LLM UCL 2013-14


If you're international and never studied in England before you get UCL/UoL owned accommodation, if not you have to look into the private sector basically.

I have just received my unconditional offer. However, I believe I won't be taking up my place, as Cambridge seems to suit me better as far as my interest in public int'l law goes. They took a little more than six weeks to reach a decision.

Hello,
I am applying for LLM programme at UCL this year . I have brilliant academic credentials as I have been the topper throughout and have been recipient of different Merit scholarships since 2006 till date i.e. final year of my B.A,L.L.B(H) programme in India.My education since pre primary till date has been in English medium only but I am pretty confused on the point that I have not appeared in any of the English language proficiency test so whether am I supposed to appear in any of the verification of language ability examination or the waiver request for same by my University Professor would solve the purpose as the waiver request is being accepted in most of the Universities.If you could guide me on this matter It will really be helpful to me.

Frankly, I am not quite sure I have understood your question properly. In my opinion, either calling them on the phone or emailing them could be helpful, especially if you do want to apply for a waiver.

Apart from that, I hold an unconditional offer for UCL, but I would like to ask around whether the decisions on financial aid should come along with the admission offer or are left to a subsequent stage. Does anyone know anything about the matter? I have to confess that to me UCL lost much of its appeal when Ronald Dworkin passed away, but I still believe it is a top choice for the study of international law: I would definitely and gladly consider it as an option if they granted me some form of scholarship...

You read my mind, I was going to ask exactly the same

Hi,

Most law schools have a list of countries that are considered to be native speakers of the English language. Sadly though, some countries with good English language background are not listed. Most schools allow a waiver of language proficiency tests upon the request of the applicant, which should be accompanied by a school certificate saying that the medium of instruction at the university is in English. I believe we are in the same situation. English has been the medium of instruction since I attended preschool, and all domestic laws and judicial decisions in my country are likewise in English. But I found it rather taxing to request for a waiver from each school that I applied to. So I just took the TOEFL. :)

Howdy fellas, does any of you know anything about the timing of scholarship-related decisions? I take that they will take significantly longer, but maybe some of you have spoken with faculty personnel and knows more about the time frame :)

Thanks!

I haven't heard anything, however, I was thinking, do they let us know even if we haven't gotten one? I mean, everyone is automatically entered for relatively few scholarships.

You should send an e-mail to admissions! I did (have been waiting 5 weeks) and that's how I found out I was being recommended for an offer (while unofficial it's still good news!)

I'd also recommend speaking to admissions; if it gets past six weeks you're certainly entitled to!

Where are you guys from?

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of the chances of getting an offer if you have been reccomended by the admissions tutor for one?

in regard to scholarships, found it on the website:
Notification of scholarship results
Scholarship applications are judged by UCL academics. In the case of schemes funded or co-funded by external organisations, an initial selection of applicants chosen by a panel of UCL academics may be put before a panel convened by the funding organisation. The selection process generally takes 6-8 weeks from the deadline although, in some cases, the process may take longer, particularly if external sponsors are also involved. Successful applicants will be notified by email and receive an official award offer by mail to the mailing or correspondence address provided in the Scholarship application.

So, the deadline is 1st of March, plus 6-8 weeks, hopefully in April
