    Pros

    i have had the pleasure to work with a great professor as my supervisor. That mean all my professional needs were met, and i was allowed to take the time required to ensure a good balance between my personal life. a number of opportunities were given to me allowing me to complete my PhD even ahead of schedule

    Cons

    being a PhD student, your time at Loughborough might very well rely on working with a good supervisor. if you are unlucky enough to get a supervisor who has no time for you or does not stop to think about your needs as a person and student, and instead demands that you do as they say, it can be very very taught to complete successfully your research within the 3 years, and you will definitely not enjoy it

    Advice to Management

    provide anonymous reviews by researchers on how friendly and easy to work with supervisors are. i have heard so many sad stories from students who are really desperate but can not do much about it
