It's not so difficult to get into a Phd program at Oxford I believe, but why do you wanna do a phd now anyways? Not that it's a bad thing:mmm:

I think by going into a Phd will give me chance to study some area of maths like PDEs and stochastic calculus in deep.

I believe Oxford has a reputable community that would increase chances to meet and learn from reputable professors as well.

Why do you think it's bad thing ?

No, a phd is amazing not bad at all:no:
Just personal experience has taught me a lesson:mmm:, I'd rather I was a granny doing a phd, since you can do one whenever:woo:
Don't listen to me:mmm:

Depends if you want funding, that's usually hard to get. Otherwise it's usually whether at interview you demonstrate you are phd material or have a good/suitable proposal in my experience

Thanks Brit, do you mean by suitable proposal, a good research paper?

If you've got a published paper that can only help! I am not sure of the procedure at Oxford, but usually you will either have applied for a PhD position on a topic already decided or you will approach an appropriate supervisor and propose an area of research and usually submit a research proposal to their graduate school and they will decide whether it is worth it.

Thanks a lot Brit. That's very clear now.
