If you have your eye on a PhD, then a taught MA is always valuable as, unlike those who go straight from an undergraduate degree to doctoral study, the department you apply to will be well aware of the additional research preparation and skills which is a vital part of any taught MA course.

Oxford style, actually.
And you should care, if I was hiring and someone had put ph.D on their CV instead of writing it properly I'd put the CV straight in the bin. Plus, think of the person who has to read your dissertation

Right. So, sorry, I don't care what you reckon you would do to my cv, because in the real world any decent professor would never let some pencil pusher decide off their own bat that an applicant is "****" and throw the cv in the bin just because they didn't put a full stop in their PhD.
She refers to Ph.D as Oxford style. It may be the house style of Oxford University Press; I do not know. It is certainly not the house style of Oxford University which prefers PhD. See
