  1. Hi everyone! I'm an international student currently studying in the UK. I was accepted into a PhD programme in the US and am now trying to apply for an F-1 visa. Due to the travel ban and closure of consulates/embassies worldwide, I am quite worried about getting my visa on time - I assume I am not the only one. I tried to schedule an appointment in my home country (Germany), however, appointments are fully booked until December. Thus, I was wondering if anyone is in a similar situation and has tried to schedule a visa appointment in the UK (London/Belfast)? I'd rather not pay the applic
  2. Hey guys! Hope application season has been treating you well. I have narrowed down my choices for masters to the following two programs: 1. MSc Advanced Chemical Engineering with Biotechnology, Imperial College London. 2. MEng. Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto. At the moment I am leaning towards Imperial, primarily because of its top 10 ranking and the fact that its an MSc. Im assuming that doing an MSc which has a research component keeps both possible routes- phd and industry open, as opposed to an MEng which is purely industry focused. Will appr
  3. Hello all. I'm not quite there yet, but for many reasons I'd like to pursue my higher education in the UK. I'm obtaining my 4-year undergraduate degree in America. Some reasons as to why I'd like to study in the UK are that it is the better financial decision for me, I believe the education style is overall better for my career aspirations, it will take less time, I have found Brits overall to be very engaging and pleasant people (of course not all will be, but in my experience thus far), and I loved Britain when I visited and have been aching to go back since. I haven't found much information
  4. Hi guys! I'm a third year undergrad student in the UK and was recently accepted into the Cambridge LMB PhD Programme. I was also invited to "visit" the Yale BBS (Biological and Biomedical Sciences) Programme at the end of February, and the post-visit admissions rate should be at least 50-60% , though I don't know for sure yet whether I'll get in. The problem is that I will probably have to accept/reject the Cambridge offer before I visit or hear from Yale and I'm having a hard time deciding what to do. I was wondering if anyone has advice regarding the programmes I applied to or doin
  5. Hi all, I'm applying for a PhD in the biomedical sciences at Oxford. I've got some SOP guidelines from them which is really helpful. I'm just having some difficulty sticking to the word limit and realise that my research descriptions are too long. I would appreciate another person's perspective on what's is deemed as necessary and whats not. Thanks and happy new year!
  6. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
  7. Hi everyone, I am applying for a PhD at universities in the UK. I have recently finished the first draft of my personal statement. I would like to receive some constructive feedback, so I wonder if there is anyone who could advise me on improving my personal statement. Also, I am happy to swap with someone else to help you improve your personal statement. Hope to hear back from you! Thanks.
  8. India has now been removed from the list of eligible countries in the commonwealth scholarship. What scholarships can one avail now in order to pursue doctoral studies in the UK?
  9. Hi, I am a first-year Graduate Student in Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago. I got admitted here in Fall 2018. I basically work on MD Simulations. Now I got an offer to study Machine Learning at Cambridge for PhD with a very well-known professor. However, I am somewhat sceptical about moving to UK from USA since I am unaware of the grad life in UK. The monthly stipend at Cambridge is also quite less. Please offer me some advice. I seem clueless right now.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. I have already got accepted by Imperial and been invited for an interview by LBS. 1.Imperial Msc Business Analytics - ranked 2nd in 2019 business analytics and has been here for quite some time now https://www.imperial.ac.uk/business-school/programmes/msc-business-analytics/ 2. LBS Master in Analytics and Management - first batch in 2019 with the LBS name https://www.london.edu/programmes/masters-courses/masters-in-analytics-and-management Imperial has been around for quite some time now, while LBS has just started this year. The course at LBS sounds
  13. 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
  14. Hi everyone, I'm applying for an MPhil program at Cambridge, and am looking for guidance re: CV format. I'm all set on my resume for U.S. programs, but am not sure what the norm is for applying postgrad in the UK. Specifically, should I keep it to one-page like a traditional resume? Or can it be extended, as is preferred by most U.S. grad programs? Are there any things to include (e.g., relevant coursework) or not include (e.g., extracurricular leadership) as opposed to a U.S. resume. Thanks so much!
  15. Hi! I'm new to this forum but have a question about what my options might be for postgraduate studies in counseling psychology. Here's a bit of a background: I'll graduate in May 2019 from Penn State with bachelor's degrees in journalism and psychology with likely around a 3.7 GPA, and I've spent most of my undergraduate career stuck between those two degrees (essentially debating whether I wanted to go to graduate school for psychology or enter into a communications-related job right out of school). For that reason, most of the extracurricular activities/work experience I've had has been in t
  16. 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
  17. Just graduated with Psychology and Human Development bachelors degrees. Got into a developmental PhD program in the 2018 cycle but turned it down due to poor fit/funding. Starting to look at programs for the 2019 cycle and am interested in applying to some MSc programs at UK schools. Interested in Autism research and a lot of the Autism work in the UK is very interesting and progressive. Has anyone from the US applied to/attended a UK program for grad school? I'm a little lost on the timeline and the funding options. I'm also not sure if I should be looking at MSc taught or research
  18. Seriously confused here. I have very competitive funding at MSU and Peabody. MSU course isn't best suited for me but my advisor is amazing and really well known in the field and in my home country. CRA Peabody course is AMAZING and very much in line with my interests and faculty interests align but I wouldn't have as much support to research in home country. Cambridge and UCL - no funding yet, but thinking about waiting it out. Thoughts?
  19. 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
  20. Hello! This is my first time posting so apologies in advance! I was recently accepted into UCL's MA in Sociology of Childhood and Children's Rights course. Is there anyone else out there who applied and was accepted as well? I'm curious about the job prospects afterwards as well as the experience for an international student. Or maybe even people who are considering UCL for post-graduate study? I am desperate, y'all!
  21. Hey guys, I was offered a place at the University of Bath to do my masters in Microbiology. The only problem is that I can't really afford the cost of paying as an international student. I was looking online and mostly found scholarships for 3rd world country students. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any scholarships that US students can apply to. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I double majored in Dance and English at WUSTL. I am wanting to use my dance theory background in literature. I am particularly interested in how site-specific dance work can be used a lens for characters in literature who propel the narrative with their physicality and inhuman capabilities. Especially plot impact when characters are held in some kind of captivity. For example: Puck and Ariel in Shakespeare and Catherine and Bertha from the Bronté sisters. I realize I'm doing some major genre-hopping so I also wonder about programs that would be more open to that. I'm also particularl
  23. Hi everyone, I have been accepted to Masters programmes at Christie's Education, London and several universities in London for Fall 2016 admission. My undergraduate degree is from a British university and I will stay in London for my Masters. I am hoping to do a second Masters in the US (Fall 2017 entry) and am wondering what the reputation of a Masters degree from Christie's Education (or Sotheby's Institute) is in the US? I currently have no plans on doing a PhD and have researched into existing free-standing Masters programmes. How would US graduate admissions view my application if I appli
  24. 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?
  25. Anthro friends, After years of exploring various fields, I'm finally closing in on my longtime dream of breaking into the field of humanitarian aid (through anthropology). I'm interested in applying to doctoral programs this fall to research humanitarian aid, ethics, and the role of religion with a focus on China/Asia. I majored in English in undergrad and have a first master's in religion. I did a one-year conversion course in social anthropology because I was drawn to the anthropological research method but still feel relatively ignorant about the field, particularly in terms of s
