Which college? :smile: You will have no social life, as the course is so intensive. Also, there is less student debt with Cambridge 9 months MPhil. Moreover, you have a better degree programme structure at Cambridge than the specialised Classical Archaeology at Oxford.

But Oxford has something special, that Cambridge does not. It is I love the 1+1 Oxford MBA/Master's programme: It is amazing to be able to be accepted on the MBA and also a Master's course too. You do the Master's course in 1 year and are guaranteed accommodation and then year 2 is the MBA course in 1 year and once again you're guaranteed accommodation. Also, you only need 2 years of work experience, unlike the Executive MBA, where you require 5 years or more work experience.
Thank you! I also think Ox course structure is too specialised lol
More likely to depend on the college than the university - one thing worth considering is that Oxford is a much larger city than Cambridge, so if you don't get to live in college, it may be easier to find private accommodation there.

Go for the course which is best for you, though - the perfect accommodation is secondary.
Thank you you're right(I was just concerned about the budget lol

The Cambridge MPhil is much better and more respected globally as well. :smile: Also, it is 9 months and less debt too. I wonder which Cambridge University college you're applying to for accommodation? :s-smilie:

Probably Newnham, I like its new cottages and its close to the faculty and museum but for PG the college isn't that important right?

Newnham College, Cambridge University is a great choice, as you won't be 'distracted' by any potential lovers?! :biggrin: lol But you will socialise with other friends on your course in the Classics faculty, so all is good. :smile:
Or maybe I'll find my potential lover at Newnham? LAMO:thumbsup:
