"I graduated in history from St. Stephen's College, where our course material stopped at 1947. In that sense, the MSc at Oxford was a logical continuation of my study and passion towards Indian history. The course picked up from where we left at the UG level. At Oxford, I had the opportunity to be taught by a diverse and dedicated faculty that devoted great time and resources in making every module interesting and intellectually enriching. The discussions with faculty and peers were equally enriching. I took back enhanced writing skills during my stay in Oxford- things that seem simple but things many of us did not posses in plenty such as how to present a strong argument, referencing, substantiating an argument with facts and theory. The reading list which we were given was all encompassing.
I thought the MSc remained an ideal course for Indian as well as non-Indian students who want to pursue academic study about India or want to work in India either in the policy or academic world."
