    I've recently interviewed for a studentship, and I was accepted last month. I received a preliminary letter offering me the studentship for the PHD, but have heard nothing from the university since (no information concerning start date, employment contract etc.). It's due to start in October, and I'm wondering if this is usual, or if I should be expecting any other information at all? I've signed and returned the contract regarding the PHD funding, is it possible for them to retract this at a later date? I need information to give my current employers, but am reluctant to ring and hound the university unnecessarily.

    You won't necessarily get an employment contract because you're a student. A funding contract sounds right though. Do you need a visa? If so you need a CAS letter to apply which you should try and get hold of ASAP. If not then you don't really need anything else. Closer the time you'll be sent info about accommodation and enrolment and get in touch with your supervisor to find out what is expected in the first few weeks. Congrats and enjoy your summer...the roller coaster ride is about to begin
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
