MA/MPhil and PhD English Applicants 2021Watch
Need more help on going postgrad?
The worst part is that I need funding to go, so even if I do get in I’ll most likely have to wait until March-Apr to hear back from funding. An offer would mean nothing without funding.
Soooooooo muchhhhhhh waittinnnggggg and uncertaintyyyyyyy
Seems like they are getting PhD admissions sorted first before us Masters
Got an email from the dept secretary earlier today asking urgently whether I had applied for AHRC from another OOC uni because Cambridge could consider me if not (PhD applicant) - I've applied through Oxford though so I couldn't. Interpreting this as a good sign as she said "we can put you forward for other funding" - anyone any insights?? My application still says "submitted" in the portal
If they were to get back to you in March (which seems to be the reasonable worst-case scenario) would that leave you enough time? but I still have to hand in my Master's Thesis, so I won't have much time to plan
Though saying that, sounds like we should be hearing back within 2-3 weeks
It won't mean anything, don't worry. I'm pretty sure everyone in English goes there, even if they don't update some of our portals.
Hopefully we'll have some decisions soon.
I know last year each MPhil strand found out their application outcome at slightly different times, meaning that they deal with each strand separately (although could be wrong ofc!)
I applied to American Lit and still under department review.
