Cambridge LLM 2017 - 2018 Applicants


LegalLife

Hi everyone,

I have a questions about colleges in Cambridge. On the website they mention that some of the colleges are wealthier than the others so are able to provide more scholarships. However I could not find to where I should look for that particular information. I would much appreciate if you can tell me some tips on this.

Thanks!

Hey guys, my name is Alfie (pretty obvious but I like to start off like that lool). I'm a third year law student at Lancaster University Ghana and I'm projected to graduate in July 2017. Lancaster Ghana is a branch campus of Lancaster University in the UK. I am studying a hybrid English and Ghanaian LL.B. However, my degree is awarded by Lancs UK and theoretically has the same value as it would if I had studied my modules in the UK. In my first and second years I was a first class scholar consistently ranked in the top 3 in my class and top five in the entire university. I intend to apply for the Cambridge 2017 llm (that why I'm on the page, you know. Lool) but I dunno what my chances realistically are especially considering the fact that it may be imperative that I get awarded a scholarship in order to fund my llm. So please please please is there anyone else in the same boat or anyone who has advice for me? And also, I'm not exactly sure if I have to write IELTS because I have a Cambridge O level certificate and I achieved an A in English language. Thanks Guys.


1. Your degree is technically awarded in Ghana and taught in Ghana. Therefore you are classified as an overseas student.

2. There is nothing like chances of getting into the LLM. Trust me, I know because I did the LLM. You just have to apply and give it your best shot if you truly want it. Get strong referees and strong personal statement and you will be okay, even without a first class degree as long as you are ranked in top 1%.

3. Not everyone has to write IELTS. Look at the list of countries for the English language and see where Ghana is classified. It doesnt matter what you got in English in O-level or High School. Infact, no one will ask you for those grades at any point in the process. After seeing if Ghana falls under the countries that have to do the Cambridge Language Assessment Test, then you upload the "No current language test form". When you are admitted, then Cambridge will subject you to a free online and telephone call English interview to assess your English.

HI legallife. Thank you for your reply. I think I would be regarded as an overseas student for tuition purposes regardless of where my degree is awarded as I do not hold an EU passport. Nonetheless, my degree would be awarded by Lancs UK and my certificate would bear no allusion to the fact that studied in Ghana. Only my transcript would indicate where my modules were taken.

Also about the referees. I'm wondering whether or not it matters that my referee has a PhD. I ask this because I have a lecturer to whom I'm very close. She obtained her BCL from Oxford with a distinction and over the past two years we have enjoyed a robust relationship academically and personally. I was wondering if the fact that she doesn't have a PhD would be detrimental to my prospects.

Thanks.

Your transcript is what is required and not your certificate. Your transcript will surely show that you studied in Ghana. If anything, because of the extremely small intake of Africans in the class, being from Africa will actually work in your favor. LOL. The LLM intake usually has between 1 to 4 Africans every year. .

It does not matter what your referee has or does not have. The only consideration is that they should know you well enough to actually attest to your academic potential. Actually when I applied, the most impressive reference (because I read all my references before hand) was from a gentleman that does not have a PHD and did not even study in the UK but we had formed a good relationship all through my undergrad and he was able to write one of the best references I have seen. The reference is only bothered with how well they know you and not the prefix before their surname. Moreover she went to "the other side" (PS: It is illegal to say the word Oxford when in Cambridge because of the rivalry. Each of us refers to the other school as "the other side". Quite hilarious) Because of having studied from the other side, that is a very important credential.

Hi to everyone
I have a more general question about the Cambridge LLM. Maybe someone who did the course or the quite similar MJUR Course at Oxford can answer it.
How difficult is the Cambridge LLM? I mean how much do you have to study? How many students fail their exams? I am aware of the fact that it will not be easy, but is it really about studying day and night? Or do you have enough time for college activites or some type of sport?


1. Every Cambridge course is difficult because well, this is Cambridge. It was not built to be a place where people get things easily.

2. You have to study as that is why you are there in the first place. You must attend your lectures although no one will follow up to ensure that you do because you are deemed to be an adult. But rest assured, should you not attend, you will regret it in May during exam period.

3. Cambridge LLMs dont usually fail their exams. Actually the nearest to failure is getting a 2.2. as everyone gets a 1st and a 2.1. However be under no illusion that Cambridge will feel any remorse in giving you a fail if you write crap for them. The Cambridge LLM is earned and not given out of pity.

4. About the studying, it depends on each individual and their workload. The workload in subjects differs. Some subjects have a very heavy workload while others have a lighter load. So those who take the former will obviously study more. I had quite a heavy workload but I NEVER EVER had to read day and night. It all depends on how you manage your workload all year round. There is definitely time for your life such as sports and college activities and the LLM bar hopping events. The LLM will not occupy all your life although it will definately take some of it.


Thank you for your very helpful answer. To summarize, of course you have to work hard and attend classes, but you also have time for sport activities and don´t have to spend whole nights or evenings at the library.
You say that there are courses with a heavier workload than others. Could you give me any specific example?
Thanks again!

Heavy workload is relative and depends on the person in question. That will be my answer.

There is no harm in applying and trying your luck. You need to supplement your application with very strong references and a very strong personal statement and refine your resume.

The best way to write a personal statement is to write it from your heart. What motivates you? What are your career plans? What makes Cambridge ideal? How does Cambridge fit into your overall career goals? What is it about the LLM that makes you want to do it?

During my time, I had no struggle with the word limit. Summarize everything you want to say into who you are (drop your academic achievements and co-curricular as well), why you want to do an LLM and why the LLM at Cambridge. 300 words are enough for that.

Hi everyone,

I just have a question in regards to the application deadline, regarding the submission of my academic transcript and referees.

The application deadline for the LLM is stated 15 November.

I will receive exam marks for a recent subject on 11 November, and will also want that lecturer to provide my second reference.

Therefore:
1. Do I have only four days to submit my updated academic transcript, and referees? Or can these be updated later
2. Must the transcript be mailed? or can it be electronically scanned?

Thank you

Hi all,

I am planning to apply for 2017-2018 entry for the Cambridge LLM.

Based on the information on the Cambridge LLM application/ admissions website, it seems that no written work or personal statement is required. May I know if this is correct? If so, I was wondering what sections/ questions need to be answered in the application form?

Any answers would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Take a look at the Applicant Portal (once you have registered) > Course Application > Other Information. There is space for you to write a couple of hundred words and explain why you're applying, what your career goals are, and other information you may deem relevant.

Good luck :-)

A CV is uploaded to the self service account after submission.

You are supposed to write any additional information under "any additional information" which means things like any written work, mooting experience, anything that you want them to know.

1. Do I have only four days to submit my updated academic transcript, and referees? Or can these be updated later
2. Must the transcript be mailed? or can it be electronically scanned?

Thank you


a. All your information must be in by the deadline.
b. Your lecturer doesnt need to first give you your results in order to provide his reference. His reference can be provided in the meantime.
3. A certified copy of the transcript must be mailed not scanned. For now, for purposes of submission, you can scan one and upload it to the self service page. But if you are offered an admission, you will have to send them a certified copy of your transcript.

I just have a question in regards to the application deadline, regarding the submission of my academic transcript and referees.

The application deadline for the LLM is stated 15 November.

Hi guys,
I couldn't find the CV column in Cambridge app form. Can anyone tell me where is one supposed to upload the CV?

Also, what is one supposed to write in the third essay question -"any additional information"?


A CV is uploaded to the self-service account after submission.

You are supposed to write any additional information under "any additional information" which means things like any written work, mooting experience, anything that you want them to know.



@Legal life, thank you! So, I can submit the CV till a week after I submit the main application, right?
Also, how do I differentiate "additional information" column from what I write in my CV, any idea?

Remember that applications close on 15th November regardless so it is in your best interest to stick to the deadline.

There is no requirement for you to have to write anything in that column. If you think you have already covered everything, feel free to leave it blank.

Hello everyone! I would like to understand my chances of getting into Cambridge.
- I have a TOEFL score of 109. (with at least 25 in each section)
- Rank as the 4th out of 139.
- 1 year of professional experience.
Would my TOEFL score hinder my chances? since they need a 110?
Thank you!
