    Hi,

    Basically before I came to uni I really liked the idea of studying Human Sciences at Oxford. However I was never able to apply there, my predicted grades weren't even close! However since coming to uni, my grades have improved dramatically. I wondered if anyone had any suggestions about postgrad courses that are in the similar areas to the undergrad course, as I can't seem to find any.

    Thank you so much

    I'm actually studying Biochemistry at the moment, I study at a lower ranked uni but the course is accredited.

    If you cant find any post grad courses at Oxford that interest you then you might need to consider other universities. You are better off find a course that interests you rather than finding a university that you like and picking a course that might be close to what you want to study.

    The course(s) in Medical Anthropology might appeal? But I would echo the caution about this. My daughter is currently doing a Master's at Oxford; although the teaching and the opportunities are superb, the workload is very heavy and the fees are wince-inducing. (£17,000 for one year - excluding accommodation).

    At this stage, decide on the career you would like to pursue and/or what further study most interests you; only then look for the best place to do it.

    Thank you, I was just wondering what courses people normally follow from doing that course. I am aware I should go with the course and not the uni but thanks for reminding me.

    My advice would be to think about what you want to do with a degree/masters before you decide what subject.
