Frequently asked questions by international PhD students

Here are a list of questions that are frequently asked by International PhD students (at least by those at WBS) and the answers are not readily available. 

  1. Can I teach while doing my PhD?
  2. Can I supervise students doing their Masters?
  3. Can I become part of the staff in the University?
  4. Can I get a scholarship after I start my PhD?
  5. Can I join a society as a PhD student?
  6. Is there a bank that does not change fees to International students to open an account?
  7. Can I get a second supervisor?
  8. Is it possible for me to get FREE accommodation in the campus?
  9. Is there a place in or around the campus where I can park my car for free?
  10. Can I get free coffee/ tea in the morning in the campus?
  11. Can I get married in the campus?

Ok, I admit some of the questions are NOT asked that frequently but believe it or not , the answer to all the questions is a big "YES!"

    Can we keep pets, Dilip?

  2. Hi Roger, The University says: “No. Not under any circumstances.” (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/accommodation/staff/faq/)
    I am not sure whether any of the labs do testing on animals (I hope not) – if there are, you can adopt one of them as a pet . However, this might be problematic. On the other hand, there are loads of wild bunnies, ducks and other animals roaming though out the campus. Just don’t take them back to your residences.
