My spouse was offered permanent employment in the UK for a position that would start next year. I'm currently in a Physics PhD program here in the US. I already have my Masters degree, but only recently have begun research in earnest (up until now, I was taking the core courses required of my program). I would like to continue my PhD, but it doesn't seem feasible for me to continue with my current school, so I would have to find a PhD program in the UK. So what is a PhD like in the UK? Do you have to pay fees/tuition, or are those waived/paid for as you do your dissertation research? Besides Cambridge and Oxford, what are other good schools for a physics PhD? Any other advice or tips?
