Hi! A quick question to those who applied for KCL. I'm currently applying for KCL for LLM. Does the personal statement need to be confine to 4000 characters or I could upload a longer version? Thanks!

If you will upload it as a file you can send two-pages statement but no more.

Is the LL.M Programme in International Law at UCL good? As I am interested in specializing in Public International Law I have some doubts about its LLM Programme. I got an offer from UCL and KCL (still waiting on LSE), which one should I pick?

Hey guys! I have a question for those that got an offer from UCL. Yesterday I received an offer as well but I don't think I have a deadline to respond. Is that possible? I have read the letter and the email and they don't state anything about me having to respond in 4 weeks.
I am still waiting on LSE and Cambridge. Thank you.

Hi guys I just wanted ideas about funding for my LLM to UCL. Where can Africans get funding for this program and again does UCL give loans or grants.

Hi guys, if given offers by UCL, LSE and Georgetown (US) for LLM International Business Law, which would you pick? I did my undergrad LLB at UCL and would like a change but don't know if Georgetown prestige is worth the money over LSE/UCL

Hey, guys. I just received an offer from LSE, which took about 8 weeks from the day I sent my application.

The offer is conditional because they say I have to send them official proof of my academic degrees (LLB and LLM). However, I had sent them all the transcripts and certificates related to the degrees, electronically, so I didn't understand this condition. Is anyone in a similar situation?

LSE has also asked me to pass the IELTS - my overall score in TOEFL was 110, which is better than the overall score LSE requires in the IELTS, but in the writing section I scored 26, which is slightly lower than the score they want in this section, 27. Do you know if in this case LSE accepts that we attend an English summer course there instead of taking another English exam?

Tks in advance!


Attending an English summer course from my perspective is a complete waste of money. It's my personal opinion in your case. You've nearly reached the minimum requirement, so if I were you I'd retake the English exam. With max 2 months of practice from your current linguistic level (especially since you've confronted with the exam) you should be fine. Stay strong and have faith. Best of luck.

P.S.: for 1 point below I think they're exaggerating. Can't you just try negotiating with them? Place a call on Monday and see what you can do.

I'd take LSE. They have a better reputation (the name speaks for itself (eh)). Georgetown sounds great but it's too expensive. Plus the rankings should give you some guidance.

UCL has some Scholarships, check their website (though they're not very encouraging). You can also apply for a Postgrad loan from Student Finance, but I'm not aware of the T&A. Alternatively various bodies (both public and private) are offering research Scholarships.

The personal statement needs to be no more than 4000 characters, unless otherwise required by the particular program. Thus, you had better comply with this requirement.
By the way, I have received an offer from the KCL.

Thanks. might you know of any other agencies/bodies that support the same. A loan of $20,000 or so would be too much a strain to repay.

Congrats Enyaw!

My application completed on 17 December so I guess I have to wait for my decision next month.

Do you plan to accept the offer and take a pre-sessional course? Or wait for the results from other places?

Hi everyone,

I want to apply for a LLM program in PIL at LSE and KCL. Since I saw that many of you applied in November or December, I ask myself whether it will be a waste of time to apply at this time of the year ?

Thank you !
