    Hi guys,
    I've had this holiday planned for about 2 years. It's my brother's wedding in Japan, and I've just found out it'll fall right smack in the middle of my registration, enrolment, and induction days for the PhD I'm starting in October. Obviously I'll speak to the uni on Monday to see if it'll cause any issue, but do you think off hand that it could? Just hoping to have my mind put at ease over the weekend .

    I'm just paranoid about losing this funding at the last hurdle, even though there's absolutely nothing I can do about the holiday, and it's just a case of bad timing.

    Out of interest - are you going to LSE?

    It should not be a major problem - send a letter to your programme director explaining the situation and they will understand.

    The first thing you need to do is stop calling it a holiday - saying you have to go out to Japan for your brother's wedding will get much more understanding that the word holiday!
