Hey! I feel a little dejected since I was not able to secure a scholarship. I want to join academia. I am seriously considering whether I should pursue BCL without any funding.

I feel you, I completely share your dejection, especially as I'm also planning to go to academia. However, there are two things to be taken into consideration. Firstly, the funding period is not over, not all awards have been decisioned, it's still possible to find the much-awaited email in your mailbox. Secondly, don't forget that the BCL is one of the most coveted and most selective postgraduate degrees in common law countries (and in the world), so the competition is fierce, especially later on for the scant scholarships. Scholarships are extremely rare: according to postgrad statistics, only 1 application is succesful from 5 and only 15% of admitted students receive funding (including full or partial). You are competing with the world's best students for funding, not receiving it doesn't devaluate your competences, although can pose serious financial problems.

When considering pursuing the degree, weigh the potential return on it: even it might be expensive, perhaps it can boost your chances to realize your plans in the future and secure better jobs.

Thank you for your response! That does make me feel better. Maybe need to look at things in a larger context.

Has anyone heard back re: department fee support?


Hello! Today I heard back from the department and I was awarded a part of the tuition fee. Hope you are awarded financial aid too.

I have a question. Is the financial aid award the only means of scholarship sourced from Oxford or can we also expect a second scholarship from our prospective college (still in college limbo)? I did not receive any award offer for the scholarships I applied for during the application by the way.

If there is no chance to be awarded the other part of my tuition fee from a college, I should immediately look for other options.

Thank you! I only specifically applied for the financial aid award, if it is the same thing you mentioned. I believe its deadline was 2 weeks after I received the offer.

I am an Mjur offer holder. 

Have any body received both the need-based scholarship and Law Faculty Mjur scholarship?

Hi,

Does anybody know if it is possible to be admitted to the BCL if you already hold an LLM from a foreign university?

I have heard mixed reports on this but am unable to find any mention on the Oxford website.


Thanks,

Hi all - I'm preparing the application for MLF, just wondering if it's common to submit standalone 2,000 words essay instead of an extract of a longer piece. I've located some past threads it seems like many have submitted the extracts of their undergrad dissertations. If so, do you know if Oxford would also view the original piece of the (10,000 words) dissertation? I'm preparing a draft now but wary that the quality would be impacted by the length of the essay given 2,000 is roughly a 5 pager and there is not a lot Oxford can assess... thanks v much in advance!

Yeah it is ok to submit a standalone essay. When you submit an extract, it is usually caveated that it is only an extract and you can introduce some brief general info in the abstract, but, apart from that, the uni will not see anything else.
