The 2012 Cambridge Thread


dkda
the demand for caution money is only for a few colleges It has nothing to do with ur gtng unconditional offer. as soon as ur application is accepted at the college, even if u hold a conditional offer they ask u for the caution money.

Re: caution money: my college does not require it. But, if you do not take up your place, you'll be liable to pay a 400 £ fee...

Hey guys, does anyone know how long it takes for the University to issue and dispatch the CAS letter after the admission has been confirmed?

Also, in case of rejection of scholarship by the Cambridge Trust, does the Trust send individual e-mails or shall I presume that no e-mail means no scholarship!

I have a feeling that Cambridge is quite "quiet" towards enquiry emails...
hopefully it is just because of time zone issues...

congrats guys, i was reading more about this program and am very interested.

i was wondering though, if you apply to the MCL does that preclude you from applying to cambridge for a regular LLM as well (in case you dont get into the MCL)....

also, did all of you have top ten grades? or is some leeway and flexibility there - i.e top 15, i assume competition will be very intense... and work experience counts.

thks

You can apply for both MCL and LLM at the same time, but you may have to (I suppose and please correct me if I am wrong) face a situation where you have to accept or decline offer from one of the programmes before you know the outcome of your application for the other programme.

I expect there to be flexibility in terms of academic standard, though they usually say that you have to be in top 10% of your class. Nonetheless, there are universities which do not rank students by top N% (including mine).

Hi, I hope that someone here can help me as I cannot find any usefull information on my scenario. Maybe someone has been in a similar situation? I am a South African studying LLB through the University of South Africa aka UNISA (correspondence). I am in my 3rd year but would like to continue my studies in the UK and ultimately practice there. Can I transfer to another University in the UK and just carry on with my degree without losing any credits already obtained? Or even carry on through Unisa as they do have an examination centre in the UK? What is the whole procedure for becoming a lawyer/solicitor in the UK ? Or would it be better to complete my degree in South Africa and then just do the training programme in the UK? Is there any additional programmes/tests, etc that a person from another country has to sit to qualify to practice/study in the UK? Hope someone can give me some sound advice as I have tried all other options - Universities in the UK, SA, institutions, etc but nobody seems to be able to give proper advice.



Thanks in advance

Hi guys,

my admission to the Uni has just been confirmed.

Could you tell me what happens next? So far I have only received a letter from my college. I'm getting a bit concerned...

You may have come to a wrong forum at the first place... LL.M. is quite different from a degree for qualifying as a lawyer...

Nonetheless, I am not from UK but from what I have heard from my UK friends, it is not easy to have programme transfer as such. If you want to have credit transfer, you must consult the institution you have in mind as to whether they recognise your courses; even if the institution recognises, you must also ensure that the Law Society also recognises it.

Alternatively, you can just complete your current degree and do top-up courses in UK. The Law Society in fact provides quite extensive details: [http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/careersinlaw/becomingasolicitor/qualifying.page#lawdegree]. It appears that your University is not within the list of institutions providing qualifying law degrees. You may therefore have to go through the "Qualifying without a law degree" route and take the CPE/GDL.

Hey Flavio,

Once CAMSIS confirms your offer, you will have the certificate to confirm offer to print. If you are from a country needing VISA, they will be sending you via email your unique CAS number which you will need to apply for a TIER 4 visa. You will also need a confirmation from the college. I received mine through email, this may be different to your college. So once you have both University confirmation and College confirmation, along with the VISA, you are all set. Of course, there is the accomodation and travelling arrangements etc... Can i suggest you join the FB group- just search for "Cambridge LL.M. Class of 2012/2013". There is constant and active discussions there. i believe almost half of the class are there already!

May I ask how long does it take for the email containing the CAS no. to arrive? Thanks!

Mine took around a week after my offer was confirmed on Camsis. I do suggest joining the facebook group as most of us are discussing matters like college, accommodation, travelling dates, visa applications etc there and it's a great source of help!
