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


caighdean

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

That makes sense - and thank you, I'll DM you now!

Hi! I'm applying to the MJur, since I come from a civil law country. I'm still working on my personal statement and talking to teachers regarding letters of recomendations.

Hi, thank you! Would you have any insight into writing the research proposal for the DPhil/MPhil in law? For example, given the maximum word count is only 600, how much detail do you think applicants should go into when explaining their motivation for applying?

Hi, the research proposal should detail your research proposal, not your motivation for applying (that's what the personal statement is for). In the research proposal, try to explain why you want to undertake the research, what it will entail (like even a plan), mantion the topic, explain how your research will contribute to the science etc.

Hi, I'm (still) a current Oxford student, so feel free to ask questions about the process :) 
Hello! Are you a BCL student? If so, or for anyone else, I'm most nervous about my essay. I got 80 in the essay - coursework for medical ethics. It's not got much hard law - largely just bioethics discussions. I also just don't know if it's 'good' enough.

Secondly, how important are references?:|)

Hi

No, I didn't do the BCL but the process is exactly the same for all the courses. I think an essay analysing case law/statutory law would be better than a purely conceptual essay, but if it's good, then it is good! The topic of the essay should not matter too much. I submitted essays not related with my courses at all and got two offers.

Re references, these are very important. Make sure you are able to get references from people who know your work well, not just any "prestigious" professor, the head of school, your personal tutor etc. Try to find people who: marked/supervised your dissertation, marked more than one (gppd) essay that you wrote, taught you on more than one course and know who you are. As you can see, the focus should be on people who know your work and know who you are well, i.e. the people who would be able to write a meaningful reference for you, and not just a generic one, such as "he is a good student" etc.

Hey miki,

From the previous thread I saw that you selected Christ Church as your college. I was interested in Christ Church as well but I am worried about its postgraduate accommodation. It seems very sparse. Having stayed at CC accommodation yourself, could you speak to its quality and features (shared bathrooms, space, etc.)

Hi, I didn't stay at Chch acco, I stayed at Jesus (you can apply to other Colleges for rooms, subject to availability). I know that ChCh has a huge annex near ChCh sports pitches and  the standard there is generally ok (that's where most grads tend to stay at). It is located in Cowley, like 15 mins on foot from the college.

Thanks for clarifying this 1f642! I had no idea about being able to apply to other college rooms.

Hey - I applied for the Oxford BCL last month, with Lincoln as my first choice! Good luck all.

Hi, does anyone know if it would count against you to apply for two courses at Oxford with separate proposals (e.g. making one law MPhil application and one socio-legal studies MPhil application)?

No it would not count against you; you can apply for all the courses if you want to.

I’m studying at a good RG law school in London and I’m averaging near 67. Not sure if it even makes sense to apply to the MLF, any opinions?

Hey friend,

I cannot speak authoritatively of course. I found the FOI's response to this question on whatdotheyknow which you will find useful.

The original inquirer asked:

"I would like to know how many people that were accepted on the master of law and finance course 2020 - 2021 and 2022-2023 had a 2.1 degree?"
The FOI admin at Oxford responded with the following:










"Dear Ms [x],
I write in reply to your email requesting the information
detailed above.
Our records distinguish between ‘offers’ and ‘acceptances’. Offers comprise all conditional or unconditional offers made by academic departments or faculties; acceptances represent the number of candidates who returned a signed University contract indicating their acceptance of a place on a graduate programme. There are a number of reasons why an offer may not become an acceptance, including a failure to satisfy conditions, insufficient funds or a change of mind on the part of the applicant. **From 2020 up to the most recent application cycle for
which data is available, there have been 6 offers made to applicants with 2.1 degrees for the Master of Law and Finance course. From 2020/21 up to 2021/22, there have been no acceptances.**Please note that as the current application cycle for 2022/23 has yet to formally conclude, we are  unable to confirm final acceptances for this year."
I hope this clarifies things. I personally think it's worth
the shot, especially if you have work experience which apparently can positively impact your application for the MLF. I imagine, however, that the lack of acceptances has something to do with securing sufficient funding.

Estoppel

I’m studying at a good RG law school in London and I’m averaging near 67. Not sure if it even makes sense to apply to the MLF, any opinions?


Hey friend,
I cannot of course speak authoritatively, but this is what I have found on whatdotheyknow.
The original poster asked the FOI office at Oxford:
"I would like to know how many people that were accepted on the master of law and finance course 2020 - 2021 and 2022-2023 had a 2.1 degree?"
The FOI office responded with the following:
"Dear Ms [x],
I write in reply to your email requesting the information
detailed above.
Our records distinguish between ‘offers’ and ‘acceptances’. Offers comprise all conditional or unconditional offers made by academic departments or faculties; acceptances represent the number of candidates who returned a signed University contract indicating their acceptance of a place on a graduate programme. There are a number of reasons why an offer may not become an acceptance, including a failure to satisfy conditions, insufficient funds or a change of mind on the part of the applicant. **From 2020 up to the most recent application cycle for which data is available, there have been 6 offers made to applicants with 2.1 degrees for the Master of Law and Finance course. From 2020/21 up to 2021/22, there have been no acceptances.**Please note that as the current application cycle for 2022/23 has yet to formally conclude, we are  unable to confirm final acceptances for this year.
I hope this clarifies things. I personally think it's worth the shot, especially if you have work experience which apparently can positively impact your application for the MLF. I imagine, however, that the lack of acceptances has something to do with securing sufficient funding.
