could anybody give me some general information about these as i found the oxford site quite unhelpful, it's more specific's such as funding i'm after, differences between pg and ug if anyone has any experience of this yet

just general comments really, competitiveness trying to get on them etc

*Absolutely* everything varies...you need to be waaaaay more specific, only then will you get any meaningful response.

hehe okay:
-funding, costs
-difficulty getting into (applicants per place, standards, anything that would benefit me in applying)
-pg experience of uni, relations with ug's and general uni life
-accomodation-do you stay in halls or are you expected to find your own accomodation
-are you given much support from the uni?

i think that will do, help?

oh and do they give preference to applicants from their own uni's or do they claim to be unbiased? (i'm at notts)

When it comes to PG courses and funding http://www.prospects.ac.uk is a great help - it gives potential funding sources for both PGR and PGT (research and taught) courses especially where there is potential funding from a reseach council...it's also a good place to get a clearer idea about PG student life etc etc.

Depends on *what* you want to study. It can get very very competitive at those Universities. Those are the only three competitive grad schools. In a lot of the popular departments at Oxbridge, LSE....there's no change without a first class honours.

Yes, massive university preference, they DO prefer their own, however othe universities of comparable quality are given priority too.
