It depends. I worked as a research assistant despite being a taught student, just look out for opportunities. It is true, however, that RA jobs are usually aimed at research students.



Hi, Does anyone of you know if it is possible to work as a research assistant at a chair during the MJur study?



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

Just to be sure: if I receive a college offer and I accept it now will I still be able to get to another college if it offers me a scholarship? Or if I accept the offer now I won’t be able to accept the scholarship at another college? (It’s just a hypothetical scenario ;))

Hi! If you don't mind me asking, Is it usually easy to get such a position if you're a research student? How much does it usually pay?

The pay is good, around £15 per hour. I have no idea how exactly difficult it is to get a RA job, but I'd say it's very difficult (there is a big competition for RA jobs). That being said, I also worked for my college as a summer outreach programme tutor and as an admission aid, so there is plenty of opportunities for work.

Yes, you accept the initial college offer. In case of a scholarship from another college they will transfer you from the original college, once you accept the scholarship (this was my experience last year).

Cool! Thanks for your clarification :)) also do you know when are they usually making scholarships decisions?

Maybe somebody knows: 

My offer letter states that the MJur starts on 26 September 2022. Yet, the term only starts on 9 October (https://www.ox.ac.uk/about/facts-and-figures/dates-of-term). Do the BCL/MJur usually start prior to the beginning of the term?

Hi - the classes would start on the 9th. The two weeks from the 26th-9th are for orientation sessions, and for you to pick your courses, do the library tours etc. Colleges also organise a bunch of introductory social events in this period.

Had the same query as the poster above, any idea when scholarship decisions are released?

Unfortunately, if I'm not mistaken, most of these procedures are not transparent in a sense that unsuccessful applicants are not notified (only a deadline is given as a guidance that selected applicants will likely receive a response by that time) and websites are not updated about them, so it's unlikely that we will have general updates on that. But we can and we should notify each other to know whether the scholarships are on the way!
If I understood correctly, scholarship results may come at any time, as different funding bodies are disposing over separate funds. I think that large, uni-wide programmes, e.g. Clarendon and WHT, usually reach out in early April, while college funding may come with the college offer, the faculty's means tested by the end of May and the departmental scholarship only in June.

Got offer from Brasenose college. They told me that I can accept the offer by returning the signed financial declaration form (which I cannot do now, as my funding is yet to be confirmed)

Is this how it works for all?

This wasn't the case with me. Worcester gave me a deadline to accept their offer by the 3 May, while they only require the financial declaration form by 30 June - which seems reasonable, because my offer states that I still could be reallocated after accepting the offer from Worcester if another college would offer me a scholarship
