What happens post offer?

Hi everyone, what happens after you get an offer for a place on a doctoral course? - are there more checks; do you then have to get a reference from your first honorary post x years ago?

Re: Application “honesty”

Re: new UCL LONDON PWP Trainee roles & AP roles

I know we do too enid! Its the uni's decision I think, not really sure. Services are annoyed about it as we feel we get a better range of candidates with more clinical exp comming through NHS jobs.
