I got my college offer on Tuesday!

It will be a long wait :D

Does anyone know how long after the departmental offer comes the one from college? It says that it can take up to 8-10 weeks, which seems quite a long wait

Wow, congratulations! Did you receive it that fast because of a scholarship?

Hi Guys,

First of all, congratulations for those of you who were accepted. As a potential applicant for MLF and MJur the next application window, I'd like to roughly assess my chances and decide whether it is worth bothering with the whole definitely time-consuming process. 

I graduated from the 2nd best university in my home country (in the EU) approx. 5 years ago; I did a master's degree in law (overall grade - 4.7/5.0, summa cum laude, scholarship in one year). During my studies I did 2 years' English law course organised in cooperation between my uni and a charity from the University of Cambridge (awarded diploma with merit).  Then I did a postgraduate degree at the best business school in my home country (overall grade 5/5) related to the energy market. Ever since my studies I have been working at international law firms. I am currently a senior associate at arguably the best law firm in my home country and qualified attorney-at-law. I am dealing with energy projects (m&a, project finance, regulatory). 

I consider MLF degree to be a superb opportunity for me to switch my career from pure law practice to investment banking or infrastructure fund. If this path will not play out, I would settle for an opportunity of having a break from stressful work for a year and maybe relocation to one of the London firms afterwards (Mjur). I am giving you this background because I am rather not academic-type person, but I definitely have a good idea for an application essay ;)

I might have missed it but what were your undergrad grades?Do you have any indication of your ranking or prizes/scholarships from that? I believe Oxford places the most weight on undergrad achievements because that is the most fair measure, especially since not everyone would have had a chance to take postgraduate courses. Your postgrads will of courses still be taken into account, and they sound fine. 

From what you have described, I think you have a stronger shot at the MLF, just because they seem to value work experience more (the Mjur is a lot more academic-focused). Although there is no harm in applying to both, especially since you can submit the same written work. 

I do have to point out that the course will be very demanding and rigorous, and could be more stressful than your current work. It is something to bear in mind if you are planning on treating this as a ‘break’ from your stressful work. Alththe type of work is different so I suppose it might be a nice change if you are finding things to be a bit too tedious at work.

Hi! Many thanks for your answer, it's helpful. In my country as in most continental Europe you are doing law degree for 5/6 years and undergrad is not a requirement to enrol (i.e. you can do law degree straight after high school). Indeed, MLF definitely seems like a better shot for me and I plan concentrate on this.

The college offer is, generally, only due 8-10 weeks after your departmental offer (I can only speak as an MJur offer holder, so I don't know about the deposit - which course are you applying to?)

No, you pay the deposit (and the fees) to the college, so you have to get a college place first

According to the website: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/after-you-apply/decision-timeline

"If you are applying to a course with college membership and were accepted by the academic department, you are guaranteed a college place. [...] If you chose a college in your application and the college is not able to accept you then you will be notified as early as possible, often around 4 to 6 weeks after the departmental decision date, and you will be automatically considered by other colleges."

So I believe there is nothing to worry about :) If I remember correctly, they will try to find you a college which offers you funding, if this is not the case, they will arrange for a place, but I don't know their exact criteria, most likely it is simply whether the course is available at a college and whether they have places

Hello,

I really needed your inputs on my ability to withdraw my acceptance from the BCL programme. When I first received the certificate of offer, it only mentioned the dates by which certain conditions were to be met. So I accepted the offer and have left the compliance with the conditions like couriering my orginal transcript in abeyance. Today I received an offer from Linacre. The offer says I have to communicate my acceptance by 31 July 2022. And my acceptance will constitute a formal contract with the college. So as I understand, if I want to be able to withdraw from the BCL programme, I can choose to not accept the college place by 31 July 2022. Let me know if my understanding is correct. I am  waiting to hear back on my scholarship/grant applications, hence the question.

Yeah, if you reject the college, you also automatically reject your offer. But 31 July is far away from today, potentially you will be able to secure funding by then :)

Unfortunately it is not possible. As far as I remember, the website expressly states that this is only available to research students.
