  1. I have already read up on all the relevant posts ever posted here on this forum but I think I still could do with some more of your opinions about which school I should go for. First of all, I have already got my offer for doing master's degree from five UK universities: UCL (MA), KCL (MA), St Andrews (MLitt), Warwick (MA), Durham (MA). I plan to move on to doctoral degree--at least for the moment!--and hopefully I could do so either at Oxford or Cambridge, or any top tier universities in the States. My main interest is in Philosophy of Language and I'm also deeply interested in problems
  2. hi, i got accepted to UPenn IEDP, Vanderbilt IEPM, and i'm waiting for UCL (education and development). all three are masters. can anyone who got accepted or is a current student give some opinions about the degrees? upenn takes 1.5, vandy 2, and ucl 2 years upenn is in phily, so i think better networks? vandy is 2 years and i like this because i'm going quite directly from undergraduate but i think the network and job market might be smaller. and several ppl recommended ucl about development. i'm weighing the pros and cons about these schoo
  3. Hi everyone, I've applied for the cognitive science Masters at UCL London. Does anyone on the group have any input they can share on the programme? Also any inputs on whether UCL is a known university in the US specifically for psychology would be very helpful. Thanks!
  4. Hi! I have just applied to a few programs and I'm just looking for some advice to see if I have a shot I guess. Also looking for any schools in Europe besides University College London that have what I'm looking for. A little background on me, I got my Bachelor of Science Interior Design at Drexel University in Philly with a minor in Art History. I graduated with a 3.3 GPA and a pretty solid portfolio (my strong suit is definitely my renderings). For the past 2 years I have been teaching at the Community College of Philadelphia as an adjunct professor teaching AutoCAD and Intro to Archit
  5. Hello Everyone. I'm an Economics undergraduate student at Università Bocconi. (going on exchange at the University of Virginia on spring 2018). My GPA is 26,7/30, but 27,5 if we concentrate on quantitative/economics subjects. I have taken the GRE (164Q, 163V, 3AW). I have sincerely outstanding academic refererences and I think I have written a very well balanced personal statement. No working experience, good IELTS and I speak fluently french, too. I know that at LSE they look a lot at the average, and that is my flaw together with the 3 at the GRE AW (however, I got 93% on verbal.)

  7. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has applied to UCL masters programs via post. I am applying offline especially because one of my referees(my previous employer) does not have any institutional email address since the company is not big enough to feel necessary to get one. And there are few more questions I would like to ask.. 1. Is there any reference form does UCL grad school require? (I've already got one from my employer and the letter is written on the company's head letter and sealed inside a company's head envelope with a signature on it) 2.
  8. I received a conditional offer from UCL for an MRes programme in Computer Science department. They asked me to submit any accepted English language test's score. My TOEFL score is R:25 S:24 L:30 W:22. My total score is above the cutoff but my writing section score is 22, which is below UCL's sectional cutoff of 24. What are my chances of receiving an unconditional offer? I dont know if I have enough time to manage to take another TOEFL test. Thank you
  9. Hi guys, I am in the middle of a crisis. I just finished my degree in journalism in London, but actually I want to study literature: I got a place for a master's degree in comparative literature at UCL, so a very good uni, but I am now thinking of refusing that and go to Lausanne and start another bachelor, in Italian, French and Spanish literature. Ultimately, I want to become a lecturer at university level. So my question is: can I still get into teaching (after a PhD), even if my bachelor is not in literature, or do I really need that qualification? Is it really worth changing?
  10. Hello everyone,I am currently struggling with an important decision regarding a Postgraduate programme for next year and could use some input from the Grad Café.Current situationI have been accepted to the following programs:- MSc Economics (UCL)- MSc Economics, Two Year program (LSE)and am waiting for a response (which is very likely to be positive) from:- Master of Advanced Studies in Economics (KU Leuven, Belgium)BackgroundI have a Bachelor degree in Engineering from a good university in in my home country but without that much international projection (PUC - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and I a
  11. Hello, I am an undergraduate student in Canada and am planning on applying to UK graduate programs in International Relations in Fall (September) 2017. I wanted to ask what programs have the greatest prestige, best opportunities for careers in academia, careers in policy, and foreign service that I could receive entry into. I finished my third year with a CGPA of 3.78/4.00, have experience working in the Canadian embassy in D.C as a Trade Policy intern, worked in a Fortune 500 company, President of my university's Pre-Law Society, and was a Poli Sci instructional assistant at my universi
  12. I am a third year student studying in a comprehensive university in Ontario, Canada. I currently possess a GPA of 10.7/12 (roughly 3.85 or 87%). I have experience working in the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C, in a Fortune 500 Mutual Fund Company, and President of my school's Student Union Pre-Law Society. It has always been my dream to move to the U.K (I am a British passport holder) and continue my PhD there in the future. That being said, I wanted to know whether I am competitive for these Masters programs: 1. MA War Studies, Kings College London 2. MSc International R
  13. Hi All, Decisions are hard, any insight would be greatly appreciated! A bit of background: I'm from the Midwest, got my undergrad degree in Environmental Science and Policy, and I am hoping to specialize in sustainable energy. Ultimately, I am hoping to work on multilateral sustainable energy issues. Still waiting to hear back from Oxford and LSE, but my currently these are my top choices: 1) Columbia University - MPA in Environmental Science and Policy -1 year. Obviously, Columbia is a great school with high name recognition and I assume a really great alumni network. The locatio
  14. Hi everyone! I just received offers to study a Msc in Public Health at UCL, ICL, and LSHTM and am having trouble choosing which school to commit to. I live in the states (though am a UK citizen) and want to learn more about the reputations of the schools, as well as how each programme is unique. Are there strong alumni networks at particular schools? I would love any insight folks might have- I'm sure there are plenty others who are coming up against similar roadblocks in their research on schools. Many thanks!
  15. 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
  16. Hi all, I got two interview invitations - one for the UCL neuroscience program (interview next week) and the second for MIT brain and cognition (mid-March). UCL made it clear that in case they offer me a place they want an answer within 10 days. Independently, my MIT PoI contacted me to ask if I had any ideas following a talk that he recently gave and I attended. I asked him if it was possible to arrange a Skype meeting before my interview in London and he gave a diplomatic answer along the lines of "I don't want to stand in the way of your best offer". We continued to email a little abou
  17. I was intending on going to Lund University's Masters in International Development and Management, but two weeks ago I got a late acceptance from UCL's Environment and Sustainable Development Program. I'm having a lot of trouble deciding because I'm not super sure how consultancies, development organizations, or multilaterals think in terms of hiring. So far two professors in related fields (development econ and urban planning for low-income countries) have recommended UCL flat out. People I knew who worked in UNDP and UNEP both told me to go for the highest brand value due to how competi
  18. Hi All, I am from Pakistan and planning to do my masters in International Education Policy/Development. I have applied to various programs and scholarships over the past couple of years including one MPA AND MPP program. My story is pretty much summed up in the image. While I am still waiting to hear from Fulbright, university scholarships from UPENN, Kings and UCL; I need to be clear about what I should do if I don't get any of that. UPENN is like a dream school but even with 10,000 grant, I will need to take at least 80,000 dollars in loan. I wanted to know if its worth it? Cause
  19. Hi there, I received offers from both King's College London and University College London for a MA in philosophy. I'm wondering if anyone knows about either program (or both) would share some opinions. What is the strength of either department? What are the academic and social environments like at KCL or UCL? Many thanks!
  20. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated! I have a very tough choice ahead of me. -Cambridge MPhil in International Relations and Politics. -Fulbright for Sciences Po Paris, with LSE the following year (dual degree). -Oxford MPhil in International Relations -Others: LSE MSc in IPE on its own (1 year), PSIA International Public Management on its own (Fulbright first year, second year much less expensive than if I did the LSE dual degree but less impressive/wouldn't open doors in London), UCL Masters in International Public Policy, SAIS Bologna/DC (offered no money)
  21. Hi all, I've recently been accepted into two graduate linguistics programs - the M.Phil. at Trinity College Dublin and the M.A. at University College London. I'm excited at the prospect of attending either school, but I'm wondering if anyone out there in the world has any insider information about these programs or institutions? I'm interested in joining a tight-knit community (advantage: TCD), but my research interests lie in sociophonetics (advantage: UCL). Any thoughts?
  22. I thought everyone who's been accepted to UCL can post on here, maybe stating if they'll be attending, the program they applied to, where they're from and what school they went to, and what their interests are.
