Notker the Stammerer Posted July 24, 2012 Share Posted July 24, 2012 Specifically, I'm referring to positions that pay your tuition as well as a stipend in exchange for teaching a few undergrad classes. They're common in US graduate programs, especially in the humanities. Your tuition is paid for, you get teaching experience, and you have enough money to live off of (barely). I'm an American looking at PhD programs in the UK, and it seems like this option doesn't exist. The only funding opportunities I've seen are limited to studentships that might offer you 1500 pounds or so. That's great if you're paying the UK/EU rate of around 4000 pounds a year, but it's just a drop in the bucket if you're paying the international rate of 12000 pounds a year. Not to mention the costs of eating and living indoors, which are two things I've grown accustomed to. Short of Fulbright, is there any way to pay for a UK grad program without being independently wealthy or taking out enormous student loans?
