just to clarify - I will be at LSE! NZ plays Chile in the last friendly this evening... (last sidetracking email on this thread. and I completely agree re England's chances - as usual expectations here are high, and we'll be in national mourning when England gets knocked out in the semis...)


Legalalien..you will be at LSE..yay...which specialisim if any? Please don't say Commercail law...For you , I will cheer for NZ.The mood here is electrifying and I know this an LLM site but how can we ignore the biggest sport event in the world.:)

hej all,

I also got an offer from UCL - i'de like to start the LLM in international business law.

though, i'm still doubting between UCL and the LLM in Aix.

last question: is there, next to the offer letter and reply form anything else I should receive from the admissions office? (I ask this cause something went wrong with my mail, and I still did not receive the letter in paper form although the letter was send on the 1st of June. instead the admissions office send me a fax with the letter)

Wow, what a small world! All the best for your upcoming admission! What made you decide to leave practice? I did quite a bit of paralegal work for the TAC branch in Khayelitsha when i was a student. Great experience (and great people).

I am shifting towards business because there is a lot more variety in course choice. The PIL seems great too but i cant seem to identify with many of the courses offered. Will definitely attend the course intros during orientation week to help me gain pespective though.

Are you catching any of the footie matches at Green Point? :)

Hello All!

I also received an offer from UCL!
It was a very scary time for me because I applied at late stage (30 march) and when I saw that a lot of others on this site applied even in 2009 I got scared and thaught that all places were already full. However, I received offers from UCL and Kings. So even if you apply at a late stage, there still is hope! And off course...If you don't try to gett in, then you will never get in!

For me, it is a difficult decission now... UCL or Kings?!
I am leaning slightly towards Kings because of there excellent reputation on financial law. Moreover, because I still have to fulfill the language conditions and Kings requires less points.
On the other hand, UCL is maybe a bit more prestigous and they offer a broad range of courses...

Saturday I will have to do the IELTS test and according to my score I will decide. An presessional language course at UCL isn's a option any more. On there site they wrote that there are only limited places for the eight week course and I am only able to attend a five weeks course.. Difficult dilema's!

Anyway, I wish you all the best of luck and maybe we see each other in September!

Hi NLgoesUK, best of luck with your test. Regardless of which you university you end up choosing, Im sure you have a great time.

But on the pre-sessional course thing, depending on your score, youll be able to attend the 5-week course at UCL. Take a look at the language centre webpage they provide fully detailed information on the course. The same apply to Kings

Is anyone aware of the deadline for submitting Toefl scores to UCL/KCL? I currently have a conditional offer dependent on meeting their English proficiency requirements.

I am planning to appear on 10th July and quite nervous about it. Also is there anyone from India going to either of these. Could use some guidance on Loan and visa formalities

Here's what I found on the UCL page - International students are invited to participate in an orientation course run by the UCLs International Office before the start of the academic session. For students from outside the UK, there are also lectures on the British constitution, sources of English law and the working methods of the common law system.

Is this taking place at the start of the term? or during orientation 22th-24th september? or earlier? I can't find any information on the mentioned additional lectures for the international students. Any toughts?

Thanks!

I would like to know if there is any international student heading to UCL who are still waiting to receive the CAS number, because that is my case.

The Admissions Office does´t reply my emails or answer the phone. Someone told me that they are ignoring the phone due to the vast amount of work. So I called another number but the lady refused to put me in contact with the Admissions Office and said that I need to wait, they might send me something by mail in the next 10 days, but the problem is that I live in South America and all the letters I got from UCL took almost one moth to arrive here.
I asked a friend who is arlready in London to go there and talk to the Admissions and the guy said that they havent yet issued any CAS number, which is not true because I talked to a few international studenst and by now they all have their CAS numbers. The guy also said that they will let me now my MAIL (!) asap.
They seem to be very to be very desorganized and insensitive I might miss classes due to their delay.
I dont know what to do now...

Hi there, I haven't received a CAS from UCL either yet. They said that they would have it to me by the 15th, but that was 5 days ago. Check in again in about a week.

Visa letters no longer accepted

All Tier 4 student applications made inside or outside the UK now require a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) with the application. Tier 4 student visa applicants will need to be provided with a CAS reference number and sponsor licence number"

Have you all tried getting in touch with the Faculty of Laws? I know theyre not responsible for this kind of issue, but maybe they can pull some strings and help you out on this... I've sent them a couple of emails about other issues and they reply rather fast...
