Hi, has anyone heard back from the Social Anth Mphil at Cambridge? I've applied by the 7th of January deadline and it still states "under review by department" on my portal

I think responded to you on the general thread. I also applied by the January deadline and received my offer during February 3rd with a college placement. Although I also have offers from the MSc/Mphil Oxford Social Anthropology. My decision will be based partly on funding... I’m still trying to see which would be better for study.

I was surprised it was that fast. Hopefully I get funding and decide sooner! Please keep me up to date in your process!

Hi guys,

I heard back two days ago and have been put on the waiting list. Annoyingly, I won't be able to find out until the end of May and have already hated waiting this long! I've currently got offers from LSE, UCL, SOAS & Sussex and will now need to accept one and then, if accepted to Cambridge in May, renegede on my offer. Hopefully this won't be a problem. Is anyone here on the waiting list or does anyone know someone who has been placed on it? I'd quite like to know how good a chance I have.

Happy Easter

Oh my, I’m so sorry. I know how excruciating the wait is and how hard you must have worked. Do you have any other plans and school offers?

I’m basing mine on funding and faculty. What about you?

Funding as well, but I did anthropology in my undergraduate degree so i don't think oxford will be as suited for me, but wondered what others thought on the course content!

Ah that’s interesting! My undergrad was in sociology but took 2-3 anthropology courses. In general, I found both Oxford and Cambridge courses suitable. I’m curious as to what is different about Cambridge courses or faculty that makes it a favoured destination for you?

I've got an offer to study socio-cultural Anthropology at Durham, I'm waiting on UCL for Digital Anthropology and on LSE for the MSc Gender. Do you think you could send me your personal statement by any chance? I'm planning on reapplying to Cambridge next year and I'd like to see what it takes to get in. (PS: I'm an undergrad at Oxford uni)
