What to do after failing to get a PhD placement?

  1. Apr 13, 2010 #1
    Dear fellow Physicists,
    I have failed at obtaining a place on a PhD studentship this year, and would like your advice on what to do next. My mind is set on doing researching with the T2K experiment (particle physics), and I am to finish a Msc in physics this september. I have no money left as I funded my Msc myself. I intend to apply again next school year, but what can I do in the meantime (for about a year?). My thoughts were on teacher training as it is funded, or doing another Msc or Mres on particle physics? But I need to be funded as I have no money. The thought of doing a PhD in materials (as it has vacancies) has crossed my mind, but I have no passion for it. Is there any advice you can shed on my situation, or perhaps you know of a better route than myself? Thank you for reading
