  1. Hi all, I've been trying to research PhD programs that have a more interdisciplinary approach - I have an MA in contemporary art history where I focused on public art and crime - but my PhD project will be focused on how art history is written, perceived and populated. This will involve the cult of celebrity, power and politics, gender studies, crime in the art world etc. I figured the best people to ask are those out there doing it! Can you recommend programs that are quite contemporary and are not traditional in terms of their understanding of art history as a discipline? I've been through
  2. I am in my senior year of philosophy at an online college. I've been thinking about studying a masters degree in philosophy, but for the near future (2-3 years) my only options would be online (there is nothing around and I cannot relocate). What do you think about Edinburgh's MSc in Epistemology, Ethics and Mind? Is this a good option if I want to apply to a PhD program after said period, at what point I'd be able to relocate?
  3. I have received an offer from McGill, University of Toronto, and University of Edinburgh's English Masters programs. I have to accept one of the offers by the end of next week, and I would like some input from others about which school would be better and which school would be more likely to get me into a better American PhD program. McGill Pros: I received my undergraduate education from McGill and am on good terms with the professors here. I have also been offered a $1500 RA-ship with my current supervisor, should I accept. The program is two years long, which provides some
  4. G'day everyone, I've applied to 4 M.A / MSc programmes in Philosophy: KU Leuven, Edinburgh, UCD, & Essex. I've already had offers from the two latter. I'm over in Australia so travelling back to Europe prior to making a decision will be tricky - that's where you helpful people come in Has anyone studied at any of the above? (doesn't have to be Philosophy) If so, could you offer a bit of guidance on what to expect regarding: department atmosphere, academic expectations, support from profs, size of classes, living in those cities, etc. I think I'm about to reject my Dubli
  5. Hi all, I have just been accepted to the University of Edinburgh (MSc- Environment Culture and Society) and deferred until Fall 2018. I was just wondering if anyone out there has lived in Edinburgh and knows a bit about the cost of living (monthly rent of a flat/university housing), bills, groceries, etc. I have checked Edinburgh's website, however they do not offer much in the way of the actual cost of student housing, just the fact that it is available. My wife and I will be heading over next august and just want to get an idea of how much things typically cost over there (we are from N
  6. Hi, I would welcome any tips or personal experiences of students who either studied/lived in London or in Edinburgh (UK). If any one has any personal information about the tiny town of St Andrews in Scotland, it'd be greatly appreciated as well. What are possible upsides vs downsides? Besides it being more expensive to live in London. I'm looking into doing both my MA and PhD somewhere in the UK so I really want to make sure that I'm choosing correctly. The MA is 1 year and PhD 3 years. Might it be cheaper to study in Scotland for the MA and then move to London for the PhD before, h
  7. I am strongly considering applying for an MSc in Environment and Development from the University of Edinburgh. Does anyone have any experience with the program or university as a whole? I got my undergraduate degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, so I am a little concerned about transitioning to a UK university, but the program seems very interesting. Also, does anyone have experience with their admissions? I have a 3.58 undergrad overall GPA in Environmental Studies and a minor in Geology (with distinction in my major). In addition, I have two published articles and an abstract pub
  8. Hi, all! I got my BA in English at a school in the South, graduated with a 3.9 in 2015. I received a Fulbright ETAship and just returned from that to the US. In the 2014-15 application season, I applied for 8 PhDs and 4 MAs my senior year of college, and got one PhD offer, all four Masters. I then asked to defer (for Fulbright) and so was still accepted to those 4 Masters, plus another MA for the 2015-16 application season, 2016 academic year. My 2015 applications were not very impressive; I have since finished and defended my undergraduate honors thesis, presented 4 papers, spoken individuall
  9. So here it goes. I am an American student who has been accepted into LSE and Edinburgh for MSc programs (Social Policy and Planning at LSE and Comparative Public Policy at Edinburgh). I am having a difficult time deciding between the two for a couple of reasons. LSE is more prestigious, I know this and I understand how important of a factor it is in future job prospects. I have heard however that the student experience is pretty low; students don’t get much time with professors/facilities are over crowded/good job training not great education. On the other hand I have heard that Edinburgh is l
  10. I've been working on this Personal Statement for months now and I think it's ready to go public. I know it's far from finished, so I would appreciate your critique. The University of Edinburgh is my only option for Graduate Studies at the moment, so I need an essay that will get me in! I need to present a Personal Statement and a document about "Relevant Knowledge" on the field. Each one has to have 3,500 characters or less. Please correct any grammar and punctuation errors, as I am not an English native-speaker. Thank you very much!! _____________________________________________
