Cambridge LL.M. Applicants 2023-2024


Hi, 
So did someone else notice that para-jumps/spaces were removed in the pdf of submitted application? I intentionally left characters to give some space after each para, but when I downloaded my as-submitted application, all spaces had been removed and the whole thing kinda looked like one huge paragraph. Please say that it wasn't just me?!  1f625


It wasn't just you. It happened to me too. I tried to fix it multiple times before submitting, but there was nothing else I could do.


Also happened to me. Hopefully, they focus on the portal and not the pdf preview.

Does anyone know how long it took for people to receive offers last year? How many months since applications were submitted?

Bit optimistic to assume you'll hear something by February at the latest. Their 'top' candidates will often receive their offers a bit earlier than the rest, which would be around mid Feb (in which case they might move to PAO on their portal as early as the beginning of February). The majority won't move to PAO until the beginning of March or so, with conditional offers arriving around mid-March. Everything is of course subject to the various delays that are not too uncommon due to periods of industrial action that I would expect to still take place next year. 

As a comment to the 'under review by department' status: The move from 'submitted' to 'under review' really is as insignificant as it can ever get. It has absolutely no bearing on how early you will receive an offer. People can move straight from 'submitted' to 'conditional offer made' for that matter, if someone forgot to update your status in the system. 

I think most with the self dicipline to do so find it much easier on their 'applicant anxiety' to distance themselves from the portal and not check it until March or so. Then the application process won't consume your life, as it has done for so many. All communication (offer made, whether the uni needs additional information, etc) will be sent to your email anyway, so in practice you never ever need to enter that application portal again once the application has been submitted. Even the registration portal once an offer is made is a different one which you can *only* access through email instructions. That info is not provided on the applicant portal, making it quite useless after submission.

For what it’s worth, previous years’ threads have discussed the degree committee meeting dates (which are here: https://www.cambridgestudents.cam.ac.uk/files/pc_and_dc_meeting_dates_2022-2023.pdf)

It’s possible that people will start moving to PAO stage soon after the degree committee meets on 19 Jan or 9 Feb?

Yeah so has mine. I don't really think it means much though. Like the person said a few posts up, you're better off trying to put it out of your mind until at least 1st March 2023.  

Some poor applicants didn't receive a decision on their application until April last year :/

I guess they are beginning to process the applications in alphabetical order. My surname starts with Y and my application is still shown as submitted. Sit back and relax, there's nothing to worry for now.

Mine is showing as under review now - could have been any time in the last week as I checked it last on Monday I think. My final reference landed on 30 November and my surname begins with H.

Did everyone receive an email from the postgraduate admissions office regarding funding applications shortly after their application moved to under review?

I think so. It's an automated message. I believe everyone gets it. Did anyone get a mail regarding the confirmation on their commonwealth scholarship application?
