UCL 2018/19


Hello everyone.. I know it's still early but wanted to start a thread for those who have firmly decided to attend UCL. It would be great to know each other before the term begins and discuss accommodation options!

No I am still looking for options online. It's a little confusing. What about you? Have you looked into it yet? Can we discuss this on another forum? FB/Whatsapp?

Hi, guys! I got accepted too. I really hope I will be able to join you in September. I am still struggling with tuition fee payment. Do you know when we can expect a decision on Bentham Scholarship? Have you applied for any other scholarships?

Congratulations! What's your specialization?
UCL has not updated their website. Have gone through conversations on scholarship by previous applicants on this forum.. there is no timeline as such and sometimes recipients come to know after the term has started.. the best way to know would be to write to the admissions office! Fingers crossed!

Do any of you have information about the modules for the 2018/2019 period? I am looking at the link below but according to UCL's website these are still to be confirmed...

Thanks in advance.

I wanted to know whether it is possible to have a dual specialized, In order words, the minimum requirement for a specialising degree is 60 credits, However what happens if someone has 60 credits in l.P. and in Commercial Law? is it possible to request both titles to be included?

It may be difficult, as the essay is part of the reason you're given a specialist LLM, I think. As there's only one essay, you can only specialise in one area. Or at least that's how I see it.

Thanks for your response. However based on their website, it states that specialization is based on meeting the minimum amount of credits (60) associated with the specialized degree and modules. Eg a specialization in Competition Law would mean doing 60 credits of modules listed under the degree: Competition Law (eu and uk - 30 credits), US anti trust comparison (30 credits), Economics related law (15 credits)

In that scenario, I waned to know if you could have 2 specialization on you degree as a lot of the specialized LLM are interlinked: (competition law and economic law), (corporate law and commercial law) (commercial and disputes res) a lot of these have the same modules, hence you can qualify for the 60 credits minimum for both .

I am not sure but it should be only one specialism (although some universities allow students to have two, but on those cases they require two essays). You should call or email UCL and ask them directly, being this the best way to find out the answer to your question.

Best regards

Are you going to study another LLM in the US after you finish your first one in London? wow, good for you! =)

I do not know how many years of experience you have, but I would suggest you to work at least for a couple of years ater you finish your first LLM as it is way better when you have previous experience on certain areas.

Word of advice: Do not rely on the scholarship as a source of your funding. The best way to approach it is by assuming that you will not get it, and if you end up being the recipient then that would happen by luck.

Probability wise, the odds are not in anyone's favor. There are only 10 scholarships and people who applied before he November dates are eligible.
