LLM KCL, QMUL, Edinburgh, Bristol, Durham, Glasgow and Southampton.


Hi everyone,

I have a conditional offer from KCL for a LLM in International Finance Law, and a unconditional offers from QMUL for a LLM in Commercial and Corporate Law, Bristol for a LLM in Commercial Law, Durham for a LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law, Glasgow for a LLM in Corporate & Financial Law and Southampton for a LLM in Commercial and Corporate Law.

In Edinburgh, I sent an application for a LLM in Commercial Law and for a LLM in Corporate Law, but I didn't receive an answer yet.

Could you please give some help and your opinions related to which University or programme do you think that is the best or advisable to take?

Best regards to all of you.

from searching all the way throw this website I might say that KCL is the best option due to its reputation and strong academics. But, to be honest, that's only my opinion.
Btw, congrats on so many offers!!!;)

Thank you Alexkos.

But I have received a conditional offer from KCL for a LLM in International Finance Law and they ask me to approve a pre-sessional course which lasts 5 weeks. So, I would like to know if it is hard to achieve that pre-sessional course, and if many students succeed or not. Indeed, I don't want to be rejected for the LLM in KCL in September, and loose a chance to study at QMUL or other universities for instance, which accepted me.

So please, ¿Does anybody know if this course is hard to pass? and ¿Could anyone give me some advices?

Thank you very much for your help.

As far a I know, those kind of per-sessional courses is aimed solely to increase your level of academic English, and all you need to do there is just attending all the classes and doing you homework stuff. There might be some test, but if you would do your best at that course, you'll be just fine.
Oh, you might write them and ask whether there would be test or not, how hard is to pass it.

BTW, During that classes you'll get around and see things, meet people and get used to uni's atmosphere:) Though it might be a matter of additional cost.. Nevertheless, my point is that if I were you and had some time before the program starts and money, I would definitely chose KCL with that condition.

Good luck, mate

My personal opinion.

If London is absolutely vital for you then Kings! I would not attend QM.

My first choice of all three would be Bristol University. It has a very good law school and their LLM is excellent. Ranks high internationally and has a strong reputation in the UK.

Bristol is also a nice place, very young and trendy!!!

They are both good schools!

Edinburgh has a good LLM programme as so does Durham.

However, I have heard a few people speaking highly of Bristol for the LLM. Edinburgh is always a popular destination for students and the University is very good.

Durham is also a top school but in a very small city. If you are looking for a small city then Durham is good. As for their LLM programme, there are better places to do it but if you graduate with an LLM from Durham it is also very good.

From all three, I would personally pick Bristol but this is just a preference!

I am also debating among these universities. But, I'm looking for a qualifying degree, and the LLMs do not work for that.

Edinburgh LLB Graduate Entry or Bristol MA in Law? Why so?

Thanks in advance!
