the tricky parts (so when you read the positives at the end you’ll have long forgotten this). Living in London is as expensive as you expect it to be. Two of the main sinkholes of your income are accommodation and transport. However, depending on where you live you could walk or cycle to university and avoid paying for the tube.
