    Hi,
    I am currently looking to start a PhD next September/October and I am unsure which institution to go for. I currently have an offer from Cambridge and I am hoping to soon receive an offer from KCL. My prospective supervisor from KCL has so far been extremely helpful and I am sure that I would receive excellent supervision from her. My prospective supervisor from Cambridge also seems very good, but I suspect I might receive more time and attention from the KCL prospective supervisor. The other issue is funding. It is still a it early to know about funding, although I sense, given the support of the KCL supervisor, that I might stand a good chance of winning AHRC funding from KCL. I sense, however, that it might be harder to win funding from Cambridge, especially AHRC funding, and that if I do it is more likely to be partial funding from a college. My question is firstly where do you think I should go and secondly if I get full funding from KCL should I choose it over partial funding from Cambridge? Also what if I did, although the chances are possibly quite slim, get full funding from both universities? Where should I go? It is a really hard decision, and I sense that which ever I chose I might end up feeling haunted by the possibilities of the other - obviously to decline an offer from Cambridge would be a huge decision! Any advise would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Full funding is better. Normally an AHRC scholarship is always full (unless you're from the EU).
