Hi !

I had applied to two universities for the January funding deadline and didn’t make it for primary care and population health interviews for PhD.

I am an overseas student, currently in the United States. I was thinking if it makes sense to apply contact potential supervisors in February for PhDs starting in October 2020. Am I late ?
I know that main Oxbridge funding deadlines have passed.

Is there still some hope to receive an offer at this point if I apply ? I am fine with partial funding as well. Not very particular about funding.
I am interested in applying to University College London and University of Edinburgh.

Are there any popular scholarships that would still be open ?

Any insights or suggestions would be really helpful.

Thanks.

Yes you are already late for October 2020, but yes I would still contact supervisors. If you dont do this you'll get no where.

If you only need partial funding mention this in the email as this makes it significantly easier to get onto a program depending exactly how much you mean by partial funding...

The best scholarships are the ones the supervisor recommends as it is a familiar path for them, and one you can be confident is common for your field.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, I understand the importance of contacting the supervisors before applying.
I did so for my two previous applications and included their feedback in the research proposal. However, I was disappointed that I still did not get an interview shortlist.

I am going to anyway reach out to other professors now since there is time crunch.
Thanks for your advice, gives me hope. I guess there is no harm in trying again.
