or you just butthurt that i able to fund my study???

I doubt anyone will pay for a doctoral program.  Many people are able to save thousands/tens of thousands of dollars from financial aid when doing master's.  How can a person survive three to five years without income?  Almost everyone is on some sort of scholarship.  Though a scholarship is more or less guaranteed as long as you are admitted, it is probably worthwhile to note that the amount is tiny.  I read about a top Malaysian student who is enrolled in a Cambridge doctoral program getting 12k GBP a year.  This is an awfully small amount of money.  However, if you think it is fine, then may be you are a suitable candidate. smile.gif

erm.. i am not sure, none of my friend/family had done PhD or offer funding for PhD..
GBP12k is not a small amount dude... drool.gif drool.gif

i will be glad if some Uni offer me a PhD research program...

Sorry, I thought you were another typical asian mentality person who takes PhD for the pay. Guess I kinda went overboard there rolleyes.gif

Let me make it up to you,

You know that RM 200 voucher the gomen gave?

I really have no use of it and was thinking of giving it to someone else who needs it more then me but I don't really know who to give it to.

Well, I know who to give it to now, I know it isn't much but this will help ease your financial burden in some way. Please accept it.

I'm not trolling you or anything now. I'm serious.

I really think you should have it, let me know ya  wink.gif
*
dude, now you make me feel like crying.. for offering me help
is alright mang, you keep the 200 voucher...
me all good..

It's a bit hard to get scholarships to Europe at this time, but you can try around Asia or US.

My friend just got her application for a European research assistant post rejectd. There were 140+ applicants for the same position and she has published tonnes of papers and patents after her Masters when working at a R&D centre.

Wow. Is she applying to work in ETH Zurich? Maybe she can try getting a phD and then work from there? Where I am studying basically as long as results are not bad. (strong second upper class), getting a phD position is not very hard. I blame the ministry of defense here for still having a big budget despite all the cuts in cost.


Back to topic. TS, it depends on what you want to work after the phD also I think. If you are not thinking of being a lecturer or a researcher, I think getting a phD in Malaysia is kind of pointless. I definitely cannot do a phD, research is not my cup of tea.

Wow! Sarcasm detected.

She's applying for a very specific area. Not sure what's the research is like in ETH for her area, but she applied for a uni in Sweden.

Singapore seems to like her, though. So I think she'll be heading down south.

No really. What I said is nothing less than the truth and I dont mean to be sarcastic. I have received emails from professors (the email are directed to everyone in the final year, saying there are many slots available in phD and if anyone is interested, they are willing to have a meeting and see where it goes.) My uni though is very good in radar research, hence the funding from ministry of defense. Yesterday, in my master level course, my lecturer just casually brought over in a conversation that he gives lectures to people in NATO very regularly. Everyone was like WTF. Then again, he is really crazy about radar.

Check out: http://www.ee.ucl.ac.uk/staff/academic/hgriffit#

Some of my friend even did phD from a BEng degree, and from what I know their result are good but not amazing.

I say phD is easy to get, doesnt mean everyone can do it. Definitely not me. I am already sick of my final year project.

this is the common misconception. people thought University of Sheffield (UoS) and Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) are the same. actually, it's NOT.

the top world ranking university is University of Sheffield. SHU on the other hand is not in most world ranking, somewhere along the line of malaysian universities. hence SHU is not in JPA's list of 4 star universities, let alone 5 star. which explains where no malaysian sponsored students end up there.

there are still many malaysians end up in SHU though. mostly bcoz of twinning programmes from some colleges in malaysia, and the illusion that they're going to graduate from a world class university. sadly not.
