Making Choices: Accepting an Offer

Hello everyone!

I thought that waiting to hear back from the different universities was going to be the hardest part of the application process for Grad School… Well I was wrong, the hardest part is choosing a program after all 6 programs you applied to give you offers to study in their universities. I applied to 6 different programs at 4 universities around the UK.

University of Essex: MA History and MA International Relations
Oxford Brookes University: MA International Studies
Newcastle University: MA European Union Studies and MA European History
University of Liverpool: MA History

I got my first offer on October 1st and the last offer on October 13th after sending my applications on September 30th.

Since I started this process, I have been going crazy thinking of which program I would go to if I was given offers to all of them. And I had them narrowed down, but then they both gave me offers.

So, after long talks with my advisor and my mother, I finally accepted a program.

On September 2016, I will be moving to…

Newcastle for a MA in European History!!!

Newcastle University has been my top school from day 1 and I am so happy I got an unconditional offer to study in such a great program!


I am so happy that I will be living my dreams of studying in the UK once again!

Now, I am off to finding money for my studies!

See y’all later!


Funding: The life-long struggle

Hello Everyone!

So now that I have been offered positions in 5 different Graduate Programs in the UK, the issue now if finding a way to fund my studies abroad. I know I will be Applying for Federal Loans and some scholarships, but that does not cover the Full $40,000.00 a year that it takes to live and study abroad. So in order to get to my studies, I have decided to open a GoFundMe account asking for funding donations for my studies. I am also working as much as I can every week in order to save up money, but when your rent goes up $300 a month from what you used to pay things get rough. Therefore, I am asking everyone that can spear a couple of dollars to help me get to my goal or raising $10,000 which will cover my housing situation abroad (It cost around 6,000 pound for accommodation only in one of the unis I received an offer).

This link will get you to my account: GoFundMe:Help Ascenett get to her Masters

If you can please done even if it is $1 as any help is great help!



Guess who…?

Guess who will be moving to the UK in September of 2016 to do her masters?! THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE!! I have recieve 4 offers to do my masters, 2 in history and 2 in international studies!!! I can’t believe that my dream of studying the the UK again is coming true!! I have been delaying applying for a master’s for 2 years because of something or another, so now that I have the chance I just had to take it. I am still waiting on another program, but all I care is that I got into grad school in the UK!!!!!!



So as of October 2nd of 2015, all besides one of my applications have been submitted! I keep looking at my email from the moment I wake up to right before I fall asleep just in case I get an email from any of the schools!

Once I get the first few emails I will update in here if I got in or not. 

PS: make a copy of your diploma/certificate, they are going to ask for it 😉

Have a great day!
