There is a slack group for admitted students. You’ll receive the link from Oxford once you pay the deposit!

Please is there anyone that hasn’t heard back at all. I haven’t received any update( negative or positive). Nothing on my portal either. Is this normal?

Hi all.
Got admitted. But it is heartening to see others helping out others especially to those who didn’t. Congratulations to all admits and all the very best to others. I’m sure it’ll only be a start to something better. Stay happy and keep moving.

There’s an update on the portal where they’re asking for acceptance of offer and college preference. Any idea if choosing a college effects any college related funding?

Same question
And does accepting the offer right away changes scholarship chances (reduce?)

Hi Folks,

This post is not meant to discourage anyone from accepting the offer from the amazing Oxford Said.

I am writing this to check if anyone here wants to counter my thoughts here.

One of the main reason for me to do an MBA is to stay in the west as my US visa is expiring. I can get 50 lacs in India without the MBA. Now that I want to work in UK after the Said MBA program, I am seeing a ton of Indian Alums from Said Business school who are back in India. In fact majority of Alums are working in India if I trust my 2 hours of Linkedin research. Is this possibly because UK employers don’t sponsor work visas??

This makes me nervous about accepting an offer from a UK school given I have an offer from a Canadian one which offers 100% PR assurance as it is part of a PNP program.

Any thoughts?

I think you should get in touch with them and speak to them. There is a mix of people in India and UK (from my research on LinkedIn and speaking to people). So the reason may not be that employers in general are not sponsoring work visas. But then again it might be different for different industries. Hence, the best way to get an answer to your question is to speak to alums in the industry you want to recruit for.

­Yes! Look into Prodigy Finance if you're an international student.

I did, and also asked a few recipients. They are sharing mixed experiences. Do you have any direct personal experience with them?

Don’t, although they will offer you the money the term will not be favourable for you

it can go as high as 16-17%

maybe beyond that sometimes

Thank you for the information

Does anyone know if contacting the admission committee and telling them about a counter offer will accelerate the scholarship decision or not?

By counter offer I mean admissions offer from another top b-school

I don’t think so. Scholarship depends on multiple factor & profile not by persuading..

They informed that by 26 March it will be published
