There are no additional benefits for a PhD student as to be expected. You can earn extra money on the side by taking part in tutorials and laboratory demonstrating for undergraduates. Flexible work hours are a part of the course. You can work from home depending on the project.
It’s a great benefit package that secures maintenance of your employment and retirement. I did not need to worry about not being financially stable if an accident happens or if I would decide to take a maternity leave.
Amazing pension, lots of perks from cinema discount to car hire saving, good holiday allowance with closure days. Only perk they don't offer is gym discount but they gave the on site gum that is good value
Flexible working hours and time to time project meeting review. Handled Project with full independence and completed successfully.
There is ZERO in the benefits package for PhD students, apart from TFL student discount.
