My status is unchanged in the IPP - the same is for you?


""However, please note that once your application is ready for assessment, any further updates, including the final outcome of your application, will be communicated to you directly by the academic department rather than via Self Service."

This is quoting someone from last years thread, so I guess there's not really a point in checking the IPP.

Ready for assessment in January Deadline :
Your application can be or has been considered by the relevant academic department. The Graduate Admissions website provides further information on the graduate admissions timetable and process.

This is what everyone has right?

In the past years offers were sent in batches starting from Tuesday...
But now seemingly not even the first batch of offers has been sent out yet?

No, I don’t think so. Anyone else feeling that we need to call and get an update? Cause we can’t keep waiting and refreshing our emails everyday.

Hi all, I’ve received nothing on my side. Quite surprising that the BCL application results have taken so long. Most other graduate courses already have theirs.

A call would be best.

I'm currently overseas for a few days. Haven't got international credit. Any volunteers please?

I am surprised that you find it surprising, given how
(1), if you look at the previous years threads, the results for the other graduate courses at Oxford law (such as the MLF) almost always come a week or two earlier;
(2), the first person to post that they had received an offer last year got the offer on March 14th at around 4 PM UK Time, so there are still a couple more hours to go and
(3), quite a few people on here have pointed out that BCL and Harvard LLM decisions often coincide, and HLS hasn't sent out its decisions yet, either.

Even if you call, you'll most likely only get the standard "we will be sending the offers out shortly"-ish reply. We have to be realistic in that nothing we will do (eg calling or mailing) will speed up the process.

I had this with the application for the Cambridge LLM too. It just sucks to wait.

Please call them. At least we will find out for sure if it will start today. And when will it end by.

Just because im curious: Does anyone know if this connection to HLS is really a thing and what the reasoning behind it would be?


At first I thought it was just a wild rumour but then this year Cambridge sent out offers way earlier than it normally does (and more importantly, normally that is around the same time as Oxford sends out offers). So there might be a "tactical" aspect about the timing in which offers are sent out.

Sorry, I just don't see the point in it. Everyone who called Cambridge for the timing of the LLM offers got the same vague "yes yes all in due time my dear" reply. No doubt in my mind Oxford will do the same thing.

The last person who called was told that offers will roll out from Tuesday. I am hoping they will reply with something specific. Anyway, what have we got to lose?
