Hey guys! I applied to MPhil American History on November 6th - still on 'under review by department'. Trying hard to not compulsively refresh the portal
Mphil pol thought, history faculty. I know it's the weekend but still cannot stop checking. I wish they just froze us in some furturistic thing and unfroze only when the result came. Applied Jan7.

Just checked the portal and it's now showing 'awaiting approval by GAO'! (I applied to the MPhil in World History.)

Congratulations!! Super happy for you. GAO is pretty much unofficial acceptance. Just the formalities remain now more or less!

Portal officially moved to "conditional offer made" !! Anyone have any idea how long it takes for the official letter to come through? Or what the MPhil conditions usually are for Americans?

EDIT: Just kidding! Offer email just came through- excited!

Hi everybody! My friend just got a conditional offer for MPhil in Modern European History. We’re both waiting for college allocation now. Applied for Girton and Newnham.

Hi all,

I have been lurking here for quite some time. I just recieved a rejection for a funded History PhD after an interview yesterday. I'm feeling absolutely devastated as I know what they were looking for and believe I do have the experience, but felt under pressure when they told me I was running out of time during the interview that I didn't manage to express this. Good luck to everyone still waiting their results and the fortunate person that got accepted. This was my first and only PhD application so far, so I have gained some valuable experience. I'll likely be back next year!

Thank you so much for posting this. I've been only seeing GAO updates here and it feels like a lot when everyone who applied seems to be getting through. You sound sincere and positive, and it has to be their loss that they could not have you. Interviews can be pretty weird, and even if you are prepared things can go a bit haphazard sometimes. I hope you find a well good funded position soon :-)

Thank you so much for your positive message. This has been a nice community. At least I can stop anxiously refreshing this feed until next time. Haha.

Any other PhD applicants here who have had absolutely no movement with their application? I'm beginning to become rather deflated.
