Interviews are not normally held as part of the admissions process for the MSt programme. Assessors may get in touch with an applicant directly via email in case of any queries, but this is rare.

For the DPhil programme, interviews may be arranged for some doctoral applicants as part of the admissions process. Interviews can take place in person, or via telephone or Skype, if travel to Oxford would not be convenient.

 

 

Applicants whose native language is not English must submit their language test results. For details please see the following page of the University website:
