      Well I started my undergraduate degree at 18 and I finished my PhD at age 28 so 10 years for me, but I know people who have taken 7 years and some who have taken many more years. For me, during a lot of that time I was actually employed to work as a scientist so I was able to earn money and work towards my PhD at the same time.
