Oxford 2022-2023 BCL/MSCs/MJUR/MPHIL/MLF Applicants


LLM2021/22


Hi miki, do you know how long do applicants have after the offers come out to accept it?


@Miki, what is that button thing everyone in the old thread was talking about? Is that a good or bad sign when the button disappears? :D


I think you mean that "provide additional documents" button (or something like that) and I think the issue was that for some people this button disappeared before they were given the offer (I think LSE does something similar: your trancript drops if you are successful and it stays in place when you get a PFO). I can't remember if my button had disappeared before I got the offers, but I can tell you that this button is still there now (lol). I know making predictions is super tempting, but, for the sake of your own sanity, I think it's better to wait until mid-March patiently.


I think every course is different. For the BCL, I had until the end of April to accept (a little over a month from the time I received my offer). I also had academic conditions I had to meet by the end of August. 

I think a key distinction is that you don't need to pay a deposit for the BCL (I believe some of the other courses require you to pay, including the MLF). This does mean that you will be able to accept your offer but renege later (IF NECESSARY) without the fear of losing your deposit.

I think no, but this is just a document which does not oblige you to do anything. You can say in the early form that you will fund your studies from savings and then, when the time comes, add the scholarships. In any event, I think it would be good to contact the college and ask about this issue: some colleges tend to be more lenient than others.



Do you know if its possible to delay providing the statement for financial means? Ill be awaiting responses from various scholarships but I doubt they will revert before June

I think I was given 14 days to accept the offer and pay the deposit. There was another (one month from the date of the offer) deadline to provide the most recent transcript (because I had a condition attached). Then comes the college offer, which you also have to accept (if you reject the college's offer, your course offer will be withdrawn) and provide proof that you will be able to fund your studies (if you don't they will withdraw the offer, which sucks).

hey everyone! I am new to this discussion board and just wanted to drop a quick message of good luck to everyone nervously counting down the days until the BCL application results are released in March. 

I'm curious about the interests of everyone applying to this course, what area of law are you all most interested in pursuing either during your BCL or after? Was this something you wrote about in your statement of reasons or demonstrated in your choice of essay? For me my current interests are in human rights and medical law, hoping to pursue a practice in clinical negligence after my postgrad, but my written essay concerned jurisprudence.

Hi Miki, I was wondering how does it come that I cannot see someone who fits into your profile in the profile book of current BCL/MJur students at Oxford? There is no one in the profile book who studied at the University of Aberdeen.

Because he attended the MSc Taxation at Oxford, your message might come across as you were implying something, but I’m sure you didn’t mean to. Thanks Mikki for your help and your positivity btw ;)

Oh sure, my tunnel vision is confined to the BCL and MJur. Not trying to imply anything tough - that is why I just asked.

I quit checking graduate self service - think there is no point in doing that, but I can remember some people saying something about a magic button (dis)appearing which would allegedly indicate the outcome of the assessment.

I have been reliably informed that the application outcome can be gleaned from observing lunar movements and astrological portents ...

Yeah apart from that weird button thing, you'll app status on the portal will not change, regardless of the outcome. You'll sadly have to wait for the email

What is this button that people speak of? I have the supporting documents button and through that I can add additional documents. Is that button supposed to disappear if an offer is expected?

Don't think so. There have been several cases where the button disappeared but the person still got rejected. might only mean that a decision has been made.

Hello everyone!
My professor just informed me that she put the wrong date to the reference letter that she uploaded to the system. She wrote January 15, 2021, instead of January 15, 2022. Do you think this is will have a negative impact for my Mjur application? Any recommendations?

It may be noted as an error and it may not even be noticed at all at all. Does Oxford have a timeframe for letters?  

I actually think it is inconsequential because unlike platforms like LSAC where a recommender’s writing can be assessed a year later, Oxford sends a unique link to a referee during each application season so what matters is that the professor uploaded the letter this year. Even if it is a letter that was written last year, the act of up loading it this year is like a restatement of facts at the date of submission. No issues seen from my end.

Last year MLF application results were released on March 12th, so hopefully we'll see some movement around then.
