Hi Ribben,

You should watch your language. Persons from African countries ARE NOT exceptionally needy. There are exceptionally needy people everywhere in the world, including your home country. You have no right to assume that "exceptional need" is the exclusive preserve of Africans. SMH

Thank you.


No need to get on your horse. What I mean by "exceptionally needy" is that for the average person coming from African countries it is impossible to pay the tuition fee without some kind of help. Don't get me wrong, the tuition fees are really high, even for us Europeans, but at least our wages are high enough that anyone who works for a couple of years, saves well and is able to loan some money on the side should be able to pay the costs. The average wage in 90% of Africa though is so low that you would have to save an overly long period of time, I'm talking years and years, before even coming close to it.

I went on an exchange two years ago to South Africa for my PhD research, and my PhD grant was larger than how much the law professors there were making.

So yeah I stand by my assessment that _generally speaking_ Africans would need a form of government or institutional aid to be able to cover the costs, while for us Europeans in high income countries, it is still hard, but not impossible.

Have a nice day!



How typical for one of Leopold's belgium peasants to generalize Africa as poor. Rubin, studying in South Africa 2 years ago and coming to the realization that you made more than a professor does not give you the right to assume that the rest of Africa is poor nor come up with some stupid false information that 90% earn worthless income. That's like me saying that I visited Brussels 8 times and was disgusted by the increase of homelessness in the center park, so I am going to make up a fact that 80% of europeans are needy beggars because I make more money than the average flanders. I know Nigerians that could buy you and your family, so don't be stupid and don't generalize. Most importantly, don't attempt to make enemies before the LL.M begins, considering that we get admitted. This website is not for the ignorant nor stupid, offensive comments, so keep that horrible thought to yourself. The fact that you seek assistance from your government makes you needy, based on POOR situation and lack of finance. Oh, my bad, I assumed that the costs of living was identical all around the world and that you could easily work for a few months and earn the money needed for the LLM just like me.

You might want to sell that Horse to finance your ll.m, because I hear that people from Belgium are needy and cant afford to pay for the LL.M, so they depend on their government.

Grow TF up and have keep the change!

It's hard to believe what kind of pointless discussions some people start here. Just because you want to believe - for whatever reasons - that all people have the same opportunities, this is far from being the case.

I do not believe that anyone here has the intention of devaluing Africans in general. But it is a fact, and not a question of experience, that, for example, 19 of the 23 poorest countries are in Africa. (Of course, this does not exclude that there are also wealthy Africans)

I can also gladly do without commentaries that are not able to discuss this objectively. It is one thing if you think otherwise, but another question is whether you want to forbid someone's mouth; not to mention insults.

Africa is poor for a reason and it not by choice, but due the impact and continuous influence of colonization and exploitation. However, I understand and agree to your point to an extent. Hopefully we can debate properly in Cambridge, until then lets focus this discussion on the application process

Heya--I doubt it, as the website states that consideration by Degree Committee is a thing. However, they may have changed the duration for each assessment process.

Decided to sign up having trawled through the 17/18 topic on application (yes, all 70 odd pages).

It seems our application process is very different from last years - at this point everyone was very antsy about being 'Forever UCDC', whilst for us it seems we haven't left 'under review by department'.

Last years process seemed chaotic, and I would imagine that Cambridge has made a few changes (likely to avoid the poor staff dealing with endless applicant calls).

It might well be the case that we will simply jump from our current position to BoGS or receiving offers.

Hey everyone,

I applied to Cambridge on a whim (have a first class honours LLB from a top 250 university and one years experience as a lecturers assistant).

I know this may be a case of cart before the horse, but how does everyone plan to fund their degree if successful? I am holding out hope for some sort of scholarship or else I may not be able to attend.

Eoin.


Are you in the UK? I’m probably going to use the postgraduate loan from the govt and self fund the rest.
