KCL or UCL

hey guys!

you are off the topic and nobody could benefit to your long-lasting disputes as to LSE, which is irrelevant. I have a friend, who was rejected by LSE and accepted by cambridge after 2 weeks. There must be something we dont know about their admission criteria. In this regard, general rankings must be the last indicate to be taken into account.

good luck to cann and lisbon fot their debate:D

Llisbon, I will do competition law, however I might take Richard Hooley's module as well, still undecided on that point.

Tinkerbell, please was all mine :) Many thanks for your kind offer of help. I live on London so univerisity accomodation will not be necessary, I would however greatly appreciate some general feedback on how you enjoyed your time at King's. Did you have prof Whish?

Olgun, thanks for your insight. Some advice though, ECHR - freedom of speech, might want to look it up.

My experience at Kings (many years ago) was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, I did not have Prof. Whish hence I can't comment on him personally though I can say he comes accross as a very approachable individual. Overall, I am sure you will enjoy your time there and I wish you all the best of luck!

I am happy to hear you live in London, for the most tense part of my experience was accomodation...

Hi,

for a finance focused LLM , I did not notice too many interesting courses at UCL but only: Legal aspect of int finance (Pr. Rawling) and Corporate finance (Dr. Reisberg+ Dan Prentice visiting).
Did I miss any relevant courses?

thanks

Legal aspect of Int.Fin is tought also by Prof. Graham Penn - partner Sidley&Austin and leading authority in banking - he is giving 8 lectures and he is really outsatnding. Prof. Prentice teaching in Oxford and leading authority in Corporate Finance is also excelent - he was present during the whole course. Also Prof. Ferran from Cambridge and Prof. Armour from Oxford were giving - each one - lecture. These three people are in my opinion the three top of coprorate finance in UK. I strongly recommend - secured transaction given by Prof. stevens (formarly oxford) - even though I had not intend to take up this subject after one class I took it - its the best teacher I ever had - the others say the same. Finally, I took regulation of financial markets - it was shit - but I am interested in the subject. But next year there should be a different teacher.... thats as much as regards finance & banking

Koala: UCL
Banker: I think KCL have a slight edge when it comes to the finance LLM (selection of courses and profs) but anyway that's my opinion

Agree. I've always thought that KCL was one of the top UK LLMs for finance because of their faculty and location in the heart of the City...

KCL has wider selection of courses within the specialization - I agree. I dont think there are better profs at Kings - I have been tough by really top top guys (I have been practising for 7 years now so I can recognize the quality). 2 of my courses were given by two profs. simultaneously. I really cant complain except for one case as mentioned in my previous comment. But, of course, there are great teachers at Kings too. I know Tanekoon and Lomnicka. Finally, there are some courses run by both uni together... Anyway, both schools are ok - preference is very personal matter.....

At the time I did my LLM at KCL, they were both part of the UOL Program and one could choose the subjects from the otehr school's curricular...good old times...

LLisbon, I chose legal aspects of international finance and regulation of financial markets (the other courses are irrelevant for the subject) so, as you see, I chose finance modules over conventional banking law (I could have sat an exam in banking law but I did not like the syllabus - too UK based). My llm was all "debt finance" based (not so much equity) - syndicate lending, securitisations, bonds, derivatives, private equity, etc.

In international finance, at UCL, I had what is deemed to be one of the best practicioners in the City: Graham Penn. Google him or look it up on chambers and partners - you will be impressed. Tennekoon is really good and a great teacher, however, Penn is undoubtedly ahead... (I attended classes from both as my flatmate was doing an LLM at KCL in international finance). Plus, Penn has the academic edge, for he did a PhD in the field as well. Furthermore, he is backed-up by Rawlings and Roberts (QMUL's international finance teacher) who prepare the classes thouroughly.

Dalhuisen is definitely a very big name, however, I wouldn't trade my "Legal Aspects of International Finance" at UCL for the 3 half courses at KCL with Tennekoon. However, I would like to have had Eva Lominscka in Regulation...

They are both great places to do an llm in international finance... And probably better than LSE, from what I grasped. Too bad there is no UoL LLM anymore... I would have been more than happy to take course at both institutions.

Should you want to discuss in Portuguese, I will be more than happy.

Take care

UCL is much more Universally recognized and has much better Faculties and other facilities.

I am from India, have LLM conditional offers from both KCl and UCL...In KCL, since i havent really mentioned any specific subjects ..I have the leisure of choosing them now. But in UCL i was asked to give specific subjects which i intended to study in my SOP...and i chose technology and regulation and subjects mostly dealing with IP.. Now I have the following queries:
1. whether UCL is going to hold me by the subjects I chose or will I be allowed to change my subjects since my inclinations have shifted towards international finance lately??
2. if IP is concerned which of the UCL /KCL will be a better choice??
3. I really need big time help on the accomodation, especially with regards to UCL...help me tinkerbell :)??

You can normally switch your subjects when you start your LLM (within six weeks). When it comes to IP, it's QMUL that is recognised as the best place to go, not KCL or UCL (between KCL and UCL I'm not sure who is better for IP).
