KCL Applicants 2014/2015

Hey guys,
I was just wondering about accommodation.. Is anyone considering private student halls? As I've never lived in a big city before they seem a "safer" option than private sector accommodation..
Any thoughts on that?


Hey
I'm currently studying in London and would definitely recommend living in private student halls if it's your first time in such a big city. You don't have to worry about your bills, hiring someone if sth breaks down in your flat, etc. Moreover, the private halls at KCL are quite close to the uni so it saves your time a lot. And they look very decent and clean as well.

Hey you all!

I've got a conditional offer from King's, but what I really want is to me accepted in UCL (which I don't know if will happen since I submitted my application mid-march).

KCL has that "little" detail of a 2000 pounds deposit for overseas students for accepting the offer and I wonder what happens if with that amount if I decline my offer after accepting it?

I'm really anxious since UCL asks for 6 weeks to give a response and by my KCL's deadline it will be 5 weeks I submitted the app to UCL.

I'm kind of in the same position.. From what I've read on
the website you have to pay the deposit when accepting the offer but you have 14 days after that to get the refund if you decide not to accept it.. After 14 days the deposit is non refundable!
Maybe email UCL asking about your application? There's no harm in that I guess.. I might do it next week and tell you the reply..
Hope this helps!

That would be just perfect, because it would give me exactly the time I need. I've read some cases in which people sent emails to the UCL admissions department, but I kinda don't wanna do that yet since it's been only 2 weeks of the submission. Besides, I've already sent 3 emails (im that desperate!) with a new copy of my personal statement and still haven't got an answer about it. The only answer i got was when i asked if i could amend the personal statement and they said I should email the new copy.

I wonder if that's gonna be a problem...

Im actually freaking out a little bit. A lot.

I'm sure its ok since they told you to email the new copy, probably they haven't read the old personal statement so they allowed you to email a new one for their consideration.

Don't freak out! Wherever you end up it will be amazing since both universities are renowned for their good programs.
Good Luck !

Don't freak, everything will be fine!

I've been accepted to UCL and King's but I'm going to King's, accepted my offer yesterday.

UCL is amazing but they don't have a specific tax program, which is my law field.

So I declined UCL to open "space" for those who are waiting for decision.

Good luck you all and see you in London!!

Thank you all for your kind responses!

That calmed me down a little, it's always good to to hear from people that went through the same as you.

If UCL doesn't happen, I'm happy with KCL. I'd just like to be able to choose. lol

Hello everyone,

I just got a conditional offer for a LLM at Kings ! But I wonder if I should get my transcripts of diplomas translated ? I applied without sending King's translated documents.

I don't really want to pay for a certified translator :)

Having to translate the diplomas is not a condition for final acceptance.

Thanks

Hey, just wait and see whether they will request a translation, if they do then you should translate the transcripts and won't feel like you've spent the money on the translator without needing too!x

Hey guys. I 've also got an offer from KCL, however i am wondering whether Queen Mary University has a higher reputation in Tax Law than King's College has. I 've got from both unis an unconditional offer, and in 3 weeks i have to make my final decision! :/

Someone I know wants to apply to KCL.
Is it possible that they would still have places for them?

Their website states:

Closing date
We strongly advise application before 1 July for 2014 entry. Applications received after this date may be considered, subject to availability of places. Funding deadlines may be earlier.

I think it quite likely they would have changed this if the programme was full.

Yes - that exact same thing happened to me tonight. Did you find out what it was in your case ? I'm planning to write them an email to find out what's going on !


Yes I found out. For some reason an automated email is sent when supporting documents such as transcripts are approved. If you click the 'references and documents' tab you will probably see some new comment next to a transcript that you uploaded, or something.

So there is nothing for us to do and the email is rather pointless and confusing but that is the reason.

Hi,

I hold an unconditional offer from King's but I saw online that you cannot be registered at the same time in another higher education programm. This includes interruption.

For french Students: when you are in the Bar school does this count? I know that Queen Mary accept you anyway, even though they have the same regulation than King's. But What about King's? I sent an e-mail, (anonymously) and someone from the law postgraduate office told me that I should withdraw my application from l'EFB. But this does not make any sense.

Plus, Does anyone know if on the campus registration they check again your file? Because when I submit my application, no one told me anything, I have been accepted (even though I will be at the EFB at the same time, only administatively speaking, because I have no courses in Paris) but maybe there is a misunderstanding on their side.

Maybe if no one looks again at my file in September this can be good for me anyway (even if I am still at the french EFB)

Does anyone else have the same issue?
