I came off the SGSAH reserve list! Utterly delighted and totally shocked. If you were above me, othered, thank you for your wide net approach that got you accepted elsewhere 😆


Congrats!

Congratulations!! That’s amazing news! I’m hoping for the same result for the CHASE reserve😅


Hope you get good Chase news SOON! Do you have an option for internal scholarships?

Thank you! I’ve been told that 2 people from the reserve list have been given offers, so I’m now 1st reserve. But they are only waiting for 3 candidates to respond to their offers so I don’t know what my chances are :frown:
No, unfortunately there are no internal scholarships available for me. Plan B is to start part-time and try again next year.

I've got a co-supervision with another uni, and I found out that not one SGSAH application in that department even got to the reserve list. It's higher ranked (not that I particularly buy into this) than my main uni so I was totally shocked by this. I honestly thought surely at least one person there would have gotten an award.

Amazing! Such great news, congratulations. Love to see the reserve list successes here 😊
Got an offer for a Masters at Cambridge, however funding has been stressing me out immensely. I come from a disadvantaged background, however the application forms I feel did not truly take this into account when I was filling them out. I have received no funding so far, with my chances looking very slim, and the college I was assigned to has zero funding options open to me, in comparison with many others which provide many financial need scholarships/bursaries. My home country also does not continue to provide the funding which I relied on heavily for my undergraduate study, which would make up precisely the difference I require since my masters is abroad. I've been told time and time again I just need to wait and see, but it's just so frustrating, I needed to get it out :frown: Rant over

congrats! 🥳
Anyone on the reserve list this year? It’s insane how hard it is to acquire funding now. Ten-Fifteen years ago it was so much easier to get a PhD.

Did you end up completing this masters?
Birmingham M4C nomination, anyone? I'm gradually losing my mind...
I received notification yesterday that I’ve progressed to the second stage of the WROCAH application process. They say they have around 45 studentships. Does anyone know approximately how many applications reach this second stage?

Usually 30% of applicants get to the interview stage for one of the studentships I applied for there was 500 applicants for 50 projects and only three for each project were invited to interview.
