    Oh, I'm sorry if it was unnecessary to start a new thread but I was hoping to get some more specific info, last year it worked out quite well for these guys https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5105166

    Not yet, just polishing the application probably will do by next week or so. Just scared that if they do send an invitation to an interview it will be during my exam period wbu

    Yes that was my fear but I had to send it off before the funding deadline. My application went straight into "under review by department" but it's been like that since 14th Nov. Judging by the thread from last year, the department takes its time. May I just ask which uni are you at atm? My biggest fear is the fact that my uni (University of Dundee) arguably doesn't really have such great reputation (well, not as great as Cambridge anyway). I wonder how much of a factor that is.

    I study Mechanical Engineering at University of Manchester, luckily I have some funding sorted from previous internships so I could just cover the tuition and rent. From what i know the uni you attend doesnt have an impact at all. More your grades and everythinge else. But yea from last year's thread I realised u wont get a reply before like mid Jan (which i think might be an interview). So might just work on it a bit more, no rush. good luck

    Yeah I've had two internships that were both renewables-related and another research project I am doing atm (my honours project) for a company in London also energy-related. My grades are a low 1st for now. I'm hoping to pick this up in fourth year, it's looking good so far. You? What was your internship about?

    Your application seems quite good to be honest! My previous internships are nothing renewables related to be fair. But ive published a paper previously and my honours project is also energy related. My grades are roughly the same around 76%. So hopefully we'll see. hopefully it works out for both.

    I haven't applied anywhere else to be honest. One reason is that I would really like to take this particular course but another reason is that I have no time for more applying lol
