Congrat to those who got the offer! :)

Anyone looking for the accomodation?
Any suggestion where to live?


I am looking for accomodation... I've already applied to UCL ones (twin room, 120 pw max), but I'm also trying some websites, such as: http://www.spareroom.co.uk/ and http://www.gumtree.com/london ....

I prefer sharing with you, folks (UCL LLM)!

There are some nice flats to rent, and I don't have much knowledge which areas are the top ones for us. This website is cool also to compare prices in each region: http://www.rentonomy.com/maps/discover !


Thank you so much for the website!
I dont know the area there as well :(
Some of my friends recommended me to stay at unite accomodation but I think it's too pricey :(

I can't wait any longer haha ! Checking the future-uni website like every hour to see how likely I am to get in :)

My references were submitted on the 10/02/14 and its status is still "Application complete". I called the admissions office and it said that my application was currently with the academic office being considered. I'm so nervous!

It actually shouldn't be a problem anymore for LLM, I just saw the website had been discontinued ;)

I just read a post in a separate thread that said UCL needs a deposit if you accept an offer. Is that true? It might create problems since i want to accept the offer but want to wait till june to take a final decision so that i can choose the college/university which offers me financial support.

It's true, it does require a deposit

I did not have to pay any deposit when I accepted my conditional offer. I accepted back in November so I'm pretty sure they would have asked for one by now if they were going to :)

Perhaps you were thinking of KCL? They ask for a deposit of £500 upon acceptance.

thanks Mark, I was about to post this...I just checked my offer letters and you are right, UCL does not request for a deposit, whilst King's does, apologies!

Hey guys,
Has the deadline to apply for UCL Accommodation now passed?
And I'd like to know the source that I should depend on to estimate my living costs in London while I'm studying. I was asked to submit the sum to my sponsor.
UCL provides an estimate of approx. £9,310 per year based on an estimate of £245 per week for a 38-week academic year (see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/fees-funding/living-costs).
Do you guys think it is fairly sufficient? I plan to seek for private sector accommodation.

It really depends on the individual, london is quite expensive ao it depends on your way of living. . Some people could be fine with 150 per week (excluding accomodation) while some may need way more

I'm living in London at the moment, although I'm in a much different situation to many of you as I'm working full time (doing my law degree part time).

I can't really speak as to 'student accommodation' because I have my own flat and will simply stay in it if I end up at UCL. But if one excludes accommodation, I would think that £150 per week is enough. You won't pay any council tax. Zone 2 Oyster Card with a student discount is about £80 per month. Let's say £70 per month for other bills including mobile phone, electricity, hot water, etc. £50 per week for food, £20 per week for other necessaries. Say £20 per week for going out, buying new clothes as needed, etc. That's £90 per week plus fixed costs of £150 per month, so about £130 per week in total. I think even £100-£110 per week excluding accommodation would be 'liveable', although perhaps a little depressing.

I just applied for UCL student accommodation. I guess there's no harm in applying. It's a little annoying that you can't put your preference down for the exact student residence that you want to live in. Apparently, looking at the FAQ, the graduate students are grouped together. I hope that's the case! Would love to share with other LLM students and get to know each other. I'm a bit hesitant about sharing with undergrads, some of which are first year (18 year olds)...

On another note, I hate having middle names! My online accommodation application just uses my first and last name, but in my application and official offer letter my middle names are used too. I assume for CAS purposes, they'll include my middle names too and the name that I provided as the name on my passport? They'll ask us to check the visa details too presumably?

Hi,

I have an offer from UCL and QMUL and have almost decided against applying for financial aid at QMUL (because I doubt I'll be accepting the offer with a UCL offer at hand).

I just wanted to be doubly sure that Law and Economics at UCL would be better than at QMUL. Please help.

Hi everyone,
I have received offers from QMUL, LSE, KCL & UCL. M not very keen about LSE bcause of the modules offered there. I have decided on UCL..however I've heard from some ppl that the law dept at KCL is better. But acc to all the rankings UCL is better. Can anyone tell me whether I should opt for KCL or UCL?
