    Hello!

    I study at King's College London and I was wondering what my possibilities are for a master's degree at universities of prestige such as Oxford & Cambridge? Apart from my academic grades, will my institution improve my chances as King's is a good university (I suppose)? Or are there far more factors to be taken into account? Thank you!

    They'll look at the transcript. So it's important that you did enough relevant modules in your degree programme for the course you want to study.

    There is also the quality of your application to consider and your reference.

    You may also need to provide some written work if applying for a humanities masters.

    Abramovic, are you choosing these universities solely because of their 'prestige'?
