    I worked at University of East Anglia full-time

    Pros

    Situated in Norwich, just two hours by train from London. The city is not too big yet lively enough with plenty to do. I made a range of friends here. The campus is lovely. Part of a massive research park, there are plenty of opportunities to network with other scientists. Opportunities for lateral growth beyond your PhD via the possibility of getting involved in several extracurricular, teaching and outreach activities available on campus. Norwich is cycle friendly.

    Cons

    Services within the university are expensive. Lunch, coffee, membership to the sports park and even clubs and societies membership. The bike shop on campus is a rip off too. Administration is inefficient and slow....I spent a lot of time sorting out paperwork in addition to my actual research.
