Gah, I wish universities would update their websites for 2010 entry funding :banghead:
^ This!

It's so frustrating!

E-mail the department in question and ask about their 2010 funding. That's what I did with Goldsmiths. Good thing really, otherwise I'd be faffing around with their paper application when I can't afford to go there :rolleyes:

Ah yes, did this yesterday! But still waiting to hear back from them (UCL). I'll give them a few more days though, I've got enough to be getting on with in the mean time with the rest of the application!

Hope you hear from them soon Goldsmiths were quite quick but I was waiting about 2 weeks with Liverpool :eek:

I don't realy understand all the funding malarky. I'm just going to apply to where I want to go and deal with the funding issue later.

Did Goldsmiths tell you anything helpful? I get a sense of dread every time I think about funding :gasp:

Funding is seriously malarkey. Took me aaaaaaaaaages to actually understand it all and quite a few unis are annoying vague about the whole thing

I would not advise this :no: you could end up with a bunch of acceptances with places you can't afford to go, while there are funded places staring you in the face.

Why won't you get funding?
I'd rather be at a university that was 'quite good' rather than 'very good' if it meant that I got to complete my degree rather than dropping out halfway through due to brain-scrunching penury.
Edit: Sorry, I was in a really mood when I wrote this.

Because of my **** degree.
I just really want to stay at Reading for my PhD. I don't want to go anywhere else.

I wouldn't give up hope. I had a look at your university's page on funding and there's a few studentships you can apply for.

The University Postgraduate Research Studentship (the one at the end) looks particularly interesting

Oh I'm going to apply for everything I can find, I just don't think I'll get it. If I'm a warden in fresher's halls I get free accommodation (inclusive of bills) so I'm going to look into how to apply for that, as that would take out a great deal of the problems.

Are you concerned about your marks?

If you're on track for/have a 2:1 or a first, you should be okay

I already have a degree, I'm doing a masters. But no, my undergrad marks were rubbish for reasons beyond my control.

Don't give up just yet - my BA marks arn't earth shattering and I'm still applying for funding (mitigating circumstances over here too)

My first year marks are appalling but I'm still applying for funding. My tutor said he'd write about how my marks don't reflect my potential, blah blah (dunno whether he actually wrote that or not!), so hopefully I might get some kinda funding. Am sure you'd be in a better position having extenuating circumstances and having already got onto a Masters course :yes:

Thanks. I'm applying to some places abroad which are ridiculously competitive but have full funding, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed
