Hi!

I want to apply to Oxford (possibly, Cambridge too) for a DPhil but by BA is from a university abroad and MA is from St Andrews. I haven't seen a lot of people getting into Oxbridge for a DPhil without a previous Oxbridge degree so feeling slightly disheartened... Is it worth a shot? Do people get in from other universities? Just really interested in hearing where successful DPhil candidates have gotten their previous degrees from.

Both Oxford and Cambridge have a global student cohort. PhD students come from everywhere. Just look through some PhD student lists - over 60% of PG students are overseas. Oxbridge UGs are by far the minority.
