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.


Hello! I am an international student and do not have any information about a deposit neither in my offer, nor in my mysis account. Does this mean that I do not have to pay it? Do you happen to know if they have requested deposits from the other international students?

I heard they requested deposits from other interational students but only of those who are holding an unconditional offer.
So if you're a conditional offer holder don't worry: If mysis doesn't mention a deposit you don't have to pay one at the moment. This is at least what their website says.

Thank you for your answer. It was really useful. Do you, by chance, know the details about the choice of the modules - will we have to choose modules only from the LLM program, that we have chosen in our application or from all subjects? And can we, if our first choice program was, for example, Commercial and company law, choose all modules from Dispute resolution or IP law or any other program (and write our dissertation in this field)?

thank you again for your help.

I asked the admissions office the same question and their response was: 'You will be able to select your specialisation in the first two weeks of the term, following discussions with your course tutor. This can be a different specialisation from the ones you selected on your application form'. So everything is really flexible.

Thank you. That is really great, the program seems to be very flexible.

As far as I'm aware there was a bank holiday in England last week. I'd try to call them if you don't receive an answer by mid next week.

So guys we are almost there.... How many individuals of this blog will enjoy Queen Mary this september?

This year I have heared that Queen Mary has received a lot of application more than 800... It's a very high number.. .I believed only Universities such as LSE or Cambridge could receive so many applications...

I do not know... In my opinion 800 application accepted are a very high number.... I do not think that all 800 applicants will enjoy university in september... but I do not know...

Surely, I will enjoy the university in september like you... but what really scary me is that if we are many students attending this university then the competition to find a good job in the City will be terrible... considering also the fact that in the same year many individuals attend LSE, UCL, King's.. and so on... what do you think about this issue?

Anna: As far as I know they normally accept around 400-500 for the LLM, but I guess we'll get to know this in September :)

Roan: I don't think that all of those who graduate from a LLM in London will stay there. Look at all the countries people come from; I think most of them will return to their home countries (where they might be bar certified) and only a smaller quota will actually stay in the UK. So I wouldn't worry too much about this at this point in time. Guess they're having lots a career events at QMUL and in London in general. :)

Hi there!

Is anyone here taking up International Business Law as a specialism?

Also to add, I'm a fresh law grad with no legal work experience per se- would i be at a huge disadvantage by taking up an LLM? Just would like some feedback on the matter :)

Cheers!

Hey sya88,

you can join our facebook group "QMUL LLM 2013-14" to find out who else is taking your specialism.

And in my opinion, not having legal work experience when starting the LLM is no disadvantage. You're still used to study hard and I think lot of LLM students (not only at QM) join the programme without any legal work experience.

Thank you! But for some reason I am unable to find the group on Facebook.. Would you mind linking me the page? Have you (or anyone else on this thread for that matter) received your unconditional offer + CAS ?

Hey, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/579808402029830/

Well I don't need a CAS as I am an EU student. And I won't receive an unconditional before the end of August, as this is when I will get my final grading for my undergraduate course.

Hello everybody!!

I've been admitted to the LLM at Queen Mary but I found out that Queen Mary offers different programs that could be better in the same area.

I'm talking about the Certificate of IP Law and Certificate of Trade Mark and practice.
Indeed these two Certificates give you the exemption to 3/4 of the UK exam to become Trade Mark attorney, and according to an experienced law recruiter help you enter a law firm.

Does anybody know anything about that? Can anybody confirm that the LLM in IP Law doesn't give you any exemption to enter the job market afterwards?

Thanks.
