I’m an Overseas student who just received a PhD offer at one of the departments in the School of Clinical Medicine. I’m now nervously waiting to hear about my funding status, and the nerves have been compounded by some recent news- I just learnt that my department ranking is 6 out of 15 and that I wouldn’t be one of the Department’s nominations for the Gates scholarships. I’m not too upset about Gates, but I’m super worried that my ranking is not good enough to afford me a chance at any of the Cambridge Trust scholarships as well!
Previous applicants- Did any of you guys find out your departmental rank beforehand? How did you fare with funding? It would be great if you could share your experience as UK/EU/Overseas PhD applicants. Thanks a lot!
How do you think you'll do?
