|Fellowship Start Date
|Prepare to start
Start 3 months after funding application deadline and complete by fellowship start date
1. Apply for any approvals that have to wait until funding is in place, such as ethics (you should have prepared the application in advance but usually will not be able to submit it until funding has been attained; REC and HRA approvals are applied for after funding is in place).
2. Update your Training Programme Director that you have achieved funding (although your OOPR application should already have been submitted).
3. Let your collaborators know that funding has been successful.
4. Collect together the documents you will need to register for a PhD. Check the specific requirements of the university you wish to apply to.
