Also - does anyone else hold an offer from both Oxford and Cambridge for near-identical courses, and how are you choosing between them?
I have offers for the LLM at Cambridge and BCL at Oxford. I really don't know how I will choose between them, but if anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated! Sorry, this isn't a very helpful answer.

Hi all! I just received my offer yesterday - MPhil in Musicology! I'm an overseas student so I am quite concerned about funding. How do I find out if I am being considered for any type of scholarship (either from my department or from a college)? Should I just reach out to my department and ask? Wish they would let us know before our decision deadline

My friend started his DPhil at Wolfson this year and is really liking it. I went to visit for a formal dinner and it's a nice place (in terms of the position it has on the Isis) with modern accommodation. The flip side is that there's no history or real prestige to speak of as it's so new. It's also a little bit of a walk out of the city center but that's not necessarily a bad thing! I think it's all postgrads so the social scene should be good – everyone I met at formal was interesting, friendly and seemed pretty international. Decent brunch on Saturday mornings to help with hangovers...!

Was just offered a place for MSc in Sociology at 4:00pm London time, 9:00am PST. I also hold an offer from LSE Political Sociology and will be inquiring with Oxford Sociology regarding the options courses being offered to make my decision.

Congratulations!! I also received an offer for the MSc in Sociology yesterday around the same time. Did you have a college preference?

Hello all, just a quick question for Canadian applicants. What does a 2.1 or a first translate to in the Canadian system?

Hey, I'm a UK student currently doing my MA in Canada and I found this page on the McGill website helpful. https://www.mcgill.ca/gradapplicants...ly/equivalency I don't know if it'll vary from uni to uni though.

That's a relief to hear! I initially had my reservations due to Wolfson's location and general aesthetic but of course it would be absurd to turn down Oxford just because of a less than desirable college placement.

Exactly I think if you're realistic about what it's gonna be like – and aren't going into it expecting to live in a 13th Century quad – you'll love it. Most people end up really strongly identifying with their college and of course most teaching at graduate level is through your department anyway!

I received an email offer for an MPhil in Social Anthropology on the 13th March, and the official letter confirmation today. I'm still awaiting funding news from the Clarendon Scholarship - reading last years Oxford thread, I can see they usually meet and start to deliberate on these around now.

Wolfson's a more egalitarian outfit than some colleges, and the graduate students are more clearly and fully a priority there because they're the only students the college has. And the location means you can put in a day's work in the city centre and then put your work behind you and escape to the quieter and more spacious setting of the college, rather than living in the intense bubble of the centre twenty-four hours a day. There's a lot to be said for that!

I applied for St John's college, apparently it'll be 8-10 weeks before I hear back from them.

How does DPIR go about sending offers? Do they send acceptances first? As it is so late in the game and I have seen on Grad Cafe that many DPhil candidates did hear back, it naturally feels I don't stand a chance at this point. It seems like people who would be nominated for scholarships like Nuffield etc got their acceptances right away. Am I completely disillusioned? Please share any insights you might have

Hey, thank you. Yeah, I think it differs. I found this as well https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britis...classification

I'll probably be choosing based on funding or some non-relevant criteria like college placement...
- MPhil in International Relations
