Also, when i was talking to the supervisor via email, they didn't seem very interested in me probably because they already had other strong candidates in in mind. They told me just to make an application for the DPhil program. So i don't understand what's the point of talking to the supervisor before even applying. It's quite unfair and regardless you talk to them or not, you application can be still be rejected.
I agree with you. I have this experience that the potential supervisor showed lots of interests in my research proposal and strongly recommended me to apply, but I got rejected at the end. I think the potential supervisor does not have the 100% power to make the decision of offering someone.

Hey! Haven’t heard anything yet. You? I am guessing that my application has already been rejected by now or is not going any further consideration.

Hi ! Yes it’s so unfair and like you said potential supervisors can’t make final decisions on our application no matter how strong it is. But i am glad i made 2 applications to Oxford anyway even though i will be rejected sooner or later. I wish you all the best with your application.

Me neither. I may have been rejected as well. The interviews were supposed to start today. I am unsure if I should even consider preparing a ppt beforehand.

So my application has definitely been rejected then. Why doing a ppt?

I wanted to be prepared in the off chance I get an invite for the interview. Very daft! But not knowing is very daunting. I thought I had a good chance of getting in as the supervisors were positive about my draft proposal.

I have no idea. I applied for DPhil in population health and someone in the forum received an invite last Friday. l think if we don't hear back anything this week either, it's safe to assume we were not shortlisted. I would love to get feedback from the supervisors though.

That's so messed up. Yeah i am already assuming that my applications are no longer undergoing further considerations and they've been rejected. But I really wanted to get at least an interview for one of the DPhil position i've applied though !

I agree! I work in academia and though I could potentially do a Phd in my department I really wanted to go to Oxford. The advertised project aligned with my interests and the supervisors are experts in the field. I should be receiving a reply for another studentship I had applied for today/tomorrow. However, I am not positive about it anymore. I wonder if I should just try next year...

That's crazy! I hope you feel better about it. Sometimes these things don't click together; it does not reflect you. There's always next year.

Let's see if I get mine too.

Hello, just wondering if anyone applied for the Interdisciplinary Medical Research (MRC Doctoral Training Partnership) i.e. MRC DTP programme at Oxford? Or perhaps if you heard about others being shortlisted for interviews for the programme? I emailed the department and they said they will 'investigate' the matter but have not gotten back to me yet.

Is anyone else still waiting for a decision after submitting for the 13th November deadline, and it's way beyond the 8-10 week turnaround time? And has anyone got any info about why or when we might hear? I ask more broadly because for my department (Anth) several of us have emailed but been given no indication for how much longer but may be or why it's taking so long. however, the delay doesn't seem to just be an Anth thing so wondering if other departments have offered any more insight? Thanks and good luck to everyone!
