Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could advise me on whether taking a dissertation in lieu of a taught subject is an option worth pursuing. I would be grateful if you could explain the process(at Cambridge) of choosing a topic, choosing a supervisor and any other information that would be helpful in making a decision.

I have done a dissertation during my undergraduate studies, but the difference is that I already knew what subject I was going to write on. I'm just afraid of picking something I do not really know and having to struggle to come to terms with the subject area.

hi..this is a deviation from the topic of discussion..but just needed little info from all of you. According to my self service page.. while I was recently accepted by a college...queens actually (anyone else admitted?)..my conditions of offer still lists college membership as a pending condition...

is there a time lag between the home page stating you are accepted in a college and the conditions page getting updated...I was planning to send across docs for the other conditions of my offer..but the cover sheet also contains college membership requirement...I have not received any official communication from my college yet..Am i supposed to provide written proof/ other docs in this regard to the university or the does the university and college communicate amongst themselves the info...

Thanks...


Indiana don't worry ... once you accepeted by the BGS you're in at Cambridge. Getting a place at a College is a formality.

More directly, yes there is a lag on the webpage etc. You'll get use to the slow Admin at Cambridge

I am deeply interested in EU law, so I am going to take four courses related to this field of law:
- External Relations Law of the European Union
- Contemporary Issues in the Law of European Integration
- Competition Law
- E.U. Trade Law

Does anyone have any comments concerning these subjects?


I know several students who took each course. My summary of their comments is as follows:

Dashwood is a wonderful guy and a legend in EC law. Everyone likes him. One of my friends described him as a "sweet old man."

EC trade is perhaps the most difficult course offered. You will learn a lot, but the reading load is extremely heavy, so expect to put in extraordinary effort. Not a class for the faint-hearted

Competition law is difficult but not impossible.
