QMUL MSc Law and Finance (insight and opinion wanted)


Hi all,









Just got accepted onto QMUL's MSc in Law and Finance. Does anyone have insights or an opinion regarding this programme? Not sure if I should defer and apply to UCL for an LLM in Corporate Law.









Background:




UK student from T14 Law School (non-russ) with 64% average (with mitigation circumstances)

What are your goals? 



I'm in limbo at the moment - did a one-year placement at an energy firm (finished on September 2020) helping their corporate legal team with corporate/project finance for the UK's newest nuclear power station; hence, I applied to the MSc as opposed to an LLM to gain an insight into the quantitative side of CF/PF. 

I've also regretted not studying economics during undergrad, and I thought this MLF would allow me to branch into finance. In terms of overall goals, I would like to get a TC from a medium-sized firm (an international would be preferable as I speak fluently Chinese and Portuguese, but my grades are inconsistent). I also wouldn't mind exploring CF/M&amp;A graduate schemes at banks or professional service firms, i.e. Big4 or BDO, RSM etc. From reading, you probably can tell I am quite open. 

Thanks for taking the time to reply! 

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the MLF will focus on M&amp;A and Corporate Finance Law (three law and five finance modules)

The msc in law and finance from QMUL is highly regarded as you gain a double diploma in law and finance which is very important if you want to work in corporate/finance law. The is little difference between QMUL and UCL so I advise you to choose QMUL. Also UCL is less known for corporate/finance law, whereas QMUL and CCLS is a leading institution in this field.
