With all the Brexit nonsense and associated uncertainty, in your place I would opt for Austria.

I suggest you check the definition of monogram: you should then be in a position to answer your own question.

The Open University have an MA in Music that's entirely online, but it's going to be withdrawn in a couple of years' time and the last chance to sign up for it is 20th September this year:

By my calculation, 75% in the dissertation would give you a Distinction overall, 45% would give you a Merit and 15% would give you a Pass. It seems silly to walk away with a Diploma and have to give £5000 back for the sake of scoring 15% in the dissertation.

For an international conference I attended last year, they specified that abstracts be one side of A4 at most. I've just checked the book of abstracts and the shortest was two and a half lines. Several others were between four and six lines and some filled the whole page. I'm sure your 220 words is sufficient.

If the worst comes to the worst and Oxbridge rejects your application, there's always Oxford Brookes or Anglia Ruskin.

Since a PhD is basically a training to do research and write up that research, the more you can demonstrate to the external examiner that you can do these, by having articles published, the better.

It makes their job easier if half the thesis has already been peer reviewed and I was always taught to make things easy for examiners.

Thread: How to answer "Why this institution?" when you "don't care" about the institution

My advice would be to simply tell the truth.

When asked why I wanted to come to my current university, my reply to the question "Why this "institution?" was simply that it's the closest to home (moving away is not an option) and the supervisor I wanted was interested in railways, like me. I knew nothing of the resources available.

I'm now in my third year and I seem to be doing okay.

I can't see what's wrong with your saying that you want to go to X University simply because you like the project offered and you want to work with Dr/Prof Y.
