    Secondary physics.

    I put Trinity/Johns as my choices but I'm waiting to hear (and unlikely to get them, more likely to be put into Homerton.)

    What about you guys?
    Waiting on St. John's/Christ's Cool, I hear they have quite hefty grants for that too!

    Less than a week!! I got my offer on UK Tuesday morning last week, and saw I'd been accepted into Queens UK Monday morning this week.Everyone: what sort of accom are you going to go for? College or private? I'm thinking I'll go for Owlstone Croft, the postgrad hostel that Queens' has!
    Ooh nice and speedy - sounds good!

    Ideally, college accommodation - it's quite subsidised at St. John's! I'm going to be going as part of a couple, and they have lots of couples units. There is one flat that looks out onto Jesus Green that's really nice... Getting ahead of myself here!

    I just made one! This is the address: https://www.facebook.com/groups/postgraduates2016/

    I think that in order to keep it strictly offer holders, we should require a screencap of an individuals offer to ensure the security of the people in the group. Or maybe the confirmation of their TSR name? We don't want random creeps on there! xD

    It's been a week since my offer and I still haven't heard. Some people on the main thread have said it could take a few weeks!

    It only took about about two days for me, but I think that's mainly because I'm currently an UG here so they already know me (and have invested in me a fair bit).

    I got my offer today for a funded PhD in Biosciences :]

    So where do postgrads tend to live? I come from a uni where only 1st years live on campus, and I'm settled in a flat with my partner currently.

    Depends entirely on the college. At Jesus (where I'll be going), the majority of flats are nearby on the streets around campus.

    I'm glad this thread has been bumped! With offers now starting to come in on a large scale, I'd expect most of the discussion to take place on here!

    Got my offer 12 days ago, for a CPGS in Law, and was accepted at Corpus Christi yesterday. I chose a little bit in a rush (I discovered about the deadline on December 1st ...), but I am glad to see this is a small college, which seems to be very friendly. Anyone else there?

    Hope to see you in October.

    Congrats! Corpus grad accommodation is great, especially for Law since that's at the Sidgwick site.
