About me
In my case, the transition from SOAS MA to PhD program in the States was fairly seamless. I applied the year after finishing my MA course, and thanks to recommendations from my SOAS advisers and securing distinction marks, I was able to receive full funding from the University of Virginia for my graduate work. I would have loved to stay at SOAS for my PhD but although I was offered admission, I was not offered funding.
