LLM QMUL 2013-2014

Hi adrianne! I think that you can still apply since they said on the facebook page QM School of law that they extended the applications deadline to june 1st.
But I recommend you to apply asap because they seem to be considering applications on a rolling basis.
As for the IELTS just send your results and I guess that when they will make the offer they will tell you if you need to sit the IELTS exam once again or if you'll have to attend pre sessional english courses...but i'm pretty sure that if you had 7,5 they won't say anything if you only got 5,5 in writting.
As for the letters, I think it would be better if you could submit two!

Thanks for the answer LaJusty! I hope so :) I'm a bit worried about my ielts score, but thank you for giving me a hope.
Unfortunately, i only have one reference letter as of now...i live quite far away from my former law school so it's a bit hard for me to contact my professor, other than my thesis mentor...so yeah i hope it will be okay if i only submit one...
One more question, how long will it takes for QMUL to answer your application whether you'll be accepted or not? 4 weeks or more?

As far as i'm concerned I applied on january 13th and got my offer of place on january 31st!
I don't know if it was pretty fast because I applied early or if that's the time they usually take to answer!
Good luck on your application, fingers crossed!

Hey adrianne,

concerning your application: Send it ASAP as they might close soon! One reference is enough, it's all they require!

Concerning your IELTS: Just send it in and see what will happen. They normally require a minimum of 7.5 for the writing part, but if the rest of your application is qualifying your for the LLM, they might either tell you to retake the IELTS OR attend a presessional course, which would in your case be a thirteen week course which is hard to manage.. So just send your results in and prepare to retake the IELTS.

I sent my application in by October last year and got a conditional offer (on finishing my LLB) 3 days later.

Hi IP007! Thank you for answering my question.
oh gosh...there's no way i could manage a thirteen week pre-sessional course :'( I rather retake IELTS then...hopefully i wont screw my chance to be accepted.
I will send the application as soon as possible! hopefully 3 days from now at the latest. I'm still struggling in perfecting my personal statement....although it is not mandatory, it is important for me to send one since i'm obviously lacking in any other departments (like english ability etc...).and just have a pretty mediocre academic qualification (2:1, top 5% in my law school but lacked of working experience)...so finger crossed!

I sincerely hope to meet you guys soon as a future classmates! May I have the best of luck then.... :))

@Adrianne: I don't think that submitting one recommendation letter is a problem, although 2 letters are definitely an advantage. When I applied online I sent just one and by the time I sent them via email the second letter, they had already sent me the offer. Moreover, I received my offer in 7 or 8 days from the moment I applied online...

I received the offer very fast: applied on 9th December, they sent the offer on 12th December.
And Adrianne, my overall IELTS score is 7(writing 6, speaking 6.5; listening&reading 8), now I'm going to resit IELTS exam, but there is an option to attend pre-sessional course for 5 weeks.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if your offer indicated your specialism or if it was a general offer for the FT LLM?

Also, does anyone know if I'm offered a general LLM, is it difficult to change to a specialism later on?

Thanks.

Well, even if you applied for a specialism you will first be offered a place for the General LLM. Within the first 2 induction weeks they offer you the chance to see all the courses and choose your specialism then. So no need to worry, you can still choose the specialism you prefer in September.

Thanks IP007!

Also, did anyone apply to UCL here? and any insights on whether the differences between the UCL and QMUL LLM?

I think it depends a bit on what specialism you would like to take (see the discussion here on the previous pages).
For me, I planned to apply at UCL and King's College as well, but as I am going to specialize in IP law and I saw that the courses are often held together at QMUL, I chose to take the offer of them as they seem to be more specialized in this field (as well as ADR methods etc.).
But for other specialisms you might want to ask some of the others.

You're right, I also applied here cause I'm interested in arbitration and it seems to be one their strengths. I'm also interested in commercial law and learning some IP law. Maybe I'll see some of you if I decide to do my LLM here :)

May I ask why the IP law specialism is such a popular choice ?

Hi! As far as i'm concerned when I applied I chose "Msc IP" instead of "LLM Ip" (stupid mistake, I was in a rush when I made my application because my internet connection was limited), and when I received the offer I realized it wasn't program I wanted to apply to, so I emailed the admissions office to know if I had to make a new application but they were very nice to me and directely transfered my application to the LLM programs, and two days later I got another offer.
Did you already pay the deposit? I think that once you pay the deposit you can still cancel your application but they won't give you the money back...

@RIT: After I accepted the offer, I received an email which also mentioned the following: 'If for any reason you decide not to take up your place, please inform us as soon as possible'. So I don't think there will be a problem if you wish to withdraw.

You can always withdra without any reasons by sending an email to the admissions office.
And deposits do only need to be paid by international students not coming from the UK or EU.
