  1. Hi all, Currently wondering about the MScPh program via Distance offered by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine? Anyone have any insights?
  2. Hi all, This month I got accepted to two master's degrees: MA in International Relations at Leiden University, with a Global Political Economy specialization, and MSc Development Studies at SOAS. I'm very happy as both interest me a lot, and are in great universities, but now I can't decide which one I should choose, and would like some help with it. At first, I was more inclined to choose SOAS, as I heard many good things about it from a friend of mine who did his Master's there. I did some research about SOAS and student life there, and I thought it would be a place where I'd real
  3. Hello! International student here who is faced with the choice between Edmonton and London. Can any of my Canadian resident friends out there throw some light on the following aspects in an Edmonton vs London context? I will be a PhD student living off limited stipend. 1. Liveability - weather, affordability of housing options for a small family, access to utilitarian services etc 2. Early schooling - how good are the schools 3. Childcare - affordability and quality Thank you very much!
  4. Trying to decide between1. LSE MSc International Political Economy (1 yr)2. Dual Degree with Sciences Po (International Economic Policy) and the University of Toronto (Global Affairs) (2yrs total)My background is in Investment Banking in Canada. Interested in moving towards a career at the OECD, World Bank, UN etc.Although LSE ranks higher than Sciences Po in most areas I'm concerned that I won't be as competitive without having an internship during my degree.Hoping for some help!Cheers
  5. Hi! I got accepted to the following programs (all one year) and I can't decide! 1. Master of Arts (MA), The Fletcher School, Tufts University 2. Master of International Public Policy (MIPP), SAIS, Johns Hopkins University 3. Master of Advanced Studies in International Affairs (MAS-IA), GPS, UCSD 4. MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy, LSE My interests are IR, strategy, and security. When I consider location, I think UCSD is attractive but Fletcher and SAIS network are strong! LSE also has a very good program. I don't have to worry about scholarships becau
  6. Hi, I am an Indian student. I have been accepted into two great programs- MRes Cancer Informatics at Imperial College London and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue. I would very much prefer to settle down in Europe in the future, so I am confused as to what I should choose! The main factors for each of them are- Imperial- I have been awarded a prestigious British Council scholarship covering 100% tuition fees to study the program at Imperial. The program offers the opportunity to do a six-month project at CRUK Cambridge, Francis Crick Institute, Institute of Cancer Resear
  7. Anyone who's completed a 1 year Master's at LSE able to speak to the pros/cons of the school? I was recently accepted to the MSc in Conflict Studies and would love some input on the benefits and drawbacks of the program/school/city. Anything at all would help!
  8. Hi all, I have recently been admitted to three programs: Georgetown's MA in Conflict Resolution, Boston University's MAIA in Diplomacy, and LSE's MSc in Conflict Studies. I cannot for the life of me decide which school would be the best fit, so I'm hoping that someone here has either attended one of these schools or can offer insight into which program sounds the most compelling. Here is what I know so far: Georgetown Tuition: ~ $50k USD per year for a 2 year program Great career centre/job prospects post-grad Perfectly located for internships/careers in diplomacy
  9. Does anyone have insight into the Royal College of Art's IED program? Or the school in general? How they support their students and set them up for job prospects and PhD prospects? How the classes are? How the environment is?
  10. Hello everyone, I have received an offer from Rhode island school of Design (Masters in Furniture Design) and from Royal College of Arts (Masters in Design Product). Both the college are well known for their quality of education in respective courses. Which one is better for an international student wanting to pursue a practical and exploratory course for masters and also intending to find a job in the city. Exposure wise I think the city of London would be better but RISD is also know for its workshop based curriculum. I would appreciate any kind of input or insight regarding t
  11. Hi! Looking for advice from someone more familiar with the London uni scene, experiences, etc. I recently received unconditional offers from LSE (Politics & Communications) and Goldsmiths (Political Communication and Media&Communications). While the LSE is currently my top choice (for obvious reasons such as world class lecturers, prestige, networking opportunities, etc - also that my husband will be studying there and going to the same uni would probably make our daily life easier), I also wonder whether I might be discarding Goldsmiths purely due name-dropping value (w
  12. It is May and I am still waiting to hear replies from the two schools I have applied in London. Birkbeck and The Courtauld. Is this normal? I did submit my application late (end of March). Is this a bad sign? This wait is incredibly frustrating. I need to find housing and get my student visa. And I don't know what to do???????
  13. I'm stuck deciding between UCL, KCL and Imperial for a research program (Masters of Research) in Biology (specifically biochemistry/biophysics). I've looked at the current projects/faculty research at each university and find all of them interesting. I can't really decide which program I should go with. Can anyone with a biology background offer insight on any of these universities? I'd really appreciate it!
  14. Does anyone know if the Courtauld Institute sends out official offers via email or post?
  15. Hello, I am a political science undergrad student at a comprehensive university in Ontario, Canada. I currently possess a cumulative GPA of 3.78/4.00 and a major GPA of 3.91/4.00. I recently (two days ago) finished my 3rd out of 4 years of university and will be applying in September/October of 2017 with the marks I have already attained. I have work experience as a teaching and grading IR assistant at my university (going to be 8 months), as a trade policy intern at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC (4 months), as a legal intern for a prestigious international law firm (1 month),
  16. I had my interview two weeks ago and was told by the professor that I was "obviously qualified" and she would like to offer me a place and the next step was to send me a formal offer. It has been two weeks and I have since sent a follow up email (to admissions as well as my interviewer) and have yet to hear a single thing from anyone!! I am getting frustrated.....any advice out there???
  17. Hello everyone, im currently deciding between a few options for grad school fall 2017 start and would love your opinions. I have been accepted into the following programs: LSE MSc In Global Politics Sciences Po MSc In Public policy iheid (graduate institute in Geneva) in international affairs and have also applied to the dual degree between LSE sciences po (Psia) ... haven't heard back yet but assuming I get in, which of the four options would you choose? For some background, I went to undergrad in the US and majored in comparative literature so I am a bit of
  18. Hi, first time posting Came across mention of a GradCafe on UK-based The Students Room. I've applied for MA History, SOAS and MSc Islamic Studies & History, Oxford and (soon) MSc in Empires, Colonialism, and Globalisation, LSE. I am also a SOAS graduate in BA Arabic from ten years back but still use their library as an alumnus frequently. Then seeing the word "Fall" when signing up, I recognised this is a US-based forum (and consequently there is a red line under "recognised" as I write). In any case some good general info here on research, academia and the like. Good t
  19. Hello to allI am planning to start an MA/MFA in visual arts this upcoming fall and have been offered places both at RCA and at Goldsmiths. The program at RCA seems to relate more to my work and I had a better feel during my interview with them; but I like the possible interaction at Goldsmiths with other faculties and err...I'm still on the fence. (Note: I haven't studied arts into now and haven't been to London before). Has anyone attended any of these programs/could give some insight ?many thanks in advance !
  20. 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
  21. Hello fellow students, I have a quick question for any postgraduate (preferablely a masters student) currently studying in one of the london universities. Is studying in London any good? I am super excited to apply for neuroscience at Kings and Imperial (and maybe UCL but its very expensive) but after sending my applications off, I now need to make a plan for if I actually end up going. Whats living in london like? Is it very expensive for postgrads to live in london? What were or are your financial plans for your studies? If you go to Kings or Imperial, what is it like to study there?

  23. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if there is anyone who's still waiting to hear back from Sotheby's London regarding their Internship Program for April - June 2016. My application has been under review for about 1 month and a half now and it's already March... Maybe anyone with any previous experience? Thanks in advance! George
  24. Hello there all, I am an undergraduate student from the USA and have a cumulative GPA of 3.27 (3.35 if I get A's in these last two courses I'm taking this semester) at a decent university. I want to move to London for my graduate studies but I have not even gotten close to choosing universities to apply to. My question is, will my GPA suffice in getting into a good graduate program in London? If any of you are studying in London, I'd like to know what your GPAs are so I can get a good figure. Also, do you recommend applying to many universities or just a few? My fear is that the universit
  25. Hi everyone. I'm going to be applying for grad school soon and I just wanted to come on here to ask for some advice. I'm a little torn between applying for Sotheby's Master's of Art Business at the New York location or the London location. If anyone on here has taken the course at either location can you tell me a little about your experience? Is there a reason that swayed you towards the city that you chose? Is there something that swayed you away from the other city? I would appreciate any input because I really don't know. Thank you so much!! Sidenote, Christie's is also in the running
