  1. Manana

    London, England

    Thank you so much!
  2. In my first round of applications I applied to US universities as well for the same reason (also more potential advisors there). I was rejected from all of them. Then the second time around I considered applying again but due to Covid most of the programs I was interested in either didn't admit or admit an even tinier number of new doctoral students so I decided not to go for it.
  3. From my understanding the training is indeed more comprehensive in US programs. On the other hand, I am now 33, so starting kinda late, and the US programs are much longer, so that is also a concern considering how ageist the job market (not the academic one in particular, just in general) is.
  4. So, I seem to be going into my third round of applications. Yeesh. While I have gotten into programs I am very interested in both in my first and second rounds (Oxford, UCL, European University Institute), I have not received funding so far and at this point it's probably not happening. I think next year I will try US programs as well, if admissions will open.
  5. Thank you! I have written to them now. Here's hoping we will be classmates this fall
  6. Thanks for letting us know. I really trie to keep my hopes down but this is still so disappointing. Anyone heard news regarding AHRC funding?
  7. Also can I just vent- I have been accepted to three programs but don't have news about funding from either. I thought the second time around would be easier because I have the experience and much lower expectations, but I still find myself extremely anxious and having a hard time dealing with so much uncertainty. Especially as going to any of these programs means moving to a foreign country (and continent) so it's... a bit of a big thing to find out last minute.
  8. So in a bit of a delayed reaction I have realized maybe I should reply to this email? I mean they didn't ask for a reply for me but maybe it's the proper thing to do? Would appreciate any advice on that. I get so confused when it gets to email etiquette sometimes, especially in other cultures.
  9. I was just waitlisted by EUI. Actually received a bit of a weird, convuluted email, saying tat I had been accepted but due to the low amount of international student grants I had been placed on the reserve list. So essentially waitlisted
  10. Hey everyone, from what's happening in the results board I see that other departments have sent rejections and acceptances but nothing in the History department. Nervously waiting for news here, anyone else?
  11. I assume you have already been notified, but anyway, from what I've heard, being interviewd for Ox-related funding means you have been accepted and shortlisted for funding by your department, which means they have been very impressed with your application. Well done!!
  12. Thank you! I have indeed asked for the parameters, was answered kindly. It was basically a 15 minute conversation. Not really sure how it went, I forgot a ton of words but managed to keep up with the conversation. I'm supposed to be notified soon if I had been accepted to the program, and I heard that they sometimes actually give feedback if you hadn't been accepted, we'll see.
  13. Hiya I also received my DPhil offer very late this year compared to last year (which was March 6th). Fingers crossed this time I get funding, because otherwise I will have to give up the dream once again. Hope to be classmates this fall!
  14. I mean I think so, it was a personalized email. So weird. I'm not sure about asking them, I don't want to seem disrespectful or anything like that, but it is so weird and makes me really nervous
  15. No I haven't. From what people are saying at thestudentroom and from the results board here, it seems like most applicants haven't been contacted yet.
