Thank you all. Very informative. For people like me, these answers are a sort of blessings.
For few they mention as admissions accepted all round the year. But they seem to have huge applications too.
Does anyone have idea about women association of engineers and scientists?? How can I get in touch with them??

Thank you for the information!!Ya, I am applying for fully funded projects, as I am a non-EU student.My background is Mechanical Engineering. Funding myselves is not possible for me! That is the reason I am worried!! Number of funded PhDs for non EUs are less and on top of that lots of competition!!
Discretion will be the next stage I believe, but am not sure. Once they shortlist us, then we might need to make this based on the project they are funding for!! Am I correct??
Also, I am working for a research project currently for a UK based company!! If I can get some kind of recommendation letter, will I have better opportunities in getting an admission?? Like a sort of weightage!!

Your PhD is quiet inspiring. May I know which country you have achieved your PhD from??
I am trying to get my admission into PhD, but looks very tough for an international student to get it with funding, I have relocated to UK recently! Kind of confused!! I see very low number of admissions will be posted on FindaPhd.com for non-EU students and a huge competition!!
Six months back I just applied for 4 openings in and around London with all the documents, except IELTS score. I did not give my IELTS by then. It was very disappointing that I heard back only from one supervisor saying his project was for only EU students and if at all I can self fund he will be looking into it! (But website was stating for international) . Rest of them did not reply back!!

Now, I want to try seriously. Not understanding, in which way I have to approach other than the website "FindaPhd.com"

Oh thanks, That is very informative and makes sense!!
I am trying to apply from "FindaPhd.com" website. They ask for transcripts, CV,reference letters and IELTS score to attach along with the application. They are'nt asking for Research proposal in the required documents. So, should I still include at this stage of application my research proposal also and send?? Or once I receive a reply, we need to send?? I don't have much idea!!

Hi,
As am trying to apply for a PhD, got to know one need a research proposal ready.
My question is that the research proposal I have, doesnt match with all kinds of projects that am applying for!!
So for every other project should I change the proposal??
If I send the same proposal the supervisor might think that my interest is on some other topic and not his and reject the application!!
Like my proposal is related to material science, but I infact am applying for manufacturing and design projects as well. My masters degree is Computer aided design and manufacturing. Any of the topics will be a weightage for me considering my CV!
Please suugest!!!

Hi Monika,
I just saw your post. 60% of the women around you have failed in some or the other kind, but not all have given up.
My case, I was a brilliant student, always used to dream high. I studied well and coped up for the best university. But did not get placed there, the most depressing situation. I did not give up. Tried, tried and tried and got placed on the last day of my university, not in a big MNC but a small startup. they offered me very less pay. I wanted to fly for further studies, my parents said no. I stopped there, took up my job as the profession God wanted me in. I shined there, got the first promotion. My manage was a women hater. He used to make me work till night 11pm. My parents started worrying and I have to resign. Still, attended interviews, got a job in a little big firm, very happy with pay and life. Then there came recession. my team was 70, was reduced to 7. I was not laid off. It was my marriage, I had to leave the job, mean while I got one as a Plant engineer in a central Government firm, but my husband lives in USA, worked for 6 months and left to US as dependent. No work permit, a break of 2.6 years. Joined back in the same field, but things are different now. I had a kid who is 1.6 yrs old. Could not manage work pressure and take care of my baby. Took long leave, by Gods will and my husbands encouragement, took Master' and excelled it, received a Gold Medal. Got offers from colleges, took up one, started teaching and found myself passionate about research, university encouraged too. I did a bit research, (drop in an ocean). Published my work in reputed journals.My husband has shifted to UK. Again Break, (PhD) my passion, not easy. So, freelancing, research assistance, PhD trials, this way I am struggling now.
Don't give up dear!
Where there is a will, there is a way!! Good luck!!! Trust in God, he shows you the way. I believe this!! Your efforts and confidence in yourselves are more than necessary. Dont bother about people!! all five fingers are not of same length!!

Hi,
I have sent a mail to one of the research supervisors in the imperial university, got the mail id from the website. I have gonr through the work and out of interest I posted him anf projected my willingness. I mentioned that "it would be my pleasure to work voluntarily as well" , but no reply. I sent a reminder mail two days back after waiting for a month. Am afraid, if still there's no reply, Can I go fot a third mail? And Can I ask if he could refer me to someother supervisor if in case he has no research projects going on currently? Will it look unfair? The other supervisor' work also was related to the same field from same university has astonishing publications, but I did not post a mail to him, thinking if that' not the correct way of approach to request parallely!
Please give your suggestions! Your valuable advices are welcome and it will be of great help!

Oh Okay. Thank you... In the websites, head of the department' mail IDs are generally given, and the research works going on in his department are displayed. But the details of the supervisors who have undertaken those research works are not being shown.
In such cases, Should I write/e-mail to Head of the Department???

Very True, I echo with the earlier reply. As an International student, better to limit the applications only for funding ones. Though number of funded PhD' are quiet few compared to the EU students, it takes time to find one. But there is no other option than waiting.
Mean while go with some research internships which may help you find supervisors who can get some funding if they like your work. I am also an International student and posted few applications through FindaPhD.com. Got a reply, and waiting for few.
Good Luck!!!

Hi,
I am an International student looking forward for a PhD. and have posted few applications too. As the competition is very high for international people to get a PhD with funding, I wanted to go ahead with some research assistance/ internship/research fellowship under any of the supervisors. Hoping that, this might help me find a PhD in the future.I have teaching and Industrial experience with a 1 1/2 yrs exposure as a research fellow in India while pursuing my Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering, which may fetch a bit of advantage.
Recently I moved to UK as a dependent. I am not knowing the sources of how to apply, whom to contact, whether to go directly to some university and speak to the supervisors etc.
If I get any of the supervisors mail id from University websites, Can I e-mail that particular supervisor if I could join as a research intern? Will that be taken negatively by them?
Not able to decide the mode of communication, I happened to post a request if anyone could suggest your opinions as you may be knowing quiet better.

Yes, because of your valuable suggestion my mind started thinking in a different angle. Am Trying for Ph.D. really hard. Hoping to get it atleast an year down the line. Parallely, will keep up with research under a supervisor or will step into academics so as to develop few contacts. Thank you so much.
