Car – PGR parking permits are available for us to purchase.

My home mini project is the same as my PhD project, I asked her for recommendations from the list of potential PIs in Birmingham.

Emailed contacts from list, tried to think of other contacts and spoke to other students. The PIP I had initially organised fell through, so I had to find an alternative part way. Still a valuable experience.

Commuting to an away university can be tiring (especially in the winter months), but the supervisors are very understanding of this.
