Motivational statement LLM Cambridge


boso7
Hello

I am planning on applying to the LLM programme 2014 in Cambridge. If I am informed correctly you do now have to upload a statement of purpose as supporting documentation however I have heard that when applying online you have to answer three questions regarding your motivation for applying to the programme. Is that true? And if so what are the questions exactly?

Thank you for any help!

Hi,
I'm also considering applying for the Cambridge LLM.
You've specified the amount of lines the application allows for these sections, could you give a rough idea of how many words this would translate to?
Thanks in advance.

Hi kml209, good luck with your application this year !

I don't exactly remember how many words I wrote. So I have calculated the approximate maximum word number considering that each line should not exceed 130 characters and found out that you will be able to write approximately 160 - 170 words.

I hope you are not growing too tiresome of my questions, but could I ask you about A14?
Do most people leave this blank or should you expand on extra-curricular activities included on your CV?
Also, if it's included on your CV in sufficient detail, I take it you shouldn't bother mentioning it again here?
Perhaps stupid questions...
Thanks again!

If I understand correctly, the questions 2 & 3 are to make up the personal statement, and there is no need to upload another document later, right?

I didn't write a word there.

Mainly because I don't have any extracurriculars.

Still got admitted.

Does Q. 12 need to be answered as well for the LLM application?

Also, the deadline for submission of application is 15th Nov, while that for submission of references is 1st December, right?
