I've become really interested in computational biology over the last two years, and I would like to segue into it somehow after finishing undergrad.

i think everything will be looked at now that the deadline has closed i believe they do it in a big batch rather than choosing as they are submitted!
Anyone else get the email saying that their application has been passed onto the academic assessors?
Best of luck everyone!

last year applicants heard back all day on 26th april (from like 9am to 5pm) so i’m thinking we should hear around the week beginning the 22nd april onwards! Also, a lot of people ended up getting admitted later on when people didn’t accept offers etc so there’s still hope even after this day all the way up until may/june ish!
