UCL LLM 2021/2022 - Advice Needed


B19E97

Hi Guys,



I wonder if anyone can help me? I want to apply for the LLM at UCL for the upcoming intake 2021/2022. While I received a 65% overall for my undergraduate degree in law, it was from a university ranked just under the top 70 in the UK. As well as this, I received 2.2s in my first and second year of university, only receiving a first overall in my final year, where I did achieve two high firsts (one being my dissertation) and high 2.1s throughout. UCL would be a dream university to undertake a masters in law and I realise that the above is likely to hinder my chances.



I wondered at the likelihood of being accepted on the course or if anyone knows of UK students being accepted on to the masters programme with a similar situation as my own? Also any tips or pointers on the application process, or helpful pages that people know of would be greatly appreciated :)

Edit: Or if anyone has any information on the general LLM course or application process in UCl or maybe other Universities that I would have a better chance of getting into for a masters I would be really grateful.

Hey we are exactly in the same situation right now and I am also looking for the same answer you're looking for. Have you gotten any answers from anywhere else?

No one will be able to tell you if you have a chance or not. I say apply and find out. I’ve heard of people getting into UCL with low 2.1s. I don’t think their admission process is too rigorous as they have an offer rate of ~60%.

Hello everyone. I am a current LLM student at UCL.

I applied in early December 2019 and received my offer in February 2020.

To my understading, I believe UCL mainly look at your overall Undergrad score as a whole. Honestly speaking, I think you all should be fine as long as you are on track to getting a 2:1. Obviously they will look at your writing sample and personal statement as well.

Good luck!

Hi! I have a question regarding the modules taken during the LLM.

UCL’s website shows a minimum of 180 credits to complete the LLM, and each module has 22,5 or 45 credits. Overall it means three modules of 45 credits and the dissertation with another 45 credits.

Do you know if it is possible to take additional modules over the minimum of 180 credits if there is no conflict in the timetable? Have faced this problem during the enrolment of the modules?

I’m applying for Banking and Finance Law in UCL, and am interested in a forth module of 45 credits (even a fifth module of 22.5 credits depending on this possibility). I need more modules for diploma revalidation in the returning to my country.

Tks!
