I am expected to receive an average stipend of around $37,000 per year. I have to support just myself and while I am used to living modestly, Sydney rent seems to be significantly higher than a lot of other cities'.

I am not to keen to get a part-time job but would it be necessary to actually have one to live decently? :confused:

short answer, probably not, rent will be at least 400 a week ($21k a year) leaving 300 a week to live on, it's possible but not easy

not sure, i would imagine there are alway opportunities, it depends on your skills and desire to do extra. I understand that phd students often get offered teaching or lecturing work if they are competent
