    I got an email from Anna Fox this morning informing me I won't be considered for AHRC/Cambridge Trusts funding (for MPhil in English). I've emailed back to ask whether this also rules out college funding. Will post an update when I hear back. Has anyone else heard?

    Update: I've just had another email to say I will still be considered for college funding, so don't lose hope if you get the same email.
    Hi! I'm also a prospective English MPhil student at St. John's (American Lit), and I received the same email today, unfortunately. Fingers crossed St. John's is feeling generous.

    No word on my supervisor yet (MPhil). I think ours takes a little longer.
    Hi! On self service when I click on "print certificate of offer" it had my supervisor listed already! Not sure if this is the same for everyone as I put this supervisor down in my application and contacted them before but it's worth checking.

    Mine isn’t on there! I did specify a preferred supervisor, but he’s the head of the dpmt so it’s unlikely lol.

    It means the Graduate Admissions Office is looking over your documents and you should expect an offer soon!

    Yay, it worked for me too! I listed two potential supervisors on my application, so it's really good to see who they allocated (one of my pathway's course organisers!) Thank you Gradgrrrl for the tip!!

    Of course ya'll! I only noticed it myself because I had to use the certificate to prove admission for an external funding source.

    How long has it taken people to hear back from colleges? I'm quite anxious about funding deadlines.

    do we have to accept our offer or do anything else in the self-service portal for the college assignment process to start? or does it just start automatically?

    It stars automatically! I was worried about that too since I have some conditions that might take some time to fulfill but I ended up getting an offer from St. John's about 3 and a half weeks after my offer from the university (before I accepted my offer).

    Was that one of your two preferences or was it allocated? Trying to gauge time scales, also would be a great allocation!
