Does the college really matter? I was told that it didn't really for a graduate course at Oxford, so I picked the one that seemed to have scholarships that I had a shot at !

No, it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things; I mean some colleges have some more money than others, and you might end up hanging out with folks from your college just by familiarity, but your faculty is the key connector as a graduate student.

I am in the same situation. Accepted in the DPhil, but my programme (which is at the Oxford Internet Institute) had a later gathered field. So, I am going to Kellogg College, but accomodation is not available at this time.

Hello again

Can any of you - prospective, current or past students - recommend or advise on the BCL/MJur Constitutional Theory course? If so, do students regularly take it in conjunction with the other theoretical courses (i.e. Juris and Political Theory, Philos Foundation of Common Law, etc). Is any combination advisable?

Any and all views welcome.

Does anyone know the correct starting date for BCL studies? Late September or 8 October? Good enough to go on 3 Oct (when college opens)?

I am at St Catz by the way...

@Dreamer: I suppose that even though formal teaching for the BCL/MJur won't start until week one of Michaelmas your college is probably going to ask you to come into residence at least a week before that date to attend their various induction events; my college (Merton), for example, expects me to arrive on September 26th/27th, but the situation might obviously be different at St. Catherine's. (I think it is also quite likely that there will be various introductory lectures etc. at faculty level before the start of 'full' term.)

No one else interested in renting something together? There are already 2 of us here who were not offered accommodation in a college. University accommodation has also a long waiting list and I was told it will be almost impossible to get a place. If anyone else is interested in private housing, please contact me or paedrarmy. The best places I have seen are usually for at least 3 tenants.

hi thanks for your answer jw !
There's something I'm really confused about - many of the scholarship applications require the submission of a study plan" for taught courses.
I would have thought that a study plan would be something that a research student would prepare considering that most of the courses for the BCL ( which I have been admitted to) have already been structured by faculty .
Also considering that we haven't chosen courses yet and aren't guarenteed of getting the ones we want , how does this work?
Is this "study plan" like a statement of purpose which includes broad areas of study ? How long should it be ? What should it include? ANY help on this would be greatly appreciated . Thanks so much .

By the way, I sometimes wonder how all of us would recognise each other once we reach Oxford. We would probably be inquiring who is jw? who is student 02? We all know each other virtually and through codenames:))

Incidentally, the updated course list for 2006-07 has done with two credit modules. The International Economic Law Module for example is for three credits (last year it was 2). The course description interestingly begins by stating that this two credit module...
Guess the content of the course description has not been updated yet.
