I have been working at Loughborough University

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Loughborough University

    Pros

    Excellent scenery and sporting facility. Quite a friendly environment with enormous amount of team work. State of the art engineering facility.

    Cons

    Job insecurity is high. Very quiet and lonely town. Little encouragement about good work done. Unnecessary training courses that waste productive time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maintain the facility on ground. Encourage fellow researchers more about god work done. Be more concerned by researcher's well being.
