Hello to everyone!
I am thinking of applying to LSE and UCL. Do you think it's too late to apply to those schools, especially to LSE since it operates with rolling admissions?
Thank you!

I have been told that the LSE admission for 2017/18 is now closed as the course was already full. Having said that, I suggest that you try contacting them via Email first before proceeding further.

Did everyone get an offer via email or had to check the portals ?


For LSE, they sent me an Email warning that there was a change in my applicant's status. This urged me to check it in my portal. KCL and UCL just sent offers right to my Email notifying that I was accepted. All of them required me to reply to their offers through the portal anyways.

Would anyone be kind enough to advise the email address of LSE? I hope to email them to make an enquiry. Thank you.

Hi everyone, was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the LSE part-time situation.
I was in the middle of my application (awaiting references) and had selected full-time. However I got the email about the programme closure, but I'd still love to proceed with my application and try it part-time. Part-time has a different course code listed (M3U4) and I can still select it on my application form.

I was wondering if part-time applications are still being accepted. Does anyone have any info?

Thanks in advance and good luck with all of your applications!

EDIT: Should add I've already sent the Graduate team an email, but I'm in Japan (2am here) and just realised it was after 5pm on a Friday in the UK - would love to get everything sent off ASAP and there's a high chance I won't receive a response until Monday or later, so wanted to check if any of you guys had any info. Thanks again.

You don't need to pay an application fee for qmul llm, as far as i know.

Regarding the banking & finance ll.m. I've heard, from a friend who did the ll.m at LSE, that it's very regulation oriented.


Who is the crazy guy who said to do not consider queen mary for banking and finance law wich have one of the best program in the world for moduels selection? You can do bo regulation and transactional modules...you can also audit other classes...They have splitted modules. Who is that crazy? I am doing this LLM and I received an offer from a Magic Circle firm and my first degree is an italian one. Try to see how many modules KCL, UCL, LSE have...and how many are not delivered each year! KCL for example is more transactional! It has the great tecknokun. QMUL has Rosa Lastra for regulatory, the GREAT George Walker for finance law and banking. It has rodrigo carminal for corporate finace and M&A. guys are you well? Change drug dealer!


Haha best comment ever.
I wasn't commenting on the quality of qmul llm finance btw :) Just saying qmul didn't require an application fee as far as i know.

I also have to make the hard decision between qmul, kcl ucl (and maybe lse) for llm banking & finance...

financial law guys & girls, let us hear your voices!


Do you wnat to focus on regulation or transactional?

[quote][quote][quote][quote][quote][quote]Hi,
I applied for UCL KCL LSE last month and have already got offers from these three(LSE is the latest one). Now I am considering which one I really want to go for, given two factors: the course in which I'm interested (ฺBanking and Finance)and chances to get a great job following my graduation. Any idea or suggestions?[/quote]

1-LSE 2-UCL 3-KCL LSE is now ahead from the other 2 and between the other two it depends, UCL more diversed modules you can focus on banking law or corporate finance if you want, while KCL programme is more specific, more into regulation of financial markets specific products securitization etc basically the job you do on a law firm in the financial markets department since its director comes from one of the magic circle law firms and from that specific area. Can I ask you why you didn't even consider QMUL?

And for all of you worried about employability I think you can find this useful http://www.chambersstudent.com/where-to-start/newsletter/law-firms-preferred-universities
I also recommend the guardian, qs, shanghai, the times for employability and reputation.. with all of that you still may want to talk to some people who study there or to take a look on linkedin...in the end it's all up to you and your feelings about the unis/programmes.
[/quote]

Thank you for your kind response. I decided not to pay for QMUL registration because from what I have thoroughly researched, I've found that it's outstandingly famous for IP law ,and also its rank is far lower than those three aforesaid.(according to several institutions)[/quote]

Hello !

I am currently a student at King's College London (LLM in International Financial Law). Last year we also had a single topic for UCL / KCL / LSE / QMUL.
I don't advice you to do so ! They are all different : selection criteria, number of students, spirit and so on.

I advice to create a specific discussion. I find strange that several top UK universities are together when there is a topic for each US university !

You will see it will be useful ! Good luck ;-)


Hi, thank you for the advice, I am really interested in KGL, how has been your experience so far? for business do you think is better KCL or LSE?

I applied to QMUL 2 days ago and I got an unconditional offer! Are they usually so quick?


Usually! I was given an offer within 3 days of my application being sent off. It's great, but simultaneously annoying because you only have a month to accept or decline and LSE/UCL etc. take 6 weeks to respond!


The same for me: I applied last Sunday and got an offer on Tuesday. Still waiting for KCL and UCL, but I think I will opt for QMUL because of its reputation in arbitration (I hope it is the right choice

If you're talking about UCL, check your status after midnight UK time :) you should get an offer after that time

When I applied for King's, it took me around 6 weeks to go from "submitted" to receiving my conditional offer. So don't worry about that - although you can always send them a message asking for an update regarding your application, if that reassures you. They're extremely helpful :)
