Oxford 2023-2024 BCL/MSCs/MJUR/MPHIL/MLF Applicants

Didn't see one of these threads for this year's applicants so I thought I'd make one.

I'm applying for the BCL, ideally Magdalen College - how is everyone getting on with applications for this year?

Hey, thanks for this! Just wondering - in your personal statement, did you focus more on the university itself or on the teaching and courses? My current draft is pretty much exclusively about the courses so wondering if that might be a bit imbalanced.

I focused on both myself and the course; it is important to link yourself with the course/teaching. For example, you decided to apply for the BCL because you think the unique tutorial system will allow to you to excel etc, this kind of stuff. Try to find what you like about the course and how you can benefit from that or why you think the course is great; the PS is essentially a cover letter. 



Send me your email and I will send my PSs through
