LLM UCL / KCL / LSE / QMUL 2019-20


Been following this thread for some time now. Thought I would share some information from my own situation.
-Applied to QMUL on Nov. 12 and received a conditional offer on Nov. 30.
-Applied to KCL also on Nov. 12 and received a conditional offer on Dec. 13.
-Received applicant ID for LSE on Feb. 1 and have yet to hear back and no transcript movement but not expecting a decision for two more weeks.
-Completed application for UCL on Feb. 12 so not expecting a decision for two more weeks.


wow, that was fast with QMUL. What condition you have to fulfill?


I am in my third and final year of law school in the US, so my condition for QMUL is to graduate with at least an overall 3.2 GPA. Condition for KCL is to graduate with an overall minimum 3.5 GPA.

I've got offers from KCL and Edinburgh., Still waiting for Oxford because they sent me an email saying that they're considering me. No idea where to go. Well, if Oxford accept me then the choice is simple. However, what would you choose? KCL or Edinburgh? KCL seems to be higher in the rankings but I'm not a great fan of London and living 1.5h from the uni does not seem fun either.. Any tips? haha

They basically said that they are unsure at this stage and they would like to compare my application together with those that came in after the March deadline. They added that "I may still be offered a place." So I guess I've got maybe 20% chance? 25%? Something around that

forgive me if this is a stupid question: but wasn't there only one deadline for Oxford's BCL in January? is there also a March deadline?

Oh sorry I forgot to mention that the course I'm being considered for at Oxford is the Msc in Taxation. My friend told me it's worth trying so I decided to give it a go.

Hi everyone!
I just received a rejection from UCL. The weird thing is that I've submitted my application on the 27/02 and my references were completed only 3 days ago. I see that almost all of you waited for weeks if not months for an answer from UCL. How come they were so quick to reject me? I did not file my IELTS results... Maybe at this point this was a mistake!
Anyway I got an offer from QMUL (IP Law programme). What do you guys think of this programme? Anyone got in? :)

Sorry for this, but I think QMUL is a good place to pursue your dreams. I had to do a lot of thinking before preferring UCL over QMUL, but I think LLM from QMUL is respected so much. ALso I don't think the IELTS played any role in their decision considering I didn't have it but still had an offer from both QMUL and UCL (although rejection from KCL).
All the best.

Hi everyone,

I just received a conditional offer from LSE as well. So now the question is: UCL or LSE?

I am planning on specialising in competition law and both courses are very detailed for the exact sort of competition law I want to focus on—it’s relation to IP law, data privacy and e-commerce.

From my research UCL seems a bit more social which is what draws me to it.

As to LSE, it’s been my dream to study there since applying for LLB. So this is a dream come true. However, I fear that it will be very competitive and while I love competition, I feel like I might just end up feeling dumb and stressed.

Also, LSE seems to have better reputation internationally and sonce I’m an international student and it’s not guaranteed that I’ll be able to practice in the UK, LSE might be better choice for that reason.

Sorry for the long post but would really appreciate your opinions on to what extent my perceptions of these unis are true... thank you :)

Hi everyone,

These are my applications:

KCL - applied 23/01, conditional offer received 08/03
QMUL - applied 28/01, conditional offer received 14/02
LSE - ID received 21/02, no response yet

The deadline KCL have given me to respond to their offer is 26/04 so I'm worried that LSE won't get back to me before that. The 8 week mark from the point of receiving my LSE ID is 18/04. Should I give them a call if they haven't responded by then?

I have to say, you are in an extremely fortunate position to have this difficult decision! I personally would go to LSE, but simply because it is consistently ranked higher than UCL. I would not worry about being able to compete; you are clearly academically/professionally very accomplished simply because of the fact that both schools consider you to be of a quality deserving of admission. Congratulations!

If you received your ID on the 24 of January then you will likely hear, at the very earliest, on March 21. That date is the eight week mark after receiving your ID. Estimated wait times are between eight to ten weeks for a response, according to LSE's website.
