Cambridge PhD Programme

Did anyone else here apply to the PhD programme at Cambridge? The website says admissions go out on a rolling basis. If there are a couple of us on here, it would be nice to have a sense of when offers begin to go out :)

Nice to have some company :) My application still says awaiting departmental consideration. If the PhD follows the LLM process, then I believe the next step is under consideration by the degree committee and finally before the Board of Graduate Studies.

I'm eager to find out the results either way. It would be nice to know before some of the other doctoral programme applications are due.

UCL has already interviewed me for the same. I did my LLM at Cambridge and if not for the extremely generous funding at Cambridge, I wouldnt have considered it.

Good to meet you :)

Do you know if Cambridge does interviews? Their website is cryptic in this regard. It says "may" interview, whereas others like Oxford are explicit that they do not.

What didn't you like about Cambridge that makes you only apply because of the generous funding?

It is true that they may interview you. It is not automatic especially where you have been clear in your application about all the things they would likely interview you on.

Cambridge was truly an experience that I will always be grateful for. However, having lived in London, I felt that I wasn't cut out for the feel of Cambridge; it was always about academics in the small town, nothing much to see or experience outside academics and I am not sure I would want to live in that space for 3 full years or even more. But most importantly, I feel that my research would be better supervised elsewhere as Cambridge didn't have expertise in it.

All good reasons. Thanks for your response!

Hi! I've applied for Cambridge and was interviewed by UCL as well. As the potential supervisor at UCL is stronger and more famous than the one in Cambridge, I'm more inclined to go for UCL. Do you think supervisor is more important than the fame of institution?

A PHD is a fragile project and therefore the supervisor is the most central point in it. You must find a place where you will get adequate supervision. It doesn't help to be at Harvard with a clueless supervisor (that is a bit of an exaggeration) when you can be at Bristol with a more experienced and better placed supervisor.

I would therefore choose any school as long as the supervisor was better placed to supervise me.

Awesome! I just checked and mine updated too. From the other thread, it looks like it did for LLM applicants as well.

Not yet. But I was contacted to apply for funding. And my amazing supervisor remains in touch since he is really interested in my research.
