LLM UCL / KCL / LSE / QMUL 2017-18


In the situation that you have 2 offers, one conditional on obtaining a certain grade and the other not, what do you do? How do you prepare everything like housing and accepting when you'll probably only know by the summer which offer you'll pick? (my preference goes to the conditional offer ofc :))

Hi,
Any UK UCL applicants out there?
Does anybody have any advice on finding graduate accommodation since UCL doesn't offer it for domestic applicants?

thanks :)

I know this is a dumb question but I was looking at my application for KCL and i noticed that I had forgotten to write my phone number in the form, and I couldn't edit anymore. So I sent a message to the admissions office about that ptoblem. But then I noticed that you can add your phone number in your account details and it then changes the form... Should I send them another email saying that I've found the solution or just let it be and don't bother the office anymore ?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if there is any deposit to pay for QMUL. And what's the deadline to pay for it. It is not quite clear on their website.

I've got a conditional offer from KCL but as I won't know if I fulfil the conditions before July, I wanted to have a backup solution. That's why I thought about applying to QMUL in order to go QMUL if I don't have KCL. Nevertheless, I don't want to pay another deposit if I finally reach my conditions for KCL.

Thanks :)

Hi, I am applying for the full-time LL.M. programme. I want to specialise in International Business Law. I had some doubts regarding the application process.

How long should my personal statement be? What questions should it address?
Do I need to submit a writing sample as well? If yes, how long should my writing sample be?
Do I also need to upload my CV/resume?

I would be grateful to you if you could answer my queries. The online prospectus and the FAQs do not address these.

Hi,

Need some help. Is it too late to apply to KCL, UCL, QMUL, Edinburgh?
LSE is already full, but these universities don't have any seat availability indicators on their websites. Just wondering if anyone had any advice? Thanks

It is difficult to give you an answer: we all choose one LLM and we can testify only for this LLM.

It depends on so many -personal- factors: the reputation of the university in your country, modules you want to attend, alumni in law firms you would like to apply and so on...

Personally I choose the LLM in International Financial Law at KCL and I have no regret. It is a great experience and I have met wonderful people from 63 countries! In France KCL is very prestigious (better than UCL, QMUL or LSE) and according to rankings the LLM in Financial Law is one of the best worldwide (5th according to this website). I wanted to expand my knowledge in financial regulation and I took very interesting modules like EU Financial Regulation, Financial Risk, Stability & Regulation and also Competition Law in Financial Services. Some other students are focus on "pure" financial law and Professor Ravi Teneekoon is a top gun for them. Look all the modules available on the website. What I like at KCL is that I can choose all my modules: I also decided to take Negotiation, Global Law in Climate Change... even though they are not directly linked to financial law!
For all my modules my professors have invited guest lecturers and it was very well appreciated.
It is also important to say that KCL, the KCL Law Society and the Post Graduate Law Society organize a lot (it is impressive) of events with firms, law firms or social activities. I know it is not the same for all universities.
At KCL we also have a good relationship with LSE law students and we have some events together. In contrast, we never met any UCL or QMUL students at events organized by LSE, KCL or law firms.

I hope it helps and that students from other universities will do the same ;-)

PS : QMUL is 25 in law in the UK according the The Complete University Guide and 37 worldwide for QS. It is not impressive at all for me.

UCL and Edinburgh require responses from offer holders this week to secure a place. KCL requires a response by the end of April. I think there will still be a chance to secure a spot once people start making decisions and declining offers. I think you might have missed the deadline for UCL scholarships though.

I just received an email from KCL saying that there was an update regarding my application but that that could mean a new message or a decision...

I went there and there was nothing different. However, I received a message from the admissions office this morning answering a question of mine, so I suppose that the email that they sent me was referring to that, right? It is just weird that they only sent the email now when I had seen the message at 10 am.

Hello to everyone!

Has anyone requested extension for the tuition fee deposit to UCL? I haven't decided yet where to go, UCL or LSE, and the deadline for UCL is near.

Thank you in advance


I'm also in the same boat, although haven't requested an extension yet.

I'm leaning towards UCL as its module options are more in line with my career aspirations, namely the commercial bar. UCL seems to be stronger in private law and has a few more 'big dogs' for this area (Ben McFarlane and Charles Mitchell) plus it has dedicated unjust enrichment module as well as commercial remedies and international and commercial trusts option.

I think LSE has a better reputation globally, but for me, it's more important to be studying modules I'm interested in rather than just putting a big name university on my CV.

That's just me though, what area are you looking to go into/specialise in?

yes, I'm guessing it is quite busy time now because of today's deadline, and from what I've read it could take around 6 weeks for them to make a decision :( where else did you apply? and for which programme?

oh you're right... But I hope they're quick, the wait is killing me and it's only been 10 days ahah... I've only applied to KCL yet for the general LLM (but i'm thinking of doing the international Business Law specialism) and you?

I applied for the general too (I did not seem to see specialism to choose when applying, I might have missed something), I am thinking of doing competition. Still nothing though, hopefully we will hear back soon! :)

At KCL all applications are made to the general programme by default, specialisms can be chosen afterwards (and apparently the system is very flexible). So no worries :)
