Further to last week's announcement of the bursary-application outcomes (below), we have received a large nunber of queries about the booking code required of bursars by Leicester's conference-booking portal. Please note that detailed booking instructions, along with the relevant code, were sent out on Monday (15th) as follows: i) To the departmental contacts who made the successful nomanations. If your are such a contact, please could you pass the information onto your students ASAP, if you haven't already done so? If you are a postgraduate student at a UK or Irish institution, please ask the member of staff in question! ii) To direct applicants (teachers, overseas students, recent postgraduate) individually. If you haven't received the information, please check your junk-mail for a message from email@example.com sent on 15/1/18. Bursars should make their bookings ASAP, and other delegates are encouraged to book sooner rather than later -- and in any case by 28th February.
