Cambridge PhD Programme


LegalLife

Looking at the statistics from previous years;

In 2015/2016, 147 students applied for the PHD. 54 offers were made. 24 students ultimately confirmed attendance.

So I guess there is still hope for all waiting.

Hi,

I've an incidental question for the lucky applicants that have been moved to BOGS.

I'm wondering whether the faculty are prioritising gates Scholarship applicants perhaps? I didn't apply for gates and just curious as to whether the offer holders did?

Thanks!

For the offer holders I am aware of, the difference is that they were interviewed.

Not necessarily.

Bgg never mentioned one way or the other and Joeyman said that he was interviewed. They are the two offer holder on this thread. So it is a stretch to make that conclusion.

Hello guys!

I was interviewed but I am still under consideration by the degree committee. I just called them and they said that the fact that we are still under consideration does not mean anything and that we should check our accounts often these days.

I was wondering whether the offer holders have received a conditional offer or not and whether they already hold a first class LLM.

Good luck to everyone!

I know 5 other offer holders (2 from student room, 2 who were classmates at Cambridge and 1 from here and all were interviewed.

So seeing as the known offer holders were all interviewed and I am not aware of any current offer holder who was not interviewed (I may be wrong and stand duly corrected), that looked like a pattern.

However with about 50 places up for grabs, there are still many places to fill so we will all hear back in due course somehow.

Every offer at Cambridge is conditional; Each and every offer for graduate admission. This is because there is the standard condition of college membership.

The 2 classmates I know that hold an offer both got a first class LLM at Cambridge.

Excuse me for not being clear. What I meant is the following: if you are a current LL.M. student and assuming that you hold a first class LLB, will Cambridge make an offer conditional upon your LL.M. grade being first class?

Conditions are set by the department and they differ from person to person so I am afraid that is not something we can answer with certainty. However for many of my classmates on the LLM that applied for a PHD when we were still doing the LLM had a 1st class as a condition. Others had percentages instead of class. Again, it is really an admission decision that doesnt seem to have a straightforward answer.

I am a current LLM student and the only condition for me is completion of the degree.

I didn't apply to Gates, unfortunately. Though, it could be by subject area!

Thank you joeyman365!

Is this your first LLM? Also, are you a US or UK LLM student? I am trying to figure out their pattern as regards conditions because last year they made 1st class conditional offers to all Cambridge LLM students and apparently this is not true for students from other universities.

I think you're probably right. According to grad cafe a new interview invite went out today.

For my part, I was interviewed and my status was updated to BOGS about a month later. I also applied for the Gates Scholarship.

I completed my LLM in 2014 so I don’t have any academic conditions with my offer. To add to what LegalLife was saying, I can also say that all the people I know who applied while doing their LLM had a 1st class as a condition.
