Hey guys

I've been regularly following this board which has been very helpful and kept me at ease during all the waiting times.

I also received an email from Paul Burns this morning making the offer 'official'.

I'm from Australia and wanted to know if there are any other Australians out there who will be going to Oxford to study for the BCL (or anything else for that matter).


The_Nagle, I also have been keenly following this board, without making any sort of contribution. In respnse to your query, I'm an Australian (Melbourne based) who has received offers for Oxford, Cambridge & LSE. I know of one other Australan in this position. I'm yet to make any decision about where to go. I suspect this will be largely dictated by funding. If I can't secure any financial assistance, I might not go at all, as the cost of studying is awfully expensive for me.

Hi, I got a conditional offer from Oxford with IELTS requirement of 7.5 with each component at least 7. But till now I reached the total score of 7.5, with 8 in listening, 9 in reading, 7 in speaking and 6 in writing. I wonder if there is any possibility to agrue with them for language exemption, or if it is possible to be replaced of language course..
Thanks..

I'd recomend you take the IELTS again, or the TOEFL, which seems easier to me. All you have to do is improve your written score, and the TOEFL written part is friendlier that the IELTS. If the second time your score is closer to 7 (or the TOEFL equivalent) but not there yet, you can ask them to rescore the written part, which might help you increase the score. This seems easier than obtaining a language exemption.

Congrats to all those that got in to where they wanted to go.
I'm still a little perplexed by the system. I got accepted to Boston U, rejected by LSE, accepted by UCL, rejected by Oxford and accepted by Cambridge!!

so am not sure what to make of this crazy system but I wish you all well in the future and look forward to meeting some of you in due course.

good luck.

Well the only weird thing about it is that you were rejected in LSE and accepted in Cambridge. The rest is rather normal. UCL and BU are more easy to get into than LSE and Oxbridge, Oxford is more difficult than Cambridge.

Mine's updated too. I can't remember when I last checked it but it would have been only a couple of days ago.

(Meaning that it must have changed at some point in the last couple of days)

Does anyone know whether Cambridge will withdraw your place if you do not recieve the 1st that they set as a condition? For example if you get a mid 2:1 will you still be able to go?

Hey all,

Anyone on the board hear from Oxford re: scholarships? It looks like all the Clarendon's have been given out (see the note below). I'd imagine that the law faculty scholarships aren't too far away either.

07/04/09: CLARENDON SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE. All Clarendon Fund & ORS scholarships for entry in 2009/10 have now been made. If you have not received a funding offer from the University, you should assume that your application for this scholarship has not been successful.
