I am also applying for PhD's at the moment so havent got much experience but I suppose you just gonna have to try and apply. Make sure you have great cover letter etc.
Or maybe you could do another MSc and ace it but who has money for that?

Is this ok?

Dear Dr...

I am a final year Biochemistry undergraduate at the University of XXX and the reason I am contacting you is because the PhD programme vacancy you are currently advertising matches my skills and academic interests. I have familiarised myself with your work and I would appreciate it if you could tell me more about your proposed project and the methods that will be used.

I have attached my CV so that you can assess my suitability for this PhD project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely

There is PhD project I would be interested in. Email address of the supervisor is supplied to answer questions. There are no publications listed, no methodology used. I obviously looked at their lab page but still dont know what methods will be used.
I want to contact the supervisor but dont want to look silly. Can I email him and ask him about more info about the project? Do I mention I have looked on his website?
I would attach my CV and introduce myself.
Is this something that should be done or are they not expecting to be contacted?
Thanks guys:)

Hi guys

So I am applying for PhD and believe the Wellcome Trust one would be great for me. I like the fact you can try out few research groups and make an informed choice.
Is anybody doing this PhD?Do you have any tips for my cover letter/writing application? When they ask me about my career aspiration how much into future should I go? Is it enough to say I want to stay in academia or should I mention I want to eventually have my independent research group and supervise PhD students?
Do I keep it short and brief? How do I describe my research experience? Very brief?

If any of you (not explicitly WT students) could help I would be most grateful.

Why dont you try to get pregnant now and if it happens, you can take a break and see if you want to come back or not? Maybe it will happen in the write up time, maybe later. I think you can do both at the moment and see how the situation goes? That way you can do both at the moment.

Hi.
I have child and I am glad I do. It changes you forever.
It was the best choice for me but it isn’t for everybody. I just refused to live my life for a CV but definitely feel the pressure from academia you are talking about.

Ian, I think you would be surprised at people without a degree. My husband is a joiner and we get on very well. He is not academically gifted but he is a very intelligent person. You just need to give it a shot:). He likes my exploratory holidays.

Pineapple: Its not embarrassing. Its so much easier to save up for a deposit when there is two of you.
