Hi, I am a PhD student and while I don't actually get funding from the AHRB, my university uses their rules as its model for their funding scheme.
The situ is that I had maternity leave on full scholarship when I was 2 yrs into my period of study. I am now planning to go on mat leave approx one month before the end of my (4 year) period of study.
So, my question is - am I entitled to another lot of maternity leave on full scholarship even though I only have a month left to run on my funding?
I'm just hoping someone else may have been in the same situ before I go and see what my university say.
I'm a self funding phd student. I think you'd be very lucky if they gave you it My maternity pay is dependant on returning to work after my leave finishes - I'm not sure how this would apply if you only had a month left... What's your phd on?
