Good luck!

I applied during the beginning of November with an engineering and building management educational background (1st-Class) . I have few years of consulting work experience.

I applied on the 20th of Dec, and it's not under review yet - i guess it's because of the Christmas break.

Background: UCL BSc Economics and Geography (Specialise in Economics & Geographic Data Science); Weighted average 73 (top 20% in both dept); had experience in quantitative research and programming; UCL Academic Representative; UCL Transition mentor; UCL School of Management Research Assistant; wealth management w/ a Real Estate project; Investment Banking PTA; 2 LSE Summer Schools (Finance & Econometrics).

I previously got waitlisted by MPhil Technology Policy... I heard REF is even harder to get in

Yes! I submitted a research proposal but it sounds like many applicants from previous cycles didn’t submit one.

I see! I had an interview for TP the same week as you and received a conditional offer couple of weeks back. REF does look much more competitive with double the applicants, but you have a strong relevant background - i wish you all the best in both your applications

Nah, don't think that they do interviews for REF. He was referring to MPhil in Technology Policy

Hi all,

I would very like to put an application for the MPHIL REF programme.

I am a final year Accounting student at a Russell Group University. My second year average is 69.6%, I am on track to hopefully graduate with a first.

I have worked for an SME property company, have work experience in venture capital and have done some volunteering.

Do I stand a chance in receiving an offer?
& Any personal statement tips will be much appreciated

Hi, when did your status change from submitted to under review by the department? I submitted on 12.20 but it is still not being moved to under review by department?
