  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. 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
  3. The department to which I have applied for Master's entry at the University College London has requested that I answer some follow-up questions to "add onto my Statement of Purpose". Speaking honestly, what does this say about my chances of being accepted? Is it a good sign that they wanted further information from me?
  4. 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?
  5. Hello all, I recently was accepted into University College London's Cultural Heritage Studies MA program through its Institute of Archaeology. I had applied for a Fulbright to cover the cost, but alas, was not awarded a grant. I'm considering taking out the loans for the one year program ($25,000 tuition for US students), but the prospect of graduating with all of the debt and then some, is frightening. I am now wondering if I would be better off finding a program in the US. However, it seems as though there is not a lot of funding options for taught MA programs in the US, and most of the programs are two years in duration, making tuition just as daunting. There seem to be very few US programs in Cultural Heritage Studies, so I am now considering options with flexibility in applied anthropology or perhaps archaeology. I've found programs at University of Montana and other smaller universities that have cultural heritage focused MA options, but would prefer a bigger, perhaps more prestigious university, with more of an international focus. My top choice in the US would be Stanford as they have a variety of courses regarding cultural heritage studies, ethics, indigenous rights etc, but of course they have zero funding for the MA in Anthropology. Basically, will going to University College London for a year and graduating with that debt be great for someone who is looking to work in the international heritage/NGO scene? Or am I better off getting the MA anywhere I can that is affordable? Are there any other funding options for US students wanting to get an MA in the UK, other than Fulbright and Marshall? For background, I have a BA in Anthropology from Berkeley, and I am a CA resident. Many many thanks for your words of wisdom on this tough decision! Any school suggestions or funding suggestions are welcome.
  6. 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.
