Hi I wanted to ask something about whether there is any kind of salary or funding available if you are studying towards your PhD/ DPhil at one of both universities, just out of curiosity. In Germany, we do not need to pay tuition fees and most students that are undertaking research towards a PhD have most often some "scientific or tutor jobs" at their university, so they will get a salary between 1000 and 1500€. This means, that they will not need any kind of support by their parents. Is this also possible if you are studying towards your PhD in the UK? (I would find it also interesting to get some information about the USA too, as it is something that interests me.) So how is the financial situation of PhD candidates in general?
