What are people's backgrounds? When do you think offers will come out? What other courses have you applied to?

Any past or current students happy to share their experience on the course?

How did you guys get on? I was fortunate to be offered a place but I think I'm going to decline it for another offer (unless miraculous funding appears).

Hope you got what you wanted!

That's great, London is an exciting place to be! I saw that you posted about mental health studies in another thread, mental health policy is an area I hope to go into so would be interested to hear your career goals if you feel comfortable sharing. Best of luck with your course!

I want to develop intervention programs particularly for those who’ve dealt with significant trauma & helping them reintegrate into society those struggling with addiction & survivors of trafficking are who I hope to focus on!

hey guys, i'm debating wether to apply to this or criminology. I currently study criminology so I would like to do something different but the cost is a bit higher than criminology so I am unsure. How are most of you funding this?

Is there any EBSIPE applicant for the March deadline here? Did you notice the upload button disappeared at some time point?

Hi just found this thread I'm being re-evaluated against March applicants and my button is still very much there...do you know if the department is going to take the full 8-10 weeks to make a decision on March applications?

Hi, I'm a Comparative social policy applicant (March deadline). Both courses are in the same department, so I think their processes might be similar. I've just checked the portal and my button has disappeared too! I thought we wouldn't be getting a decision until late April-May... I think I'm gonna get the 2 am email soon

The disappearance of my upload button means that the final decision has been made. But I don't know whether it is a rejection or acceptance. The deadline for informing the March Applicants they give to me is 14th April. I feel very surprised that they had made my decision so quickly. I think it will take longer for the admission committee to make decisions for those students on the waitlist. Maybe the last few days to this deadline.

No need to be pessimistic about this. Actually, I think that is a good sign. Because for oxford, they usually made decisions for acceptance first.

I applied to three and got offered two. I wasn't sure at first either but now I think you've got nothing to lose! Good luck!

Hi all! I got waitlisted two days ago and am wondering if anyone has any info on the waitlist process? How many people are stuck on here with me for example... Additionally, I was thinking of submitting a letter of continued interest to the admissions committee to update them on what i've been doing since I applied in October. Does Oxford typically frown upon that, or would it be neutral to my chances at the very worst?
