Has anyone applied to the MSt in Art History and Visual Culture for 2020-1? I just submitted my application. There doesn't seem to be too many of us around.

For those of you who did this program at Oxford, what was it like?

Check out the oxford postgraduate applicants thread - you might have more luck there.

p.s. only two of my referees were submitted on time and the third one is still ignoring me... I read from the course webpage that they will start review my application with two references and they will contact me if a third one is needed. So I am assuming that I don't need to chase down my third referee until the admission team asks me?..

Hi! I applied for the same thing! With any luck we'll see each other there (fingers crossed.) As far as the reference letter, I did read that you could submit with two references but you can't get a decision until the third one is submitted, so I think you'll be fine (I had to chase down the third reference too.)

Good luck, hope you get in!

I enjoyed it! I did not find that the teaching component of the course really impacted on your essays/ dissertation that much so I would say the course does encourage independent research. People's experience of the course really depended on their tutor/course leader so I would definitely ask around before you pick. I have found career prospect to be alright - Oxford definitely helps if you want to venture out of the art-world. If you are committed to a career in history of art I think an institution like the Courtauld has the same (if not better) reputation.

Does anyone have any idea when we might hear? Other departments seem to know when the department should send out letters?

No clue, I haven't seen anything as far as a potential date. I've been refreshing GradCafe like mad with no luck
