    Oooh nice - guessing your studying econ there? 😉 trying to decide between Warwick and Bristol was a really tough decision for me.

    Nope! I randomly checked my account and seen that I'd been successful. Hopefully should get more details soon since I think we have to select our preferences for departments. Really hope they pay for accommodation as well as I don't fancy commuting from Newcastle every day 😩

    Haha same here, but I was quite anxious about the result though, I checked the account everyday, I heard that they cover your cost for accommodation/transport (not sure at all).

    I felt like my telephone interview had gone quite well but then started getting worried as they took forever to respond

    Fingers crossed they get in touch soon so that we can book accommodation and train tickets as far in advance as possible.

    Are you travelling far for this programme? 🙂

    I'm doing law 😭😭😭😭

    I'm pretty sure they'll reimburse travel but guess we'll have to wait until they send out emails. Are you doing any other internships?

    I have another programme that clashes with EDIP - I told them that I am not available for some of the days and so I am going to be at EDIP for three days and at my other scheme for two days!
