Re: Deferring place due to pregnancy? Can anyone help?!

One of the trainees on my cohort was in a similar situation and was advised to start the course and go on maternity leave as if funding changed she would have her place guaranteed.

That said from all accounts the course were brilliant with it all but this didn't relate to me.

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Congratulations to all those who have interviews!

It's such a long old process that is really draining that whatever your account celebrate getting this far.

For any minority applicants this may be of interest - viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21021

Re: Missing question

I know last year one question was hidden until you had put something in every box be it a letter or a number.

There was also a question that was only for self funding applicants and it sounds similar to the one you mention?
