is there a difference in the MSt postgraduate qualification at oxford and cambridge? along with (i think) the MEd, the MSt at Cambridge seems to be treated more as a higher-education qualification, and is only part-time.
at oxford, it seems as viable to undertake a taught MSt as an MPhil, whereas at cambridge the MPhil seems to be the central and all-conquering masters program.

In the specific case of the MSt in International Relations at Cambridge, we were told that it was some quirk of the Cambridge degree authorising system that, although the MSt and MPhil were near identical, the MSt had to be so named because it was a part time course. The Continuing Education people could give you the exact facts on the difference between the MSt and the MPhil at Cambridge.
