  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 in the area of epistemic justification. (I guess you could say I'm biased towards analytic philosophy, I love ancient philosophy as well though) I haven't been able to make up my mind between UCL and St Andrews. Apparently, St A has a very strong philosophy department and some of their master's graduates had managed to get accepted to Oxbridge PhD. The only thing that puts me off accepting my offer from St A is that the surroundings of the two schools. I am quite sure that being located at the centre of the capital must be a huge plus academically as it gives you a lot more access to a raft of academic resources. But I get the impression that the philosophy department of UCL is usually considered to be less strong than that of St A, although it seems UCL's MA course is still said to be decent one. What is your view about the philosophy departments of those two schools, especially for the terminal Master's degree? And which one would you say is likely to suit my decision criteria considering my preferences? I'm comparing academic staffs info of those two unis at the moment which I guess should be my top priority to make a decision, but I really could to with your opinion or personal experience! Please share your view. Many thanks in advance.
  2. 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. ?
  3. Hi to all, Having graduated from one of Turkey's reputable universities in 2010 ( BS Engineering, gpa 2.01), I began to work in sales and marketing departments of corporate companies. Now having worked 5 years full time, I decided to add an mba vision both for myself and my career. I want to ask you which way I should follow? I need your advices. -Can I apply for a grad school such a low gpa? Does it sound logical for admittance? -Should I just prefer only my country Turkey for Mba or does having an Mba from USA or UK get more to my career? -Should I decide the grad school location after the application? As you see I am really confused, I am not sure on which step I should start? Thanks for your advices,
  4. 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? Thanks for the help!

  6. I've just graduated with a BA in History of Art and am taking a year off before enrolling in an MA programme, which means I should soon start applying for 2017 entry. My main area of interest is 19th century European painting - French (and American) and German - and, besides the Courtauld programme, I've so far found very few programmes in the UK which offer units/options on 19th century art, so I'm kind of lost as to what other MA programmes I should apply for in order to pursue my interest in 19th century painting does anyone have any advice? thanks in advance

    Durham, UK

    I just got accepted to Durham University in the UK! Can anyone give me a decent picture of what living in Durham is like?
  8. So my friend is contemplating going to UK for his masters degree. He is majoring in Philosophy and is set on ultimately getting a PhD. However, his grades aren't the strongest (about a 3.3 overall and a 3.4-3.5 in Philosophy) which is holding him back from applying straight to PhD programs. I believe he is mainly interested in the philosophy of logic, however he is a little torn on the specifics and has yet to make up his mind definitely (though he doesn't have to start applying until the Fall). So his question is, what is the difference between the two masters programs? We found the websites slightly confusing when attempting to distinguish between the two. Which is more competitive? Which is better for students who seek PhDs and ultimately desire to teach at a university in the US? Thanks!
  9. Hi all, How does a Masters (MSc) from England transfer over when you are applying to PhD programs in the states? I was accepted for a one-year Msc Social-Cultural Anthropology at the London School of Economics. When applying for PhD programs, do you get to skip the first year that focuses on theory/general courses? Does having a Masters from an internationally renown school help you get into better graduate programs (like top-tier)? Thanks!
