  1. Hi, I've been accepted to the above three programs, that is, to the MPhil in History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge, the MSc in Philosophy of Science at LSE, and the MLitt in Philosophy at St. Andrews. They are all one year programs. I graduated from an Ivy League school in 2016 with an AB in Philosophy with about a 3.8 average (3.7 in philosophy), but haven't had luck with philosophy PhDs. My plan is indeed to apply again for a PhD in Philosophy and/or History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) beginning in 2021, ideally with a superior writing sample. I anticipated that I woul
  2. Has anyone here done or know about the EGID MPhil at Cambridge University? What kind of topics are generally selected for theses and what is the experience of students during the thesis research? What do students generally go on to do? Does the course give a good foundation for pursuing PhD in Education later?
  3. To all masters applicants at Cambridge, when can one expect decisions for Cambridge Trust scholarships after acceptance? How is the applicant informed? Has anyone received a decision in this cycle? Where I am right now: received acceptance for MPhil in Faculty of Education after interview in late January. I am from India and applied to all Cambridge Trust scholarships I am eligible for, EXCEPT Gates-Cambridge. If there is someone from similar background and/or applying to Education, I'd really appreciate your help.
  4. Hi there! I am currently applying to the MPhil in Political Theory at Oxford and have come across difficulties writing my personal statement. I am not sure if I am having troubles understanding what exactly is needed from me because I am foreign to UK universities (as well as grad school haha), so I am hoping someone can help me figure this out: The "How to Apply" Section on the website describes what to include in the personal statement, and mentions that I should "give an indication of the area of my proposed research project", but I am really uncertain as to what that actually means. I
  5. Hello, I am applying for an MPhil in History of Art and Architecture at the University of Cambridge to start in Fall 2020. I have already reached out to a potential supervisor with a 300-word research proposal (as requested on the admissions website), and they have approved me for officially applying to the University. With my application, I have to submit a research proposal of 1,000-1,500 words. The proposal needs to include a hypothesis, a literature review, a statement on method, and key references. I have focused heavily on honing my research topic and have a lot of experience wi
  6. Given that funding is uncertain at every stage in the UK, what are the odds of continuing onto a funded PhD/DPhil in Oxbridge after MPhil? How many students in social/cultural anthropology convert successfully and how many of them secure full funding? If they don't get a satisfactory offer at Oxbridge or in the UK, what's the next best option? US anthro PhDs typically take 7-8 years over 3 in the UK, so is it a good option? Also, how are Oxbridge MPhils seen by US adcomms in sociocultural anthro? Alternately, what are other good places to do a PhD? Leiden, ANU etc. What's the pr
  7. Hi everyone, This might be early to ask given that I am just finishing second year of undergrad but I just want to know if there is anything I should do now or soon to strengthen my grad application to Oxford and Cambridge for their MSt and MPhil in history. I also have a bunch of questions as well! So I currently study history and minor in political science at a highly reputable Canadian university (if that matters). I have a 3.8 GPA right now and I expect I can maintain this if not raise it a bit by the time I graduate. I don't really have an history related ECs or work experi
  8. I am a MPhil in Advanced Computer Science student from Cambridge. I got rejected by most US HCI master programs last year, so I went to Cambridge in the end. Since my MPhil course is an one-year program, I am thinking about my next plan, which is to apply for a Ph.D. degree in US. My research interest is in HCI, especially social computing and affective computing. Because currently I am pursuing a MPhil degree in Cambridge, and it is a research-oriented degree, the most natural choice is to see if the MPhil project suits my interest, and then continue Ph.D. study directly in Cambridg
  9. Hello there, so I am applying for Fall 2018 admission to both the MPhil in American History at Cambridge as well as the MSt in US History at Oxford. I come from a Top 5 US institution with a very high GPA, won a thesis prize/departmental honors in history. I decided to apply to Oxbridge about a month ago as I have been really on the fence about pursuing a PhD in history (given the uncertainty and the insecurity of the job market for PhD candidates) but thought it would be worthwhile to do a year's worth of graduate study to confirm for myself if I want to pursue further studies. I have a
  10. Dear All, I a an Applicant from India , and have done my undergrad in economics (india) MA in International Relations ( India) I have now applied for a second Masters in IR in UK and US . Final aim is to do a PhD and go into teaching. Till the time of writing I have been accepted into American University SIS , Korbel Denver and MPhil in Cambridge . I still wait for Oxford, CIR Chicago, SAIS and Elliott . I hope to do a PhD in USA , and have hence been building and strengthening my profile for it. What are the opinions on doing an MPhil from Oxbridge ? What are the chances of
  11. Hi folks, I was admitted to the Mphil in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies at Cambridge but with ZERO funding (agh!!). I really want to go, but I don't want to put myself into debt for something that isn't "worth it". So I have a few questions for advice: - Does anyone have any advice on securing funding in alternative/creative routes other than just scholarship searches? - Does an Mphil line up with the goals of a PhD/JD degree? - Does anyone know how to tell how prestigious the program is? I'm having a hard time seeing where it's graduates are getting jobs. I'm cons
  12. Hello! I've been accepted for a humanities MPhil at Cambridge, but "the Faculty was not able to nominate [me] for Cambridge scholarship funding." I'm unclear if this means that I'm not eligible for all of the Graduate Competition / Cambridge Trust funding (I checked the box on my app) or just my department's funding. I've been rejected from the only separate scholarship I applied to, the Gates Cambridge, and I was also recently rejected from both colleges I applied to. I'd really appreciate hearing about the funding experiences of other American MPhil students at Cambridge; at the mo
  13. Hello, Is there anyone who applied to Oxford's Master's Programmes by the January 6th deadline and still waiting for results? Please let me know I'm not alone in this anxious situation!
  14. Anyone else applying? I interviewed two weeks ago and still have to hear a response...
  15. Hallo! Currently working on a draft of my statement for Cambridge's Mphil in Health, Medicine, and Society. Does anyone want to look over it? The limit is ~600 words, so I'm struggling with cutting out fluff and including information that would make me an appealing candidate (they sadly don't look at CVs!). It's meant to be framed as a research proposal, so that is what I'm aiming for. I'd be happy to edits others' statements as well
  16. So here's the deal: I applied to 17 PhD programs, many of which were well out of my league, and 1 MPhil studies (at Univ. College London). I was accepted by two PhD programs and also got into the MPhil program at U College London. The two PhD programs I got in to are top 25 programs, and are fairly focused in their strengths. Recently my interests have expanded to contain other areas of study -- areas that these PhD programs don't cover well. U College London, on theother hand, has an extremely great fit and encompasses my major interests along with my burgeoning interests which aren't cove
