    Yes, go ahead for other funding. Actually I've applied three scholarship funding in the university, how much have you applied?
    I applied for only one scholarship provided by the university. I will apply for another one granted by the Italian institution for higher education.

    I got email from the UK/EU scholarship stating that I am unsucessful. I think you may soon get the notification from that scholarship.
    Same here I haven't heard from the Law Faculty about their specific scholarships yet though...has anyone else heard, should I take silence as a rejection for those too?

    Looks like I'll be forced to self-fund if I pass my undergrad...

    When is your TOEFL exam? Omg, I took mine in January and now every single time I hear about this exam I feel like throwing up. I still don't understand why I didn't choose IELTS to take : |

    My exam is in two weeks, on June 15th. When I saw the structure of Toefl, I thought the same thing. But I also took the preparatory course during the winter, so I hope to be at least decently prepared.

    Hello! I don't post often on TSR, I'm rather shy, but I've been watching this thread for a bit.

    Has anyone applied to PhD entry starting in January? I was wondering if it takes longer for a decision to be made on applications since there's no rush to the September start date. Has anyone heard back yet, and if so, how long did it take?

    I'm an applicant for PhD study in art design so that's technically through the Edinburgh College of Art, but I think the system is quite the same now since the merger. I submitted my application at the end of May and didn't hear a peep out of admissions until 2 days ago (they asked me for an interim transcript). My cousin applied in April for September masters entry and had an offer within 3 weeks. They also asked her for an interim transcript about 2 days before sending the offer. So I'm crossing my fingers and hoping their sudden contact is a good sign.

    In the end, I chose Edinburgh. Yesterday evening I accepted the offer they made me about a month ago and I'm very happy, actually! See you in Sept!

    Hi Guys

    Don't forget there's a Postgrad Facebook group now for 2012/2013 students.

    Hi everyone,

    I think I have the same problem that any international/European student has already had. I need to send my Toefl result to the University of Edinburgh, specifically the School of Law.
    I already accepted the conditional offer the University made.

    On the official website they say:

    "If you are about to take a TOEFL test, you should chose the College as one of your "Designated Institutions" using the DI number 3760. This will enable us to verify your test certificate, which you should scan and upload with your application through the on-line application system.
    If you have already taken your test, then please upload a scanned copy of your test certificate."

    I already took the Toefl test but I didn't choose to send the results directly to the School because I didn't know that I was supposed to do in that way. Now, I can send the results through the ETS website anyway, but I need to pay 16$. In addition, I just got the results (I took the test on June 15th) and I suppose that the paper copy of my results won't be arriving before one month.

    How can I do? In your opinion, is it compulsory to send the scanned copy of the results?

    I'm doing the MSc in Environmental Sustainability this September.

    I'd applied for both the UK/EU scholarship and the Carnegie Trust, but was unsuccessful with both of them. I'd also applied to a Dutch fund which provides scholarships for Dutch nationals studying abroad and they are giving me 4000 euros, so that's my rent covered for the whole year .

    do most of you try to get private accommodation? I found it quite difficult to find private accommodation when you're not in Edinburgh atm and have no way of visiting before September...

    I'm a European PG student and I'm looking for sharing a private flat because it is seems that I have no chance to get an university accommodation.
    I'll be in Edinburgh the first week of September and, as you said, I would like to check the places in person before signing a contract. Nonetheless, I'm trying to set appointments already and there are some websites which are useful. Did you try Gumtree, for example?

    Yeah, I did. However, most wanted to meet in person... I've been told all the good rooms will be gone by the beginning of term so I decided to go with a room from a private landlord who 'specializes' in postgraduate accommodation for EU students. I actually found it through StudentPad...
    This way I already have a room when I get there and don't have to 'waste' precious time at the beginning of the semester. Besides, I am somewhat of a control-freak and not having a room has made me very uneasy; I already saw myself hopping from hostel to hostel for three weeks, which really wasn't a happy thought for me

    Good luck to you!
