English Language Requirements QMUL


OksanaR

Next academic year (2021-2022) I intend to enrol in the Comparative and International Dispute Resolution LLM course at Queen Mary University of London. However, I do not entirely meet the English language requirements. My IELTS Academic results are: overall band score - 7.5, listening - 8, reading - 8.5, writing - 6.5, speaking - 6.5. Given these results, can I still enrol in the course? The university requires the overall min score 7.5, but there should not be sections less than 7, however my writing and speaking are 6.5.
And, is IELTS Academic acceptable for the UK?

Thank you!

chicken so...

I mean, shouldn't you at least meet the requirements if you plan to apply for the program?

It's not a given that you'll be accepted - this is a competitive program at a world-class law school. Certainly you'll want to at lest meet their requirements. I would imagine this is especially important this application cycle, given how many applicants deferred their applications or changed their plans in the last round.

hi! I was admitted to QMUL last year (I didn’t accept my offer because of personal circumstances). I had overall 8 and 7 in writing and speaking. I know that those minimum requirements are followed by QMUL and only if you are really lucky you’ll get a conditional offer - they’ll expect you to retake the test.
My advice is: prepare a bit more, retake the test and don’t risk a rejection! You still have some time :)

An essay should have a single clear central idea. Each paragraph should have a clear main point or topic sentence.


DEVELOPMENT
Each paragraph should support or expand the central idea of the paper. The idea of each paragraph should be explained and illustrated through examples, details, and descriptions.

UNITY
Every paragraph in an essay should be related to the main idea. Each paragraph should stick to its main point.

COHERENCE
An essay or paper should be organized logically, flow smoothly, and "stick" together. In other words, everything in the perfect essay writing should make sense to a reader.

CORRECTNESS
A paper should be written in generally correct standard English, with complete sentences, and be relatively error-free.
