Gain some insight into Melis Anahtar's (class of 2008/09) experience of the MSc, by reading her MIT blog.

Or, hear from Natasha Malpani (class of 2009/10), who is featured in this video describing the academic life of an Oxford student.


Most of our alumni stay in touch, and there is an opportunity for new students to meet graduates of the course. Alumni still in Oxford will often mentor a new student over the course of the MSc. Some of the destinations they have gone on to include Oxford DPhils (a very popular route, attracting approximately 20% of students each year), PhDs at universities all over the world (a further 20%) and research assistant posts in Oxford. About 20% of each class has either returned to or begun medical school, in Oxford or elsewhere. Two of our alumni over the past eight years have gone into the teaching profession, and a number have gone into industry.

Returning to medicine:

Adam Dmytriw (2009/10) is a resident physician in the University of Toronto Diagnostic Radiology program. He has lead numerous research endeavours in diagnostic and interventional radiology, the results of which have been presented nationally and internationally. He credits the Integrated Immunology program with providing an invaluable foundation for his development, both with regards to understanding disease pathophysiology and in managing research projects.

Continuing on to a second Masters degree:

Hiral Sanghavi (2009/10): "I have now been given admission for a Masters in Management. I want to discover the management side of the biotech sector and eventually play a role of building a bridge between the two sectors of research and management respectively."

Beginning a DPhil:

 Ana Raykova (2009/10): "I am working in the Institute of Experimental Immunology at the University of Zurich with Prof. Christian Münz. My project is studying the defect in the humoral immune responses in mice with reconstituted human immune system components (huNSG mice)".
