The Said scholarship decisions will be sent out via email by the end of this week, if you don’t get an email then I’m afraid you didn’t get a scholarship.

Hey all,

I received the Oxford admit as well. Congrats to all you guys! I hope we end up meeting :)

My biggest concern is post MBA job opportunities in the UK for Indian students, considering that the visa will expire quite quickly.

I plan to write to the admissions team asking for stats, like how many students managed to land a job in UK/EU region via campus placement from Oxford. Additionally, I plan to talk to as many Indian Oxford graduates as possible - those who managed to get a job and those who didn't. Combined with stats, this will give us some perspective. I will get back to you guys with this info as soon as I know. Will post it here.

Let's crowd source as much as possible to make more informed decisions. Please share conversations or insight that you might have that can benefit us all. With a broad network, we can crowd source more relevant info.

Finance wise - I will be taking up Prodigy Financing to cover my tuition fees. Anyone else taking up the same?

Feel free to message me and exchange numbers, I'd love to have a conversation to discuss similar concerns. Sooner the better :)

Regards,
Avinash Satish
Chennai, India

P.S : There's a webinar on 28th October, 9:30 - 10 pm IST to address - how to confirm your Oxford place, colleges and accommodation. There's a registration link at the bottom of the mail sent by Alex Macknamara from Oxford.


UPDATE

Post MBA Job opportunities - I spoke to a student from India, who recently graduated this September. Her aim was to work in grass-root India on educational projects, so after graduation she came back home to look for jobs. All her peers seeking employment in the UK are in the process of job hunting through campus placement. Majority get into consulting in her opinion, and those with prior experience seem to stand a better chance of getting company sponsored work visas. Having said that, she said there's plenty of opportunity to learn the ropes of consulting by becoming an active member in the student clubs. She also said that it was possible to begin job hunting as early as June. The Strategy Consulting Project has 2 credits and is not mandatory. You can opt out of it by taking 2 elective courses and completing them before June. Alternatively, you can also land an internship using your personal network during this period. But internships have no credits.

I also wrote to the career services team asking for stats by region - how many Indian students landed jobs through campus placements for '13-14, 12-13 batches

This was their reply :
'We are still pulling the employment report for the 2014-15 classes together so unfortunately I am not able to supply this information (as mentioned in your email). As for the previous classes, all reports are available on the Oxford Saïd website and here are the links below:

2012-13 report http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/sites/default/files/Degrees/MBA/Docs/mba-interim-employment-report-aug2014-v2.pdf

I hope we find out soon - it matters so much. Because such big numbers are often discussed, we lose perspective about how much we are actually talking about here. Even £5k is a lot of money especially given that this must be paid after tax and with interest (if, like me, you'll be getting a loan).

That worked, thanks! Got a month's extension to scout for loans and get an approval for it. Should hear/not hear about scholarship decision (for R1) in the next hour or so.

Anyone travelling to Oxford for the MBA experience weekend (6th November)?

avinash that's a really great initiative! Would be really great to have that info. I have a small piece of information to add - 8 Indian students were offered positions at Amazon this year. Heard this from a current student, haven't verified from the adcom or career services!



Hello,
I am going to Oxford for MBA experience weekend. Although, was there two weeks ago for an interview.

Anyone else here participated in last night's chat with Peter Tufano?

Little worried after reading about alumni's recent review on Said on this site, plus the 2016 ranking - I wonder how much has changed since 2012 when the ranking of 2016 was based on. Can't wait to chat with the current students in upcoming weeks.

Just wanted to clarify that FT ranking is based on data from all of the past three years and not just from three years ago.

Full article available to read here: http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/2/670594de ... z3yqfVM4AW.

The post above mine talks about how much has changed from the conditions described ca. 2012-13 in the review posted here: http://gmatclub.com/reviews/comments/ox ... -345350478

Have emailed the career services team to ask about non-EU students' in general. I think my email will meet similar fate of no response that is.
