Hi, i received an email yesterday saying that my scholarship application was unsuccessful.


Hey, from whom did this email come from? Was the Graduate School Funding mentioned anywhere or are we talking about the LLM Scholarship?

Thing is, i am pretty sure i read it somewhere, that unsuccessful applicants would not be informed, due to the high volume of applications (which are automatic, as everyone who submitted an application for the LLM programme would have been considered for the said financial support).

In fact the above is mentioned in the Funding Database (just found it) regarding the School of Law LLM Scholarships.

Despite, i have not received any email of the kind. Maybe i should get in touch with them..

Hi guys.
I've just read on the scholarship guidelines the following:
"ANNOUNCEMENT OF RESULTS: As explained in the selection procedures above, candidates who are deemed ineligible for Graduate School Funding or who are not supported for final consideration by their School/Department will be informed of the outcome at those stages, as soon as the information is available to the Research & Graduate School Support office. Candidates will be informed via email of the result."

I will e-mail them next Monday and ask about the scholarships. Anyone else heard anything about that? Bad or good news. Tks!

An answer i just received from an administrative officer of the School of Law notes that the School has yet to decide for successful applicants for the LLM Scholarships and the latter will be informed by the end of the month.

The aforementioned implies in a way, or at least this is what i understand, that unsuccessful applicants are not to be notified somehow.

Hi everyone,

I am French and I will be taking either Competition Law or International Financial Law.

Don't you think we should create a Facebook group for offer holders ?

Hello all!

Another Brazilian. :)

I do think we should create a facebook group, it'd make things easier!

Has anyone decided anything on accomodation issues?

I think I 'll share a flat... I've applied for an accomodation on the campus but I don't think I'll get one.

I've created a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/LlmAtKingsCollegeLondonOfferHolders20122013?skip_nax_wizard=true

Hey guys, I have a serious doubt that needs clarifying.

KCL Law, as you know, demands a total minimum score of 100 in the TOEFL IBT, with a minimum of 24 in each skill. However, I got 30 on reading and listening, 28 on writing and a 23 on speaking.

When I first sent my scores (not the official certificate), one of the admission officers said these exact words: "Thank you for your message and attachment. Please submit a scanned copy of your original TOEFL certificate. We will be able to accept these scores."

One month later, I got nervous about that and asked again if those scores would be acceptable. To my utter surprise, another admissions officer said simply: "Our minimum entry requirement for the TOEFL is 24 in each skill."

When I pointed out the contradiction, the admissions officer who had answered me previously said they are unable to confirm if they can accept my scores until they see the official certificate!

So I ask of you: do you think these scores will be accepted? Should I be worried? Is KCL Law usually flexible when it comes to minimum scores?

Thank you for your time!

Hi everyone,

thanks for creating a facebook page for KCL offer holders. Having looked at it, I thought it may be even better to create an actual "group" on facebook which you can easily enter and exchange questions, post relevant information and links etc.

As I have done so, please take a look at it and feel more than welcome to join:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/175976345865720/?ref=nf

Looking forward to meeting you all in London, at the latest!

Stefan

Hi, I hope that someone here can help me as I cannot find any usefull information on my scenario. Maybe someone has been in a similar situation? I am a South African studying LLB through the University of South Africa aka UNISA (correspondence). I am in my 3rd year but would like to continue my studies in the UK and ultimately practice there. Can I transfer to another University in the UK and just carry on with my degree without losing any credits already obtained? Or even carry on through Unisa as they do have an examination centre in the UK? What is the whole procedure for becoming a lawyer/solicitor in the UK ? Or would it be better to complete my degree in South Africa and then just do the training programme in the UK? Is there any additional programmes/tests, etc that a person from another country has to sit to qualify to practice/study in the UK? Hope someone can give me some sound advice as I have tried all other options - Universities in the UK, SA, institutions, etc but nobody seems to be able to give proper advice.



Thanks in advance
