Entry requirements

As a minimum, applicants should hold or be predicted to achieve the equivalent of the following UK qualifications: a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours in a social science subject. The MSc in Global Governance and Diplomacy is one of the most competitive master’s degrees in Oxford’s Social Sciences division. Selection happens on the basis of excellence. Almost all successful applicants have a first-class degree or equivalent. We value students with diverse academic backgrounds and are happy to consider students who have not specialised in a social science. Active diplomats are welcome to apply, although it should be noted that everyone competes for admission on equal terms with all other applicants. For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA normally sought is 3.8 out of 4.0.
