I sent them a message through their website yesterday asking for an update, given that decisions were made ostensibly by March 1st and the PAO office is currently processing decisions that entered their work stream three weeks after that... not confident that I'll get a response to that before we get decisions, but I will keep you all posted!

Hello all! I ticked yes at the check-box which asked if I’d want to be considered for Cambridge trust scholarships. But I didn’t make any separate applications ( I believe Cambridge shared scholarship needs to make one). Will I still be considered for some awards? Thanks so much in advance! And sorry if this has already been answered/ discussed before. 


You will be considered for anything you're eligible for by merely ticking the box, yes. However, there are not too many Trust scholarships around for the LLM,  as it is the law fac's cash cow, after all (like everywhere else). I can't remember exactly how many you're supposed to be in the end at the top of my head (think it was some 180 or so?), but they only have trust funding for some 10-15 or so, and only some of them are full scholarships. The rest is largely just some relatively minor contributions from college scholarships. At some point fairly late in the process the faculty itself will also have some bursaries to hand out, but they're also fairly tiny.

Don't lose hope. I just received conditional offer 2 hours ago.

Hi all. Is anyone else a bit disappointed with the paper offering for next academic year? Looks like Cambridge have cut a bunch of extremely popular commercial law papers (Advanced Private Law, Commercial Litigation, Economics of Law and Regulation, Transactional Law, International IP) are all not running.

Yes, a lot of the core courses are missing.  Unless the faculty adds extra papers, the options for commercial lawyers are severely lacking.

Yes, I'm disappointed too... My main interest is in commercial law, and there isn't any paper in that area this year! DO you think they will add more papers? Personally, I don't think that's likely, but you never know...

Most likely not any more papers for this year. Several of these subjects were cut due to the retirement of senior academics this year or last year who they could not get a replacement for in time. The law faculty has started a rather significant recruitment process for some 15 or so (I think it was) new staff, but from my understanding, they don't expect subjects such as int com lit to be revived before the 2024//2025 acad year.

where did you hear that there are no prospects of adding extra courses? It might make sense to email them about this, Cambridge must have some lectures capable of doing these sorts of papers.  A complete lack of commercial litigation papers would be quite disappointing for a lot of people.

To those more familiar with the British education system, how do Cambridge’s graduate degree classifications work? I know that for British undergrad degrees, you have designations like “first”, “upper second”, etc. Will we as graduate students have similar distinctions or is it merely pass or fail?

I agree with you! My guess is that they are still in the process of finding lecturers for the next academic year. So if a lot of people write to them signalling their interest in commercial litigation, maybe that will have an impact? I hope at least.
