Hello everyone, this is the first time I ask a question in the student room, feeling excited!!xxx

I have made my application to Cambridge PhD in Engineering last week on the online portal, and now my status of application is "under review by department". Does anyone have previous experience about how long will it take to next stage?

Thanks very much in advance! : )

I applied too, for the PhD in Engineering, last month. What subject did you apply to (any chance that it was advanced machine learning)?

I applied for an MPhil within the same department, not really the same route our applications are taking but close enough. Mine's been under review by department since the 14th Nov. Not really that long but the wait is killing me hah.

Hey,

Finally someone who applied for this course ! I had applied around the same time, and there has been no progress since then. Did you contact your prospective supervisor before applying?
Also, If you don’t mind sharing, what research group did you apply for?

Congratulations guys!

Did you guys have any sort of communication with your prospective supervisors before applying? What was the interview process like, if you don't mind sharing!

Yes, He interviewed me twice. But I suppose this is different with different supervisors.

I didn't contact supervisors prior to submitting my application, but one of my proposed supervisors I listed in my application reached out to me mid December to schedule an interview. It was very casual, just giving me some background on his group, asking about my experience, and then discussing a potential project together
