  1. Is there any information regarding the impact of COVID-19 (and Brexit) on funding in British universities? I mean, it was scarce to begin with, but I assume it's worse now. Last year I was accepted to two PhD programs I was really interested in, but only won a small scholarship that isn't nearly enough for the exorbitant overseas fees. Now that those same insane fees apply to EU students as well, I assume the competition for funding is going to be even tougher.
  2. Hi everyone. I am reapplying to graduate programs this year. Really sad about Brown not accepting new doctoral students this year, it was one of my top choices. Anyway... I was wondering how to phrase emails to professors who I have corresponded with last year. They have all replied, their answers ranging from very positive to neutral. I tried to get the answer from Google but all the guides refer to first time applying, introducing yourself, etc., which I feel would just look weird, as we have already corresponded. To this I have to add that English is not my first language so I'm extra nerv
  3. So this year I am reapplying to a few of the graduate programs that I have applied to last year. I am not sure how to phrase emails to professors who I have corresponded with last year. They have all replied, their answers ranging from very positive to neutral. I tried to get the answer from Google but all the guides refer to first time applying, introducing yourself etc., which I feel would just look weird, as we have already corresponded. To this I have to add that English is not my first language so I'm extra nervous. Would appreciate your input.
  4. According to posters in The Student Room, Clarendons have already been allocated, I was aware of the slim chances from the beginning, but still, knowing that I probably would not get to go to Oxford leaves me feeling heartbroken.
  5. Does anyone know whether it is considered appropriate to email your department, or the offices of a particular fund, to ask if the successful applicants have been notified already?
  6. Hi everyone. So with quarantine going strong, I was wondering, how about sharing some historical film/series recommendations? Either fiction or nonfiction are welcome. (sorry I am not absolutely sure about the English terms)
  7. I am an international student, also waiting for news regarding funding... About a week ago I was notified that due to COVID-19 decisions about college placement and funding might be delayed. I want to go there so bad, but without funding it would be impossible.
  8. Thank you so much! I am currently in the finishing stages of my masters and looking into PhD programs.
  9. Congrats, that's amazing!
  10. Hi everyone, I have just received the wonderful news that I got into the PhD program at Oxford, and am now anxiously waiting to hear about funding. I was wondering if anyone who has applied to the History department had heard anything from Ertegun or other scholarships open to international students.
  11. Thank you! I can't believe they pulled such an offer, what a disappointment... Indeed I am aware that my chances are slim. I am not an American, so American sourced of funding are irrelevant, but I am scouring the net for any relevant scholarships. I applied to the Ertegun scholarship.
  12. Congrats to you too! I am beyond excited. Oxford is my first choice, I really hope to get funding. I have just spoken to a friend who studies at Cambridge and she definitely thinks it's a good idea to write to them, so I've just sent an email.
  13. I just got notified that I've been accepted to Oxford. I am so excited. Fingers crossed for funding... I was wondering, is it common practice to email your potential supervisor to thank them for their support and/or let them know whether you plan to accept the offer?
  14. So if I haven't been contacted so far, I guess it's bad news 😕

    Hi! I got accepted to UCL and I'm trying to get a picture of the living costs in London to understand if I would be able to afford it. I'm an international student and don't know the city at all so it's all quite overwhelming. Firstly, housing: how much would you estimate that I would have to pay for a studio apartment in a neighbourhood that is nice for a couple of women to live in (which for us means somewhere where it isn't completely dead at night, it is queer friendly and the crime rates are relatively ok)? Also which neighbourhoods would you recommend we look at? Then, other c
