  1. Hi all! Surprised to see that there is no thread for Oxford BSG's MPP this year (I wonder why). Starting this for all those waiting for the results.
  2. I was accepted into both and am trying to decide which to accept. Anyone have any insight into the relative strengths of each program? Sending strength to everyone else out there making tough decisions!
  3. This is my first post. I am an Italian undergraduate physics student. I have just been admitted to Oxford MMAthPhys (Master Mathematical and Theoretical Physics) and ETH Zurich for a MSc in Physics. I am struggling to weight the two options: my main concern is about the PhD. I fear that a 1-year master could be a problem in finding a PhD afterwards: applications for the UK and US have a deadline fixed at 6 Dec and I don't know whether applying so early could be a problem for me. I would be very disappointed in the case I fail in finding a PhD position.Do you think a 1-year master at Oxford cou
  4. Need grad school advice please! I got accepted into Columbia's MPH in the Sociomedical Sciences department & Oxford's MSc in International health and tropical medicine and need to pick one. For context, I've done Sociology from the Uni of Edinburgh, and am now a health editor in India. I want to study public health, specifically women's health and look at the structural inequalities in healthcare. I'm still waiting on my funding and scholarships but for now: Columbia is more expensive (big con) but I am excited with the course content and can dabble in many courses, and
  5. Heyy wanted to create an applicant thread for art historians at Oxford, if I can find any others on gradecafe haha!!
  6. Hello, I'm very interested in the Msc Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology program at Oxford. I want to apply next year. Has anyone on this forum studied this particular field at Oxford ? What was your experience ? I worked for several years for art/fashion publications directly after graduating from high school, which prompted my interest in the art world. I'm currently studying sociology/anthropology at a university in Paris where I have great grades. I'm passionate about what I'm studying and would love to further my knowledge of the artistic world while mixing it with an ant
  7. For all those waiting it out for Oxford
  8. I'm going to be starting my MSc in Social Data Science at the OII this fall. I was wondering if any other OII students (MSc, DPhil, SDS, Social Science of the Internet... doesn't matter) have heard back from Oxford, the OII or their college about funding. The department has been pretty tight lipped when I've asked about the process of allocating scholarships/departmental awards. Is there something I'm missing here? I'm interested to hear other's experiences; especially from incoming/present OII students.
  9. Hi all, I got admitted into PhD programs in Geology/Earth & Planetary Science at Caltech, Harvard, Cornell, and Oxford. I am an international student (from Colombia) with a Fulbright scholarship and deciding where to go has been very difficult for me so far. - Caltech: Pros: Awesome advisors, program structure, approach to research, research areas Cons: Very few Latin American students at Caltech, it takes 5 years to complete the program - Harvard: Pros: Excellent university reputation, research area Cons: I have been told my PI is not very good with gra
  10. Hi folks. I have shortlisted these two from a handful of offers as final contenders for grad school destination. This turns out to be a much harder decision than I imagined. Below I try to list all that I can think of right now. There are generic factors and there are factors that are really specific to me. Basic info: The Oxford offer is a non-funded program under the supervision of a moderately renowned professor (I rate his academic prestige at 8/10) and a Royal Society Fellow co-advisor (10/10). I can apply to China Scholarship Council (hopes are slim though) but the cost is mana

  12. Hello everyone, I've heard back from most programs I have applied to and have been given around one month to make final decisions. I'm an American-European dual citizen and have lived in Germany, France and the United States (and am fluent in those languages). I was admitted to 1) one-year program in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies at Stanford University without any funding. I'll get FAFSA and have another scholarship that will pay around ~10,000$. Pros: name recognition (!), small cohort (~5-7), very interesting classes and great professors, chance to learn more
  13. I had a Skype interview for PhD. in oxford last week. They told me they will have their decision within mid. March, but if I need an earlier decision then I'll contact them. 1. The interview was not terrible, and I could answer most of their questions, but I got confused in few questions (not necessarily the most difficult ones...). How good should my interview be in order to get an offer? 2. Do you think it's a good idea to ask for an earlier decision, or it may reduce my chances to get an offer / funding? Thanks!
  14. 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
  15. Hello Everyone Came across this forum as I await my decision for Oxford MPP 2020-21, would love to discuss more about BSG at large and how is the wait going on for all you folks.
  16. Hi all, I know it's a vague question but anyone in the contemporary art history and theory DPhil programme in Oxford(http://www.rsa.ox.ac.uk/study/dphil/dphil-programme)? or has anyone heard of it? It seems a perfect program for me in many respects, but I'm not sure whether it's an outstanding one in this field. Thanks in advance!
  17. Does it matter which undergrad university my client went to? Is gaining upper 2:1 from St Andrews reduce a chance of getting offered a BPhil in Philosophy or MPhil in Economics at Oxford or Harvard?
  18. I thought this was the best place to ask these questions, so... Which Oxford masters programme is easier to get in; Economics, Sociology or Philosophy? I have a client who wants to know. Also, does it matter which undergrad uni he went to? He currently studies at a top uni in Scotland (St Andrews or Edinburgh - I am not at liberty to say which, sorry). Currently studies Economics and Philosophy, but could switch to Sociology as he like it as well. Also by studying which is it easier to gain a job at a university? Thank you all for your answers!
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Ive secured an internship at the United Nations in NYC but the dates overlap with the fall semester. NYU has said they'll give me course credit for the internship, whereas Oxford says apply next year with no guarantee of admissions. What is a better program in the long run? I'm interested in applying for PhD's in America after I've completed the masters. Is oxford as prominent for US PhD's? Thanks!
  22. Hey guys, the final deadline for the MPP application was 25th January and while we wait for the decision, let us connect here and get the conversation going. Surprisingly this is the 1st thread for Oxford BSG MPP. Thanks.
  23. How many of you have accepted MSc in Computer Science(Fall 2019) offer from Oxford University? Anyone here who has been shortlisted for any of the Oxford's "no seperate application required" scholarships?
  24. I started my PhD at the University of Toronto last year in a social science related field. However, I figured out that my research does not match much with the faculty members here. But maybe I could still successfully complete my degree here in a collaborative way as I have found some professors in other departments willing to partially supervise me. However, in the meantime, I applied to Oxford and received a fully funded offer where I have a far better match for my research topic. Besides, the research group is also quant focused methodology-wise. But the difficulty now is that some pe
  25. Hello Everyone! I am a bit worried to decide between schools. My background is computational chemistry and computational material science and I been accepted into the following schools : 1) UCLA-Chemical Engineering 2) EPFL-Chemistry and chemical engineering 3) Oxford-Chemistry (still waiting for funding ) I am a bit distressed about what to choose. Can you please help me out here? Any kind of help would be very appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!
