This is another major key to success for your application, especially for research degree students. Immediately you have identified your area of interest during the application for a particular research degree scholarship, to increase your chances of success, you must get in touch with a prospective supervisor to discuss your area of interest and get approval for a studentship position. It is really rare to lose a scholarship if you have already gotten approval from a prospective supervisor in that institution.
