Edinburgh LLM Applications | 2020-21




Hi bethebest2020,

While it is possible that an applicant may receive a response before the published date of places awarded (in this case, 6 February 2020), this should not be taken as a guarantee. Entry to this programme is competitive, and the majority of decisions are sent out on the published date.

Please feel free to get in touch with us at pg.law.enquiries@ed.ac.uk if you have any further questions.

Thank you, Bethan

Has anyone heard back from Edinburgh for the LLM programme in International Economic Law? According to their website, the decisions for this programme were supposed to be released by today.


Did you get an answer from admissions team?I’ve got the mail saying they carry my application forward to the next selection deadline for further consideration. I think this is kinda rejection or candidate:/


Hi Minett,

If your application has been carried forward to the next selection deadline, this means that your application is still very much active and being considered by the admissions team. This should not be taken as an automatic rejection, but rather a means to consider all applicants given the competitive nature of the LLM programmes.

As your application has been carried forward, you will receive a final decision on your application at the next published places award date.

I hope this is helpful, but if you have any further queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at pg.law.enquiries@ed.ac.uk

By way of update, I just got an email last night notified that I got the offer for LLM in Law (general track).

I submitted my application in early November. (actually, the offer should come on 6 February 2020)

As far as I know, at least 3 of my classmates have got an offer here. All of them were rejected by King's, Durham, and UCL, but got an offer from Edinburgh. One of them has GPA only 2.9 (fresh graduate), the other two are not much different. It is quite strange that all 3 students who are rejected by Durham all got accepted by Edinburgh. I don't think this place is as "prestigious" as they claim. Way too easy to get in. Did you know that students with IELTS score below the requirement can pay for English course and get in too? They say the University considers LLM their money maker programmes. Also, Bristol or even Leeds are more of a law educational institute than Edinburgh.

Anyone else with an admission offer to the LLM Criminal Law and Criminal Justice? I got my offer in December and would like to connect with other offer holders to discuss what to expect and also to decide between Edinburgh and other US/UK colleges.

I got an offer here last year and I am so glad I didn't go there. According to my friend, the place is "as terrible as hell", and greedy like xxx. Low-quality students from Europe chose to be here because it costs them half the tuition fee of international students. Good teachers sit back and focus on research, and letting low-grade teachers to teach (teaching is considered second-grade job here). I heard they even let research students mark your assignment paper coz it's cheap.

Moreover, the University thinks examinations and marking papers cost them too much so they decide that there is no examination here, coz the University has to pay them extra to mark the exam papers, not to mention the use of facilities (it costs them at least few thousand pounds for a few hour exam). Speaking of facilities, students go to classroom only twice a week, so that the University can use the building space to do something else like opening more courses to get more money. So, basically studying here is not much different from doing an online LLM at home (in fact, I think the online LLM's tuition fee here is not much different from the on campus LLM's fee. You should check).

PS: I heard that they also send their staff to spy in here to ensure they get customers.

I tend to agree with you, guys. I have already gotten offers from, I'd dare say, more prestigious universities, and yet they keep pushing mine here to the next round -it has already happened twice-. I find it kind of weird, maybe because they think that I wouldn't have the necessary funds to pay for it?

Has anyone received an offer yesterday? I think yesterday was one of the dates for responses.

Did you get a response from University of Edinburgh? I am concerned that my offer might be delayed for the next round or rejected this month.

I got an offer from UoE yesterday for their LLM IP programme but after looking at some of the student reviews about the University, I'm unsure if I should opt for UoE over QMUL.

Me either. I got an offer from UoE. But I have no idea to choose between Durham/Bristol and Edinburgh. I am not sure It would be worth it.

Durham is a much nicer & better place. The entry standard is much higher. Edinburgh City is dirty and worth visiting only during August. Edinburgh people are nice during August because they know tourists bring in money. But for the rest of the year, foreign students are attacked all the time, especially if you have chinese look. My gf got punched in her eye by an Edinburgh teenager, twice, crying "Ni Hao" despite she can't speak Chinese (her grand parents are Chinese though).

Durham is a much friendlier city. But QMUL is the best for Law, I think. Edinburgh is good at Scots Law. But between Durham and QMUL, you have to admit QMUL have an edge.

I would opt for Edinburgh over Durham as it is more prestigious and placed higher in international rankings. Do not expect too much from the LLM programme they will all be fairly similar, most of the teaching is done via seminars and most of your time will be spent trying to complete the reading lists. In regards to choosing between QMUL and Edinburgh it depends on your preferences between London and Edinburgh. I completed my LLM degree in London and it can be very expensive at times.

Thank you IPlawman and EB94, that was quite helpful. At this point, I am more inclined to opt for QMUL due to its reputation, quality of teaching (specifically for its LLM programme in IPR) and because practicing in London would be easier (thanks to QLTS/SQE) as against Scotland. I believe that since the QLT scheme is not applicable in Scotland, practicing as a Solicitor there would involve going through the accelerated LLB route, which is time consuming and expensive.

Hello. I have a query regarding the application status at Edinburgh Law School.
Till last night, my status showed all details received, with documents verified and stated that my application was being reviewed.
Today, it says that my application is being processed by the staff.
Is this normally how it works?
I would assume review of application would come after the basic processing of the application by the staff.
Thank you!

Edinburgh degree is useless unless you want to be a solicitor in Scotland
