Swansea in my view (and for many in the sector) is the most exciting and contemporary provider at the moment. Just have a look:

I have also been admitted to Swansea, and got offers from Southampton and QMUL as well. I applied UCL's maritime law llm program and waiting their decision. I know that Swansea's maritime law llm program is ranked as the best. However, the overall ranking of the university is highly low (somewhere at 400s) As for Southampton, most of its maritime law professors are said to be retired or passed to other universities. On the other hand, QMUL seems both prestigious and has a maritime law specialism. Professors Yvonne Baatz and Miriam Goldby are teaching there. UCL has a maritime law specialism as well and is ranked among the top 10 universities worldwide. Professor Melis Ozdel is there. So, I am very confused about my decision. Could you help me?

Hi ! I am almost in your situation as well and having a lot of thoughts recently. I got offer from Swansea and considering to go there because of their reputation in Maritime Law. However, latest QS 2020 rankings as 462th for Swansea University and 8th for the UCL really troubles my decision. I am also waiting a decision from UCL which applied recently. Southampton and QMUL is not my preferences but UCL really confuses me as well. 
On the other hand Swansea maybe rank 462 in general yet they have really well known professors who write many books and have a lot of well respected publications in the field like Proffessor Baris Soyer, Proffessor Richard Williams and many others. Besides, although UCL has advantage due to a hub location in Marine Industry Swansea also well connected within and has many well positioned graduates. 
I do not know really at this stage even we will be able to go to school at this Fall or had to delay but I think it is best that we talk with schools and lecturers and make our decisions accordingly. 
Best luck for UCL !

No, not yet but Swansea just declared that they will have January Intake for the same program and most probably I will go with that considering even Visa centers are still closed there will be no time to start in September even though UCL gave me an offer with scholorship.. 

Any news or decision taken by your side ?

Not yet either. I haven't decide, still waiting for hearing from UCL. I will probably take the online course in September if I cannot take a visa and start face to face education in January. I was awarded a scholarship for my PhD and am required to start it in September 2021 at the latest. So, I cannot delay my LLM. However, I heard that some schools offer accelerated LLM options for January intakes which will end in September too. So, if Swansea or UCL offers such a thing, I can consider it either.
