Haha I was happy to help in opening one!

Thanks for sharing the links! It seems like last year many applicants got offers without being interviewed (you can check GradCafe - https://www.thegradcafe.com/survey/?per_page=20&q=&institution=University+of+Oxford&program=Computer+Science&degree=Masters)

But I guess we will hear very soon about interviews (if any). I read that sometimes the interview is behavioral and sometimes super technical.

Thanks for the invite guys, anxious to hear back - I emailed admissions and they said they are making offers from this week onwards for the MSc Advanced Computer Science. I've also heard of people not having to interview/very basic behavioural interviews being given so fingers crossed for all of us!

First congratulations and good luck!! Do you mind sharing a little bit about your background (degree, University, grades, research, and when you applied?)

Thanks!

Thank you!! I am in my fourth year of BSc in CS and submitted the application before December. I didn't have any research experience but worked for one year in the industry.

Fantastic news! Do let us know how the interview goes, hopefully you do well and get in. I’m crossing everything but the wait has been killing me. I have a high first but my Uni isn’t too highly ranked - neither russell group nor ex-poly so it’s bang in the middle around 30th.. Hoping this doesn’t affect my chances of getting in

Hey guys! Great to see a thread for the MSc in Adv Computer Science program :smile:
I had a query. Do all the interview invites come out on a single day or can we hope to get one anytime during this and the next week? Thanks!
