    The MSt in Modern Languages is designed to allow those who have a high level of attainment in a foreign language, and have studied literature to a degree level, to undertake more advanced work. The MSt in Modern Languages is suitable both for candidates wishing to proceed to a research degree and for those who wish to spend only one year at Oxford.

    The MSt in Modern Languages allows you to undertake advanced work in one for two literatures, working in Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, or Modern Literary Studies. The degree comprises three components:

    • two special subject options  
    • a theoretical or methodological component
    • a dissertation of not more than 12,000 words

    If you wish to proceed to a research degree, the MSt will allow you to work towards the identification of a precise thesis subject and to gather research materials. This degree is also suitable if you do not wish to proceed to a research degree, as it enables you to build upon your undergraduate studies and acquire some knowledge of literary theory.

    You may choose to pursue a single language or study two literatures, including English, comparatively. You may also follow programmes in European Enlightenment, cultural studies, or medieval literatures. 


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in the relevant modern language for their proposed study, or a similar course of academic study with substantial course components in the area of the modern language to be studied. Degree level competence in at least one modern language is a requirement for admission.

    Entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a high first-class degree or the equivalent.

    For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.75 out of 4.0.

    If you hold non-UK qualifications and wish to check how your qualifications match these requirements, you can contact the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).

    No Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or GMAT scores are sought.
