Applying for a PhD Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at Cambridge Watch
I really need the advice of those who are currenlty doing Phd in Theoreical and Applied Lingusitics at Cambridge.
I have one master's from the Philippines which the University of Melbourne assessed as "H1 standard Section 1 (Australian Masters equivalent) Master of Arts In English". And I'm now doing my second master's in General and Applied Linguistics at the Australian National University. I've never had a grade below 90 before, and I'm aiming to get an overall HD from ANU in July 2019. I was a Fulbright foreign language assistatnt in the US for a year, and had three years of teaching experience. I've been a Linguistic project manager for more than a year now while doing my full-time studies. The problem is I don't have research publication yet and after university (where I had been awarded leadership and community involvement awards), I'm afraid I didn't have much community involvment but only leadership oppurtinies at work.
Do you advice me to apply for Mphil still (even if I would have two masters by then)? Or will I have a chance at getting accepted as a Phd student? And if ever, what do you recommend me to do/accomplish while I'm still ding my master's here in Austrlia before I apply for 2020 entry. Thank you so much.
Hey there! I was an FLTA myself and I'm from SEA. Very close to the Phils. I'm also intending to apply to Cantab next year. How's the research proposal coming along?
How about you? And which FLTA batch are you in? I'm in Batch 2015.
