      Well Done, best of luck to you!

      One question though, if you didn't read it, how did you know what it was about?

          That's really cool, I'm going start my training at Oxford next year, so who knows we might be on the same course! Although I wasn't aware that they pay for applicants training, they may mean that they will sort you out with a full loan. I have very close connections with the school and as fair as I'm aware they are in no financial position to pay for pilots training at the moment. Who signed the letter?
          Anyway congratulations and see you there :-)

              You are indeed! Congratulations! Oxford is the best and they only pick the best ;-), it's also my home airport. Have you done the selection process yet?

              See you on the course! When are you starting?

                    Actually I got chosen on my exam results. I hadn't replied but UCAs sent a couple of people form MAnchester doing Physics and Maths, and then they asked for a personal saatement., Didnt hear from them for ages and the yesterday. Anyway I will do my degree alongside

                      You'll be doing your degree alongside, I see are you do the modular course?

                        well it's going to have to be modular from the start it think... so your doing the full ATPL from scrathe - no previous PPL or hours

                          Usually you have to have flying experience to do a modular, but you don't need any to do an integrated. At Oxford everyone has to do an airline standard selection process that has been constructed by bmi and a few others to get on to the intergrated course. They don't give offers in relation to anything like uni or school grades for the integrated course, everybody, and that means everybody has to do the selection process of which only about 1 in 5 get through.

                          So I take it from Gaurav's posts that he will be doing the modular course. Sadly I'm going to be on the APP (Airline Preparation Program) which is the integrated course so I won't be training with him

                                      Congrats Gaurav! I'll be doing my training in Australia. I'm starting the Advanced Airline Course at Basair Australia in October. The course will also get me a turbine rating on the EMB-110 Bandierante and a Flight Instructor's Rating. Who knows, I might see you around some European Airport in the near future. I'll be the 171cm tall QANTAS pilot with black hair and brown eyes, which just about describes a sizable percentage of the pilot population.
