Cambridge PhD Programme

It is true that interviews are not always required. However, sometimes a supervisor wants to get more information about you and your project before they commit 3-4 years of their life in supervising you. The mere fact that your application was sent to a supervisor already is proof that admissions feels that you pass all the requirements of admission and is now at the point of marketing you to supervisors to supervise you.


Hi! Are you going to UCL? I received an offer from UCL but was waitinglisted for the faculty funding.


Congrats on your acceptance to UCL, jjjxxx!


Thank you, joeyman365!!

Congrats! That's an excellent sign.[/quote]

I'm not so sure. I was under the impression that it was not necessarily a mandatory part of the process. I guess we'll see if anyone else is required to interview.[/quote]

Yes. It's all about my research proposal and it was quite relaxed.
The professor at UCL is the one I genuinely wish to follow but I'm struggling with the funding

I agree!

I was on the student room, and it appears that over the last few days the first PhD offers for other courses started trickling out. So the funding processes etc behind the scenes must be finished and faculties must be nearly in a position to send out offers.

Best of luck everyone!

Does anyone know how much time we have to confirm is we receive an offer from Cambridge? Any sense of how this might compare to other universities?

No news on my end. However, I see the Cambridge Trust has starting making awards. So maybe they're going to send out offers at the same time as funding decisions?

I really don't know. I'm just looking for an explanation for the delay! Every other faculty seems to give out offers a few days after the interview and mine was weeks ago now. I'm not sure if it could be bad news.

There is a Degree Committee meeting on Thursday. Maybe results will be released after that...

I don't think the fact that we haven't heard anything yet is negative.

A person posted on the results section of the student room website that he interviewed for the PhD in law and was told orally on the phone that he would be made an offer and he stated that he's waiting for BOGS.

Hopefully we hear something soon as the waiting is agonising.

Where did you hear that trust scholarships are beginning to be issued?

I don't know but I am not anticipating an offer from my dear alumni Cambridge. LOL

I anticipate a rejection soon, seeing as I was not interviewed yet among other reasons.

The PHD class is usually quite small, just a few tens, which makes competition quite tight and the Faculty has to review the applications and reject a number of people.

May the odds be in your favor.

Looking at the first awardee of a Trust scholarship and the name sounds familiar. He is quite an accomplished chap! From undergraduate to PHD.

Best of luck to you as I'm sure we'll be hearing relatively soon!

Also, just noticed that I referenced the wrong website in my last post. Rather, the I should have referenced the results section of the grad cafe website:
