How much the previous university's prestige matters for a phd enrollment?


User: ancienthistory - 29 August 2017 23:29

Hi everyones, I'd like to apply for a PhD in Ancient History at Oxford in the future.
Currently I'm planning to apply for a ResMa in Ancient History at Leiden university, in the Netherlands, which is thaught in English.
Is it a recognised uni for classics in UK or the US or should I do a British university instead, such as Durham, Mancester, UCL, St Andrews and so on to have better possibilities to be taken at Oxford?
Thank you all!

In my opinion it matters less where you study and more about what you do when you are there.
I would stop worrying about rankings and focus more on what each university can offer you while you are there.
You risk going into this with the wrong mindset.
