Deadline for Oxford


brainiac

Dear all

I'm a little bit confused as everybody is talking about the deadline fo 20 November 2009 for the MJur-course taking place 2010/11.

If you have a look at Appendix 2 (http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate_courses/apply/key_by_course.html) it says that deadline is 22 January 2009 and that you need to support materials B (i.e. including one piece of written work).

So whats right now? Can anyone tell me when the deadline is and if one has to send in a piece of written work in too or not?

Thank you very much in advance

Becoz they're talking about Cambridge LLM. Not Oxford BCL. The later doesn't seem to have LLM program.

Well, Oxford does have an LL.M. programme, it's just called MJur / BCL.

Hy,

Is there anyone applying to MSc in Law and Finance in Oxford? Do you have any tips for the piece of written work?
By the way, I'm from Brazil.

Kind regards,

I reckon the deadline for Oxfords programmes ended on the 22nd January, 2010. Im not sure whether Cambridge is still accepting applications. You ought to try UCL, KCL, QM and LSE... Im pretty sure they're still open for new applicants. In England you might also have a shot at Nottingham, Manchester, Bristol or Birmingham. In Scotland, you should try Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow. I think all these universities are accepting applications for September 2010. Sorry but I know nothing about universities in Singapore.

UCL, KCL and LSE for sure. The others in my opinion would be second tier...

Oxford and Cambridge are the most traditional universities in the UK and in the world for that matter (along with Harvard and Yale). But UCL, KCL and LSE are the best colleges inside the University of London which is just as good as Oxford and Cambridge, but not as traditional as the other two for one simple reason: age. Oxford and Cambridge are more than 800 years old whilst University of London was founded in the early 1800s. But you can apply to UCL, KCL and LSE without any resentment towards reputation. In the last Times Higher Education ranking UCL placed 4th in the world and KCL 25th. LSE was a little far behind but only because its specialised in economy and other social sciences and in such field its definitely one of the best in the world (maybe even better than UCL and KCL). Cardiff is a good university but its law school doesnt enjoy a great reputation in the UK its good, but definitely not first tier more like a lower second tier (unless youd like to specialise in Canon Law I think theyre the only ones to offer such specialisation). Long story short, Id apply to UCL, KCL and LSE if I too was seeking only first tier universities. If youd like to broaden your choices just a little, try also Nottingham Manchester and Edinburgh which are definitely among the best law school on the second tier. If you still think these arent enough, apply to Aberdeen, Bristol, Birmingham and Glasgow then Id apply to Queens Belfast and Cardiff as a last resort.

Hi. LSE applies the first-come first-served policy and therefore early applicants have a better shot. I think the same applies to KCL and UCL (though Im not sure about UCL). Command of the English language is mandatory, of course, and the universities ask for proof of such command through minimum grades on the IELTS or TOEFL. I dont know the TOEFL equivalents, but I know LSE asks for a 7.5 IELTS (with no less than 7.0 in any section), UCL requires a 7.5 (with no less than 6.5 in any section) and KCL requires a 7.0 (with no less than 7.0 in any section). They do say though that they might waive the IELTS or TOEFL where the applicants had education in English. If thats your case then youll need to provide them with evidence of such fact. And they dont keep unsuccessful applications for the next year. If you dont make it in this year then youll need to apply again for 2011/2012. Youd better run to get everything ready in time for this year cause even though they might be accepting applications I reckon it wont be for long

Can i take IELTS after applying to these colleges. Do the uni's accept appli's without IETLS score and then later on send you an offer letter on the condition that you get a minimum IELTS score. Does taking IELTS give you an edge over an application without an IELTS score as far as selection is concerned?

Hi ab123. If you've got an excellent academic record I think I stand a chance, even though you're applying late. As regards IELTS, you can apply first and send the IELTS score later. As far as selection goes, I don't see presenting the IELTS score later as a setback, especially the universities already state that they're able to make conditional offers and if you just can't meet the conditions they'll end up calling someone. Anyway, considering you say you've got a great academic record, the lack of IELTS results at application should not impair your application and the chances of getting in.
