    Anyone getting an application ready for these courses (or the MPhil Finance)?

    Profile: BSc (Econ) Financial Economics (London) 1st Class already achieved this July. Good quant/econometrics with 1sts. Some relevant econ/finance internships (GES).

    Good luck everyone.

    Hello!

    Has anyone here applied for Mphil in Finance and Econonomics? There seems to be a discussion every year but for some reason not for 2017/18 admission.

    I've applied end of January and a few days ago my status changed to 'Under consideration by Degree Committee'. Anyone out there who already got an offer?

    Wow, someone replied to my thread!

    I got my offer for MPhil F&E in mid Jan, and have been accepted to Hughes Hall. I applied in September. One of my undergrad course mates is currently on this year's intake. BSc (Econ) Financial Economics, Birkbeck University of London, graduated last July, 1st honours.

    A couple of people from UCL and I think Warwick also got offers around Jan. It is definitely tough getting a place as the past threads indicate. So many strong applicants.

    Best of luck, if you applied in Jan I honestly wouldn't expect to hear back until March/April. They are quite slow with this course.

    I received this email yesterday and not really sure what that exactly means

    Dear xxxx,

    I am contacting you to update you on the status of your application.

    Our Admissions Committee has considered your application and at this
    stage no final decision has been made. Your application has, therefore,
    been put on hold until all the MPhil applications have been assessed.
    Once this has been done all applications that are on hold will be
    reconsidered and a final decision made – this will be during
    March/April. I will contact you by e-mail if we are going to make you
    an offer, but please also keep a check on your CamSIS self-service page
    for the status of your application.

    I guess that happens to most of the candidates who are in the middle position. Some sort of waitlist.
    May I ask if you are applying for Mphil in F & E? Also curious to know when did you apply?

    I think, it's a good signal as we are still not rejected. So there is still hope!
    Good luck to you too.
