KCL UCL or Edinburgh?


shambini09

Hi guys,

I got accepted to KCL. I am waiting to hear from UCL and Edinburgh. I applied for a general LLM in all 3 institutions and hope to focus my LLM toward EU and Constitutional areas.

The problem is I dont really know which to pick if i get offered all three. Which is best in the above areas? And which has the best prestiege in the areas I want to study.

I have read some threads but I cant figure out where to go.

Any help would be great, thanks.

Congrats on your acceptance to KCL.
All of your choices are strong options. I will comment only on Edinburgh as that is where I did my LLM and my PhD thus the place with which I am most familiar. Edi has a very strong background in EU law as home to the oldest European law research centre - The Europa Institute. The courses on the European LLM reflect a wide range of private/public options, including a course on Constitutional Law. There are also strong student-led efforts in both research areas which contribute to the rich research and practical aspects of European law. The Europa Reading Group and the Constitutional law reading group which both facilitate seminars and discussions independently and in conjunction with their respective research centres.
Also, Edinburgh is less expensive to live in than London.
I hope this helps a bit.
Best of luck.

My area of interest is Intellectual Property(IP) and I am particularly interested in QMUl,KCL,UCL,Manchester or Edinburgh.

Congratulations Nomad86! I am not familiar with ICT law but I can help as much as possible with the other questions. Well, number one, Edinburgh is far less expensive than London! Plus, you needn't take mass transit, though it is readily available--a great bus system. Most students live near the university which is bang in the centre of town.
As with all uni town in the UK, Edinburgh restaurants/theatres/filmhouses all run student deals and give discounts to students so that is a great help, believe me. You can find a decent meal and a beer for a fiver or just over though more expensive, too, if that is your thing.
As per studying law at Edinburgh, it has an extremely vibrant research culture and the faculty promotes many extra-curricular activities for the students. As an LLM student you will take only 3 classes per week but there are always lectures across broad subjects as well as in specific fields that make it easy to learn about interesting topics and other fields of law which encourages cross-fertilisation of ideas. Always a good thing! Plus there are increasing multi-disciplinary projects/interest groups springing up which makes for lots of exciting opportunities to network outwith the legal field.
For questions specific on the courses you should contact Smita.Kheria@ed.ac.uk as she organises the programme and teaches a large number of the courses. She is very approachable and should be most helpful.
Good luck!
