Officially an MPhil/PhD student!

I still can’t believe that I am writing this, but a few minutes ago I accepted my unconditional offer to study for my MPhil/PhD at the School of Advanced Study, University of London!

I did it! I actually got in!  

My PhD interview with Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex and my future supervisor Dr Joseph Ford was only yesterday – less than 24 hours ago. I didn’t expect to hear back until the end of August, but I am so relieved that I made it. From the end of September, I will be studying at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, part-time and by distance learning. 

I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life. I just wish my grandparents could have seen me become the first PhD student in my family.
