LSE/KCL/UCL/Oxf/Camb - applications for 2015/2016


JBME1986

Hi guys,
I'm planning to apply for 2015/2016 LLM Program at LSE, KCL, UCL, Cambridge and Oxford and I have 1 question: does anyone know if it is possible, when applying online, to attach copies of the original references (on institutional or official headed paper and signed by the referee) instead of having to ask each referee to submit it?
This would make it much easier.
Many thanks!
J.

Rana07, it is incredibly annoying when people flood multiple threads on this forum with the same question.

It does not make it more likely that you will get a response to your question, and if anything it makes it less likely because it is so aggravating.

What kind of a response are you expecting out of me. Please don't read the post or delete the notification or delete the automated email. It is as simple as that.

Aggravating and annoying.. Really..?
I'm in search of an answer to my simple question/query.
Answer that, instead of polluting your self-centered philosophical nonsensical deranged response.

- I'm not like this; you asked for it. Period.

Rana, tbh, the last comment was right, you shoud have just asked your question in one thread instead of posting it in lots , there was no point really in doing that

No, Oxford does not accept on a first come basis, they gather all of the applications (by the relevant deadline) then consider them all together, and release their decisions mid-end of March

Hi everyone, I've obtained my degree in law in July and I'm planning to apply for 2015/2016 LLM Program at LSE. Since I can' t find all the information I need on the website, I wanted to ask you guys:
1) can I submit my application even though I don't meet the language requirements ( I received my TOEFL scores few days ago and I' ve scored 106 as overall, unfortunately LSE requires 109, but I've met all the minimum scores required as for speaking, listening, writing and reading)?

2) other than the two letters of reference, my personal statement and the transcript of my previous studies, do I need to supply my plan of study in advance (I mean the courses I' m planning to attend in case of successful application)?

3) as for the letters of reference, do I need to send them via online application or does LSE requires them to be sent directly by the professors?

Thanks :)

2) No you dont need a plan of study, besides that just your CV

3)the professors have to send directly, you just put their names and email adress.

hope it helps!

Thanks for answering, I' ve got a couple more questions.
1) Is it ok if I use the europass form for my CV?

2) As for the plan of study, I' ve read on the LSE website (can' t remember what page exactly, sorry) that your chances to be amditted (other than the usual requirements) depend also on the coherence of the courses you' ve chosen to take, but how can I choose if I'm not supposed to send any plan of study? Sorry, I don't know how to put it any less confused, hope that I' ve made myself clear.
Thanks :)

no problem. 1) sorry, I don't know about the europass form. I made a regular CV, with 2 pages.

2) Now I understand. In the online form, they demand that you fill in blanks the subjects you would choose during the LLM, in your order of preference. They have in the website a list of mandatory subjects of each LLM and in the form you have to find these subjects and put in an order of preference, up to 6 subjects you would chose.

So I based my choice in the list of regular subjects of my LLM (law) and I chose by my order of preferece - I didnt know they considered this as a criteria for being admitted.

I just think is important to choose subjects of your area of choice, but among these I dont think it makes much difference..

Hi!
Thank your for your messages everyone. It helps a lot!
I have a few more questions (I am sorry if the answer seems obvious but I just want to me sure) :
Are you bound by the subjects you choose to take when filling in the form ?
Do you have to provide translated transcripts in order to submit your application, or can you provide them later on ?
Finally, do you think I am stil on time to apply to the LSE ? I know I am still on time to apply but since the applications started at the end of December I have no idea of my chances to get an offer by now...
Thanks!!!

no problem! Im glad I could help.

- I dont know if we are bound, but I dont believe so - I hope not cause I didnt research a lot, I just saw the options and according to the titles chose what it seemed more interested to me.

- I think is mandatory the translation - I send it

"D. Transcripts/mark sheets and proof of existing qualifications
You should submit scanned versions of your transcripts with your online application. Documents must be translated by an accredited translator if the original is not in English. You must ensure that information in scanned documents is clear and legible. Failure to do so may cause delays to the processing of your application. You should also scan the reverse of your transcript if the mark scheme is explained there. From the outset you may also choose to submit these documents by post, but please remember that your application cannot be submitted until we have received and processed them."

- yes I think you still have time, I think is better if you can make it until the end of the month/ early december.

I just finished mine two days ago.

good luck!
