    Hi guys,

    I am currently applying for a PhD and have reached the stage where I have submitted my preliminary proposal and have letters of support from my prospective supervisors who have agreed to supervise me. All that is left is waiting to hear the outcome from the postgraduate committee. I was wondering what others experiences have been at this stage? Is it now a matter of a formality? What are the chances of rejection at this stage? The topic is an extension on an existing project within the department, and my background and skill set are aligned.

    Thanks in advance! It is such a nerve-wracking process!

    A very important factor is funding. Have you already secured funding? Will the committee decide in case of acceptance to award funding? If funding is secured, more likely it is formalities. If not, there is still a long way to go.

    Totally agree with Eng. If you need funding, it becomes a competitive process – in that a dozen or so people may be applying for say two studentships. All with well written proposals and supervisor support etc.

    It is already a huge achievement to have put the application together and got to this stage. From what you’ve said, it sounds like you have a very good case and so you should make it through to the next round (possibly interview?)

    On the money, if your supervisor is HoD and has to cut 21 million from the department, those are massive cuts. He’s probably looking at major redundancies which will gut research groups. He can’t in those circumstances be seen to favour his own group for funding particularly if objectively as he’s told you, he thinks your project can be done without the funding, when others perhaps cannot. It’s absolutely reasonable of you to decide this isn’t what was offered and walk away, but I think you are being a bit unfair in your assessment of someone who’s probably living through a nightmare right now.

    Ouch that sounds like a bad situation. Though I don’t think it is all your supervisors fault but more the circumstances. Very few PhD projects stays the same as their original with several redrafts/change of focus/panic change, being normal. Again licenses are pain to get but I thought you generally need a research plan/scope to get one which you can’t do until the student starts. So expecting it ready is a big stretch. What I am saying is that those complaints are typical and I wouldn’t blame your supervisor.

    Though if he has to cut 21 million, £3,000 seems trivial to me. If you really need the equipment do the trial with the current stuff and show him the results. If they are bad you might get it but if it is good, you have good data. You would be surprised what old equipment can do if you learn how to use it properly.
