entry requirements top 10 colleges/multiple degrees


Hello!

I am a student from Austria and I am currently looking for a LLM program in London/UK. Therefore I have some questions about the entry requirements. I hold a bachelor degree in management and economics (specialisation: banking and finance), a Magister degree (comparable to a master-degree) in law and in the foreseeable future I will obtain my Magister degree (same here) in business-law. My overall grades are between 2,3 and 2,5 and I also gained work experience (internships) in national and international law firms (e.g. Freshfields).

With that said, I wonder whether I would stand a chance to be accepted by the top 10 colleges like UCL, KCL, QMUL, LSE etc.

I already checked some of the international students information websites, but they dont mention how they evaluate multiple degrees.
I would really appreciate any help or information!

But I estimate still in the top 20%. The thing is that the universities have different conversions for the required upper second class, the required Austrian equivalent fluctuates between 2.0 and 2.8.
Therefore it would be interesting, whether my additional degrees would help me to get accepted anyway.

Being in the top 20 % of your classes you'll definitely have to cross Oxford and Cambridge off your list.

Oxford and Cambridge are for excellent students only (top 10 % at least). You are good, but not excellent.

LSE will be a close call, but with a bit of luck it might work.

UCL and the rest of the bunch shouldn't be a problem.

Keep pushing.

Oxford and Cambridge weren't on my list ;) I would definitely be happy with LSE, UCL or KCL.

As we can see, you contradict yourself. If Cambridge accepted such an idiot like you, then we, mediocre students, definitely stand a chance. This is all a joke for you, but you mislead people. This minor nuisance can affect their lives substantially.

to llm_austria
You should apply to both Oxford and Cambridge and let the faculty members decide whether you are good enough or not. The only thing you will loose is the application fee. And the only certain way to not get in is not applying. A high 2.1 deserves a shot. Good luck with your applications.

Thx for your encouragement :)! But LSE, KCL or UCL would be absolutely fine.

Does it frustrate you not to have made it into the likes of Cambridge?

my dear friend, do you think it is that simple? that what I wrote above is just out of hatred? wrong again, I declined my offer for the LLM programme a few months ago for a number of reasons.

I'm sorry that I called you an idiot, I overreacted, but I just hate when people cut others' wings, I experienced it too much in my life

Hello llm_austria!

I am also an Austrian and currently considering to apply for some LLM programmes in the UK. As far as I know or as I was able to find some information about, only QMUL and LSE state their minimum average grade requirement for your first law degree on their websites.

QMUL requires for postgraduate law programmes an average grad of 2.8. http://www.qmul.ac.uk/international/international-students/countries/austria/index.html

LSE has a higher requirement, your minimum average grade has to be 2.2. http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/informationForInternationalStudents/countryRegion/europeEU/Austria/entryRequirements.aspx

I am hoping this informations are useful for you!

Oh "good" to know, I also had King's College on my list. But as my average grade is 2.4 i will have to reconsider that and hope that i get into QMUL. Thanks for the information ;-)

jep, I dont think that they know the austrian system very well, because with an overall grade of 2.0 or below you are at least in the best 10%. QM is also on my list and I asked them about their entry requirements for austrian students too.

Yes you are absolutely right. I just have to remember the majority of the results for the Fachprüfungen, where sometimes up to 60% failed to pass the examination and there were approximately between 2 to maximum 10 people who passed with a Sehr Gut.

I just hope that the information at the QMUL website is up to date, that an average grade of 2.8 for law is required so my 2.4 would be sufficient.

Regarding your first post, are you just looking for LLM programmes in London?
