Hey.
Can someone please help me with a question?
Background
I have a pretty clever daughter. She’s great at maths and loves it. She was offered a place with a top uni - similar to Oxford 😜 however due to various reasons turned the offer down as it wasn’t the right time for her .
She’s doing a 3 year bachelors at a RG uni and going into her second year.
Her next plan is a PHD however she does not want to swap to a masters on her current course as it means she has to drop her language - she is majoring in maths with a minor in mandarin.....
After a little research we believe that it would be possible to apply to do a DPhil with Oxford so long as she gets a first in her current uni course?
If she is eligible would she need to apply next year 2019?
Hope this makes sense!
Can someone please help a mum with no idea 😜
Thank you x

It's possible to go into a doctoral course without a master's, and the only way to really find out is to apply.

But I wouldn't expect to be accepted. Oxford is somewhere where you can still master's students who already hold other master's degrees and even doctorates.

"Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in mathematics or a related discipline." - Oxford course webpage on DPhil in Mathematics

"A previous master's degree is not required, though the requirement for a first-class undergraduate degree with honours can be alternatively demonstrated by strong performance in a master's degree." - Oxford course webpage on DPhil in Mathematics

From reading the course entry requirements on the University's website it means she is eligible and won't need a master's degree. If she wants to start the DPhil in 2019 then yes she will have to apply when applications open on 3rd September 2018.
