I was told during the phone interview and then I recieved an email about half an hour after I got off the phone. Again I think it was because there was an approaching deadline for the funding.

I agree with golf pro. I think it could have gone either way. Man U dominated the first half and chelsea the second. Penalty shoot outs can go either way. They did well to get to the final.

It's not too late when I was applying for my masters I applied quite late, actually it was in June for an october start. I still got offers for both courses I applied for and one was with funding. I hope it works out for you.

Sorry I just saw your question about the 2 different research projects. I did two totally different projects for my masters and MSc too the only thing they had in common was that I used molecular Biology techniques. So what I used to do is talk about whichever one was more relevant to the PhD I was applying for and then when I spoke about my practical skills I would say I have a good working knowledge of Molecular Biology techniques xyz and gained form undergraduate and masters project. But I always kept both on my Cv so they would see both but only one in the covering letter. I dont think you really need to explain why you changed area My undergraduate degree and masters were kind of related but I ended up doing totally different projects I never expalined and it seemed to be fine I wasnt asked why at the interviews I went to either.

Hope this helps.

Yea you can but I would try and tie it in with my generic skills which are useful for PhD students. I did 3 months summer work in a lab (technician) at GSK which had nothing to with any of the PhDs I applied for but I said it had given me time management and organisational skills. I dont know what you did for the work experience but if you had to keep records or something I would put it as an example of good record keeping skills alongside any labnote book you kept. Something like that.

Is that helpful?

Hi,
when I write covering letters In the first few sentences I explain (briefly) who I am, where I saw the PhD advertised what Im currently doing and what I want to do in the future.

Then in the next paragraph I explain why I want to do the PhD and try to relate it to a previous project I have done and explain what i would get out of doing it and why at that Particular uni.


Then in the next paragraph I describe my skills which would make me a good applicant.

Then I finnish by saying I hope on looking at my letter and CV they would find me suitable and I hope to hear form them soon.

This kind of thing has worked for PhD applications for me in the past so I just stuck to it.


I hope this helps
