    Good afternoon,

    I am currently finishing my MA in Czech Republic and I will be applying soon to the PhD programme at the UCL's SSEES, division of Politics & Sociology.

    Does anybody know what is roughly the acceptance rate for the programme? Is it very competitive? I have, relatively average grade from the BA (although high final and thesis grades). Might this lower my chances significantly? However, my grades from MA programme are the highest possible.

    I have, also, consulted my proposal with a member of staff and his reply was very enthusiastic (he said he likes it and would be interested in supervising me). Does this actually mean anything?

    Thank you for answers!
    You probably would get more replies if you posted this in the postgrad applications forum. It might also be worth asking Ivanka . The email does mean something, I think your chances are pretty good - but frankly getting in isn't the hard bit, getting funding is.
Do you like carrot cake?
