MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice - Oxford


Has anyone been admitted to the MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice at Oxford? If anyone has already done the course I would be very interested in hearing your experience.

Also, does anyone have an opinion on whether the MSc would be a better choice than an LLM at LSE focussing on crim?

I think Oxford is definitely better than LSE. I saw your posts in another forum. I can say that after working in big law firms previously, Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge etc are worldwide brand name. LSE or Columbia etc is good but not so famous that any Tom, Dick and Harry will know them. In the end, partners from big law firms don't care about the cert or content of your course but rather which school you are from.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I have been admitted to both. Also to NYU but thats financially impossible for me at the moment. I am still labouring over the decision, I am just not sure that I am ready to specialise in criminology and criminal justice. Even thinking of reapplying for llm/bcl at oxbridge at the end of the year because my grades actually got altered recently so I would have much greater chances of being accepted if I reapplied. Have you applied or been admitted?
