Oxford BCL with the GDL (City Law School)


sh94x
I know that the BCL usually requires an undergraduate law degree at First Class, but would it be possible to be admitted with a high distinction on the City Law School GDL? The reason I mention City is that it's the most respected GDL, since some of the professors were/are Oxbridge tutors themselves.

If anyone has got onto the BCL with a GDL, how did you find the transition between GDL to BCL? Was there an admissions interview? How did you fund the year?

I would be applying with my GDL grades.

Thank you!

Hi there,

One of my current BCL classmates did the GDL (at City I think). So the Undergrad in law is not a crucial prerequisite.

About the admissions interview: as per the FAQ, no interviews are conducted. Just for the LLB/MPhil/DPhil.

I'd like to ask the same question about the LLM from BPP. I've just started this week, but have just read elsewhere that it's unlikely to be highly enough regarded for a place on the BCL. If this is the case, it might be serious enough for me to drop out of the course and find an LLM at better regarded institution (I have a non-law undergrad degree, a first from a Russell Group Uni). I'm pretty set on doing the BCL if I possibly can.

To be fair, each education at whatever university is better for yourself as long as you learn something out of it.

Talking about how well reputed your place is, unsure how crucial it is if you've got the academic achievements they are looking for. Check the 2018/19 profile book and form an opinion about this. There are people from non-russel group universities as well. Maximise your arsenal and ensure your best golden bullets are in it.

Wow, I read this profile book and it seems that they only admit German students for the Mjur (with some exceptions). That is very funny. No diversity at all.

Although Germans make up almost one-third of the class, I wouldn't say that there's no diversity at all: the 36 participants come from 17 different countries.
