swantje, as yours is a 1+3 award, i'm not sure about the criteria - but they will be along the lines of: your MSc course (the 1+ bit) being accredited by the ESRC; your supervisor fulfilling all necessary criteria, like, if he/she is new to supervising, the school would have to provide a second supervisor with more experience to you... things like that.
are you going to live in students' residences?
My 1+ bit is going to be a MRes course. Hopefully I'm going to be living in students' residences (cheaper!), I've just applied for a place this week. I'm still waiting for the uni to confirm my registration as a student though, checking my post every day!
It's going to be very new for me in England, I'm English but I've only studied abroad till now and I don't know much about the English uni system. I never expected to do a PhD in England, I applied for four PhD-positions in the Netherlands and England and got lucky with the first interview and had to go find out what this ESRC 1+3 thingy was. I applied for an open studentship and then they offered me the quota studentship. I don't really want to ask my supervisor in England too many questions or he'll think I'm a total moron for not knowing all the obvious stuff all the "proper" English students know.
