I'm applying for the BCL. 

A little confused on college preferences since I would gladly go to whichever college offers me financial aid (if any) :P But, does that mean I have to make an open application to be eligible for all aid or can I give my preferences but still be considered for scholarships other colleges might offer?

Any info would be really helpful.

Hi, I'm a current Oxford student, so feel free to ask questions about the process :) 


Hello! Regarding the MJur, how competitive is the admission process? Does the committee focus on specific traits when deciding on an application? And how relevant is an applicant's English score (TOEFL, IELTS etc.)?

Thank you for being so solicitous!

Hi, 

The MJur programme is competitive (you can tell that from the applicants/offer ratio on the Faculty's website) and what Oxford is looking for in particular is strong academics (A first class degree, good references from professors who know your work and your academic abilities well, and a piece of academic writing that showcases your ability to think critically and to conduct academic research as well as your legal writing skills.) These are basically all the traits that you need to have :)

RE the English language score: I think it's just a benchmark. You have to meet it in order to be considered but applicants won't be rejected for having a slightly lower score than others

Does not make a difference. They will make you move colleges afterwards if necessary.

Hi, I'm a current Oxford student, so feel free to ask questions about the process :) 

Hi! First of all, thank you very much!
I have a couple of questions regarding my Mjur application.
First, I want to use all the time until the deadline (21 January) and will probably apply about 15-20 January. Is this a disadvantage for my application?
Second, I currently do not have an IELTS of TOEFL that fulfills the mjur requirements. I was planning to apply without an English certificate, as it is possible to provide the certificate later. Is this risky? I mean, should I provide my English certificate together with my application?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

No, that's not a disadvantage; no one will look at the apps until after the deadline.

RE the English certificate: ideally, it would be good to provide your certificate with your application. If you don't do it, you might be offered an offer with a condition of scoring XY points in the English language exam, which might be harder than just meeting the minimum requirements for the app.

Thank you very much for your quick answer! I am applying to Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, and Harvard, Columbia, NYU. In fact, my heart desires Oxbridge or Harvard.  However, most people say "apply to all of them, increase your chance for an offer". The process is very exhausting, I could not even get the Toefl yet. My question is, should I only concentrate on the universities I really want to get in, or should I apply to all of the six universities? I really wonder your opinion. 1f92f

Hmm, I applied to Oxford only, but I think applying to more universities would increase your chances of getting in somewhere. I know Harvard has a tough application process and it takes a lot of time to complete. Cambridge, on the other hand, is a bit easier (but also gives you fewer chances to showcase your abilities). Try to plan your applications and see how many apps of good quality you will be able to submit :)

If you have your heart set on Oxbridge and the Ivies, and is unlikely to take up offers from elsewhere, then there is no point making that many applications. Conversely, if you just want an LLM/postgrad, and getting an offer to study is more important to you, then defo apply to a few 'back-up' options.

I was in the same position - I originally wanted to apply to UCL/LSE/Durham as my back up, but I ended up struggling to simultaneously apply and study for exams. However, I knew I would realistically only take up offers from Oxbridge and would be willing to reapply, which is why I ended up only applying to Oxbridge.

So in summary, it depends on how committed you are to Oxbridge/Harvard, and whether you will be okay with reapplying if you do not have an offer to fall back on.

Thank you for your opinion! :)
Just need another quick answer to a question: I am taking IELTS in five days, only my scores, not the hard copy certificate will be available at the time of my application to Cambridge. Do they require the IELTS certificate or just a scan of the scores that are sent by e-mail is enough?

Yes, you are right! Since my mind is not "go for an LLM, whatever it is" I should focus on what I really want. I should really not apply to American universities with this mind. Thank you for your opinion! :)
