Re: 2020 - Transitioning to the doctorate in Sept

Hi, This is a very important topic and I also have mixed feelings. Initially, I was planning to buy a house with my partner close to my course. Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances looks like I will be moving alone as my partner cannot resign from his job (been living together for 8 year...

Re: Disappointment and rejection 2020 megathread

When I think about my journey I think I had it easy.... I managed to secure a place on Doctorate this year, and this was my first application, but thinking about it more, I had to go through a few challenges... 2009 - moved to the UK without knowing any English. Went straight into year 11 and as you...

Exeter 2020

Hi everyone, I have created this topic as it would be great to hear from everyone who is planning to accept the offer at the Exeter University. I will be moving from East Midlands, therefore it would be helpful to hear from others about their living plans and arragments. Anyone else based in Somerse...

Re: What experience did you have when you got on training?

I'm so excited to be writing this post. I hope it shows that you don't have to have an amazing start to be able to get a place. I have applied once, had two interviews; one resulted in an offer and the other resulted in reserve for offer. Education: I have moved to the UK in 2009 and went straight i...

Re: Reserve list for places 2020

Hey, I am on the reserve list for Manchester, just like UEA we don't know which place. I find this very difficult as we don't get feedback either, as apparently our performance was good enough, but then it wasn't good enough to be offered a place; therefore, I would like to know what I should work o...

Re: Video Interviews

Like you, I spent days upset but I got some good news 3 days after that pulled me right out. The good news is now causing major conflict re career direction. I was offered an ESRC funded PhD with Essex Uni in Chronic Illness which is what I was hoping to specialise in after clinical. However, it is...

Re: Video Interviews

I interviewed last Tuesday and I had similar experiences. I had been feeling unwell the night before but felt too late to reschedule. I actually became anxious due to being unwell and unable to hear the questions or respond appropriatly. Got myself into an unhelpful cycle that I was unable to get o...

Re: Video Interviews

You never know it could be advantageous for you! Reflecting back (I had my interview on Monday, so I gave it some time for my emotions to calm down) I believe that the online interview wasn't a great experience. I let the anxiety take over and I wasn't able to calm myself quick enough. I found it c...
