Hi
Planning to do Llm in human rights.
Got offers from Queen Mary and Bristol and waiting for Edinburgh. Now the problem arises in terms of finance.. As Queen Mary is costing more dn previously estimated. There are surely many things going in favour of qmul, specifically its location. Bt I wonder if it's a good investment...also exactly where it stands in comparison to Bristol n Edinburgh is a big concern. Would appreciate any insight into the matter.. As I hv to make a decision within days.

I believe for human rights you can consider Bristol n Edinburgh. Apply in Durham as well. Apply for scholarships. Qmul is great for international arbitration, commercial, corporate laws. Look into KCL as well.

Thank you so much for the reply. KCL doesn't hv llm in human rights. As for scholarship most of unis are way past there due dates for scholarship applications. I had applied to Queen Mary within the date of scholarship consideration, however they took forever in coming up with an offer..so their due date for scholarship is gone.

Hi

For those with experience, could you please give me an indication of my chance of success of getting into the LLM programme at LSE UCL KCL (considering applies later this year for 2017 intake).

I graduated with a conjoint BCom/LLB (Hon) from the University of Auckland. My overall GPA was about 7.48/9 (A- or around a 75-80%). My LLB (Hon) GPA is approximately 6.8/9 (B+ or around 70-75%) and my Honours dissertation was awarded a A (8/9 or 85-90%). I graduated in 2014 and have been working in a top tier law firm since.

I also completed a semester in the UNiversity of Nottingham on exchange, and although these grades don't really count, for comparative purposes, received grades between 65 and 71 (not sure how that compares in UK generally).

I am also considering moving to the UK to practice law (would be looking at Magic Circle/Silver Circle law firms) for 1-2 years and then applying - would that make a difference to my application?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it just my imagination or has UCL recently changed the deadline for LLM applications? I could have sworn it was 1 May but now both the general UCL website and the UCL Laws website state that it's 1 July.

I just checked it myself and I am very sure that it said 1 May a few days ago. What do think that could mean? Not enough applicants maybe?
Have you applied to the LLM and if yes when did you apply?
I applied over a month ago and haven't received a respond yet.

Going through the comments, I noticed that some of you still expect to be notified of the outcome of your application to UCL. In my case it has been 8 weeks now, although I did contact someone from the LLM admissions office last week. Despite being told that a decision would be reached by the end of (last) week, I still have not heard from them.

My status still indicates that the application is under assessment.

You should call them up and tell them that's been 8weeks now since you've applied. They'll inform you about their decision on the phone. Good luck.

The Faculty of Laws has recommended to make an offer to me. Only it goes now to the Admissions Office for final checks. Can it be that they ultimately decide to reject my application, or do they usually abide by the Faculty's recommendations?

Hey all- I just received an unconditional offer from UCL yesterday. I had previously applied on the 8th of March just for you to get an idea.

Hey all- I just received an unconditional offer from UCL yesterday. I had previously applied on the 8th of March just for you to get an idea.


Hello all,

I was wondering if any of you could help with a few questions that I have regarding the UCL LLM now that I have had an offer made.

First of all: is it possible to return home while writing the Dissertation or does one have to stay in London for the entire year?

Secondly, what other expenses should I be considering other than tuition, accommodation and living expenses such as food? Anything else related to the University that I should know about?

Finally, anyone else having an offer has decided on accommodation? I'm curious to see what you guys consider to be the best option...

Thanks for the help guys!

Hi everyone,
I guess this topic would be the best to ask this question.
I am admitted to the QMUL LLM for the Fall 2016. I haven't accepted the offer yet. I would like to know if there is a deadline for offer acceptance. I also cant find any information about the deposit due date on their website, nor in my mysis account.
The school is a backup plan for me and I would like to postpone my decision for as long as possible but without risking my spot.

thanks for your help in advance,

Hi,
Does anybody have an idea that when LSE application for LLM closed? It is one of very few programmes which already close its application.

For the benefit of those still waiting for a reply from either QMUL, KCL or UCL, I applied really late around the first week of April.

I've received a conditional offer from QMUL 2 weeks ago and I have just also received a conditional offer from KCL today. Awaiting a reply from UCL which is taking forever...

KCL requires me to graduate from my LLB with an average of 64% overall. Does anyone know or have any experience as to how lenient KCL is their conditions?

Hey I've just received a conditional offer from KCL.

It states that I need 'a final overall grade average of 64%, calculated across all years of study.'

Does anyone know how strict the "calculated across all years of study" is? My college calculates final grades based on just 3rd and 4th year.

First of all, congratulations!

I also have a conditional offer from both QMUL and KCL. KCL requires me to graduate with an average of 14 out of 20, so I think they are not very lenient.

Just wondering, what university are you from? Maybe it makes a difference on how they see grades.

Hi All,

Is there anyone going to the LSE Law on Chevening Scholarship?

Ps. I'll do LLM in Tax at the LSE. See you all there in September.
