    StarStarStarStarStar Current PhD Researcher in Glasgow, Scotland

    If you are a PhD student here (as with most other universities) you have very few benefits and, as you are not a real employee, you do not have access to sick pay etc either - something to be wary of if you do consider starting a PhD

    The good thing about benefits is the NEST Pension scheme. The University contributes up to 13% on top to the scheme which is a lot higher than UK average and the requested minimum.
