Hi, everybody!!!!!!
Thank you, Reinhard.
I don't wait anything from them untill august. I think they (PG office) will not send us anything, maybe the Department will.
Do they usually offer the1-choice accomodation?
Thanks,
Bye-bye

in order to be admited you need to have an average good score (Gayed) over 70%, with a good IELTS score 6.5 or 7.0 . For the working experience, yes I have some but it is not relevant I know an Egyptian who was admited to LSE without any working experience nor high grades, the most two important things are the recommendation letters and the statement of purpose. by the way aren't you from syria?

well zhanna frankly I have no idea whether they offer 1-st choice, I'd say that just depends on how full they are: if they have enough place, why shouldn't they give you your 1st choice??
you're right maybe the department will send us some more information: when to be where and this sort of things...

btw I have to announce: it is not hopeless: just because the guys in the pgadmissions office seem to be on holidays, not everyone is. so if you have urgent questions, just try all the other email adresses :-)

Hello again ! Nice to see so many new people here !

Sorry for the delay. I was away for a few days for a short vacation.

It seems that there was no e-commerce module for this year (2004). I talked to Mrs Roberts who informed me that the professor who taught the module has retired. However in 2005 there might be someone else who will teach the module.
Please contact Mrs. Roberts for details.

As far as the 180 units are concerned, YES the dissertation is included in these units. You might get a longer dissertation and fewer taught modules, or vice-versa.

I am still in the "LLM chase" (although if I don't make up my mind until mid July, I might miss the house at Howlands....), so I might be there in September !

see ya !

Hello to everyone (and piacere ai ragazzi italiani).
Can i join you???
Am plased to find some persons who will go to Durham.

My name is Makiko from Japan.
I will attend the LLM in European Legal Studies in this year.
I am anxious about my English ability (my listening & speaking skill is terrible one), but i won't join the pre-sessional English course due to the financial circumstances.

Two days ago, i accepted the confirmation of the accommodation.
(I sent the application form of accommodation around the beginning of May.)
And i have to return a copy of executed Residence Agreement to the College no later than 15th of this month.
(Two copies of Residence Agreement were enclosed and i understand that only one of them should be returned to them. Am i correct???)
Reading through the Agreement is bothersome, but i must do it....
My residence will be Howlands Farm.
I learnt that the Residence is still under construction and there were some protests by students, but am slightly released to know that noise caused by the construction is not so terrible...(someone wrote so, didn't he/she?)
And i have known that buses for students run in the city at night.

I look forward to studying in Durham, because all persons that know Durham said that it is very good place.
I prefer quiet cities/towns, and it seems to me that Durham is one of ideal cities for study.
And, i also look forward to seeing you all in September!

Cheers,

Welcome Makiko, of course you can join!
As far as I know you're the first to study European Legal Studies, but Durham has an excellent reputation for European law. Good choice I guess...

So when will you arrive? I received just one copy or the residence agreement, but I'm at palatine house, so maybe that's the difference. Actually I know how tiring the reading is, but I think we should know what we sign (even if we are lawyers). And it's always funny to know what we're supposed to do and not to do.
As I understood the construction works will be finished somewhen??
I guess the noice won't be so bad, at least you know you're in a new building...

well if you prefer quiet cities durham is ok...

ciao Makiko, benvenuta tra noi!!

I choose Durham because it's a quite place too, but i don't know anyone who went there and neither anyone who just knows it as a town but still i think i'll like it.

My english is terrible too so i'll be there 1 month before for 1 month pre-sesssional english course.

Ciao

Good evening from Japan.
Thank you all for responding to me.
I was glad to read all.

Upon reading the Agreement, i didn't understand an Article, so i sent an e-mail to College in order to ask about it yesterday.
But i haven't received any response from them!!!
(Japanese is hasty race and lives in the country where trains and buses are expected to run on time, you know...)
I wonder if i must call them....

I will probably arrive in Durham around the 26th of September.
I have a plan to leave my country on the 21st and will travel somewhere (maybe Lake District) before reaching Durham.
While you study hard in the pre-sessional course, i will study hard at home so that i could keep up with you and other students.

Speak to you soon,

P.S. I was shocked by the serial bombings in London....

Hi, everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's so sad that we've got bad news about London. But I hope none of you will change your mind to go Durham. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you in the UK.
Don't worry, Makiko, my English is awful. I don't know how I got 7.0 (IELTS).
I've got my visa today (big step), so I'm waiting only for Accomodation agreement. Unfortunately, sometimes letters don't reach Kazakhstan at all.
Does anybody knows when they are going to send invoices for tuition?

Makiko maybe you shouldn't expect your answer too soon, but eventually they'll answer. I know exactly how nasty it is to wait, but that's life...

About the invoices I have no idea. Hope it won't be later than august.

Terrorism is horrible, but I won't change my mind.

Good morning, everyone.
It is raining in my town, i hate the bloody rainy season...

As i couldn't have responses from the Office, i called them yesterday.
And my question was resolved.
(Soon after my call, the Office responded to my e-mail...)
The person who i talked with seemed to be kind, but, my god, i couldn't understand what she said so much.

to Zhanna,
I won't change my mind, and will go to Durham as planned.

Bye for now,

After a very long time I wonder if Ole arrived in Durham. If yes, tell us about it... Same question to everyone else who should be there :-)
Does any of you know whether we'll receive more information or if we are just supposed to arrive in Durham and struggle our way through the university?

Hi everybody, Ohiyo miko. I 'm really sorry for not contacting you for a long time but I hope that it ll not too late to answer all of your questions. I have stayed at durham for almost 2 months. everything here is quite nice except that it is such little and quiet city that I have nothing to do. In addition, studying pre-sessional here is not easy because I have to do a lot of hw everyday. I am under pressure and little worry about my english because I will be able to study law on the condition that I need to get A in the presessional course. I don't know it is true or not but the director of presessional course declare like this. That 's why I have no time to check this board.

For accommodation, I walk pass Howlands farm many time. I think that the noise there is not the big problem for us. The problem for me is it is quite far away from law department and from the city centre. I have to carry many heavy things, especially foods from the city centre to Howlands by walking up the hill. it 's so terrible and often make me tired, so maybe I will rent a house with my friends. it is much cheaper and more convenient because you can choose the location you prefer.

for the course, I haven't yet check the module but I heard that it have no the international dispute resolution that is my interest and I will not choose the European law because I have never learn this subject before , so it is quite difficult to compete with other europian students.

Anyway, i have many friends that will be our classmate studying the presestional course. I have many japanese freinds as well and all of them is very nice. my close friends here is also japanese, I m really like japanese guys. Miko, I hope you will be one of my best friends soon. Furthermore, I also know Italian guy but now there is only one italian. He is handsome ,colorful and very nice as well. we play soccer and go to the pubs together many times. Many friends here make me relaxed from hard study. I look forward to see you all too.

Ok, I think the information I give will be useful for you all. If you have any question, just ask and leave it in this board. I will try my best to answer your question as fast as possible
