Oxford 2021-2022 BCL/MSCs/MJUR/MPHIL/MLF Applicants


BDMAUB



No bibliography is needed, but I would recommend adjusting the footnotes to oscola, especially if you are using cross-references. The preface is not included in the word count, but don't make it too long.




If you dont mind, would you please share your profile with us, i.e., which country you are from, class position, ECAs, working experience, publications etc. We could get a picture what kind of profile BCL accepts. Thank you in advance. 


Sure, however, I was not applying for the BCL. I'm from Poland (but nationality is not relevant in the apps), I have a First Class degree from a non-RG British university, I had one academic prize for the best dissertation, I had little work experience at the time of applying and no publications back then either. Regardless of who gets accepted and who doesnt't, it is always worth trying :) 



Thank you so much. You are very kind!

I received an offer for the BCL. I had a first class degree from a RG uni. I’m not sure what my ranking was in my undergraduate cohort as my uni did not give us details concerning this, but I did get the highest mark in my cohort in three modules. I received five academic/merit awards in my undergrad. In terms of work experience, I had quite a lot of voluntary legal experience and two vacation schemes. I had not published anything. It’s worth noting that everyone’s profile is different and unique in their own way. I hope this helps :)

The current status shown in the Self service portal is "Ready for assessment in January Deadline". Shall we get any other update in the portal before the actual rejection/offer? 

Thank you.

Does it show 'submitted but not processed yet' for anyone else? Hopefully all my documents are fine. 

I should not have applied 30minutes before the deadline.

Relax! Provided you have provided all your docs and your references and submitted, this will change in a day or two (it just gets checked by Graduate Admissions).

Hi guys. I put in my application for the BCL program hours before the Jan 22 deadline. However, one of my key recommenders was unable to upload their letter of recommendation on time and attempts to do it after the deadline were unsuccessful. I have since advised them to send the letter using the manual option. I am just wondering if the Department is likely to reject the letter on the basis that it was sent late. Also, does anyone know what weight Oxford places on each of the aspects of the application?

Oxford will be able to review your application as long as they receive 2 references before the deadline. The third can be submitted after the deadline.

Hello everyone!

My status currently says "
Your application can be or has been considered by the relevant academic department." 

Does anyone know if that is a good thing or not?

Thank you very much in advance.

Mine says exactly the same, so I reckon this is simply an indication that our applications are deemed complete (i.e. no documents are missing) and will be considered by the department :)

Yes, the survey is a regular procedure, as the faculty wants to know how applicants found the app process (not that they will do something about it :D)

Hello, I'm new to the thread and applying to the MJur. I have not received any survey. Do you mind telling me what it is?
