DPhil at Oxford University Computing Laboratory, Fully Funded!!

在床上讀《飛狐外傳》到最終一回突然打住,想英國現在正是下午,不如起來收個信。結果真的有信,還來兩封,而且一封掉在 Jeremy Gibbons 的專屬信匣內!

時候終於到了。

我一直不太敢面對我只申請一家的事實,特別是看到身邊眾人動輒投四、五家,並經歷整個申請過程的諸般波折之後,其實暗暗有做心理準備,可能得回中研院待一年。如果真的失敗了,下次自然不能這麼托大,連美國的學校都得納入考量。

幸好看來是沒第二次了。

忐忑打開標題為 "Application to Oxford" 的信,火速一看 ─

Dear Mr. Ko,

I am pleased...

是 "I am pleased" 不是 "We regret"!第一步總算是到位了(因為學費生活費還沒著落呢)。緊接著看完:

Dear Mr. Ko,

I am pleased to inform you that we are able to offer you a place to study for the D.Phil in Computer Science at Oxford University Computing Laboratory under the supervision of Jeremy Gibbons.

We are also able to offer you Clarendon funding which will pay your fees at the overseas rate together with a stipend of approximately £13290 per annum for three years.

Will you please confirm that you will be accepting this funded place by Wednesday 24th February at the latest and I will then prepare the official paperwork.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

Julie

Goodness, Clarendon fund! 傳說中去年錄取率只有 7% 的獎學金,還是全額!這下全解決啦,未來三年挑戰由此開始。

其他經費來源可能再橋一橋,反正可以確定所有花費都被罩住了,只剩下我的投入啦。
