What time in February? Late, I assume?

Also, I didn't think this course interviewed? Do they?
I remember reading somewhere that someone called the department to ask about this and they said they only interview part-time applicants. But the official page says otherwise, so not sure.

And some said only those with unclear research interest. But we never know.

Good luck, guys. I’m waiting for an answer as well. However, I think that they’ll only reply at late March.

Out of curiosity, has anyone spoken with past students about the quality of the course?

Yep! I've spoken to two girls currently taking it, both enjoying it despite the ways it has had to be changed due to the pandemic (i.e limited number of people taking it in person etc).

Those who applied by January’s deadline: Has anyone received an invitation for an interview?

Yeah, according to the the “8-10 weeks” stated in the official site. But just really wanna know why so many other departments give out the decision faster than the said period lol 😂

But I believe that they will get back to the ones who are invited to the interview as late as early march. Otherwise, they won't be able to have the enough time to hold interviews

This is the guidance regarding interviews according to the course’s website. From what i’ve read from previous years, they tend to make decisions on admission without interviews, which honestly sucks a bit.

“Interviews may be held as part of the admissions process. If a student clearly exceeds all the admission criteria and their proposed research is innovative and can be supervised at the Oxford Internet Institute then they may be made an offer without an interview.

If an interview is required, it is normally held three to six weeks after the application deadline. There is usually only one interview held, which lasts up to 30 minutes and can be held via video conferencing software. You will be asked questions about research interests, interest in and qualification for the course, and why you think the Oxford Internet Institute would be the best place to conduct your studies.”

Ya but according to gradcafe over the past couple of years there’s been people who’ve received results by the end of Feb... curious to see whether the presumed increase of applicants this year changes that or not. Guess we’ll know soon 🤷🏻*♀️

Thank you for the update! I take it your friend applied by the Jan deadline? Did they apply for full- or part-time?

Thanks for sharing! From what I read for the Nov deadline, they were only interviewing students who had applied part-time. Did your friend also apply part time?

Yes! He applied for the part-time programme. I didn't know that information about the November interviews, thanks for sharing. Did you apply for the full-time program?

Anyone else applying to the part-time program? I did and I haven't received an invitation to interview yet, so I'm curious if I still have a chance.

So, from what I gather, only part-time applicants have been interviewed so far? Any interviews for full time?
