Hey mahmut68.....As far as central london is concerned, you can apply in any one of the four University of London colleges, i.e. LSE, UCL, SOAS, KCL. However you can also apply in QMUL, but its not located in central london. All these five colleges/schools of London University have great reputation, in their own capacity based on your area of interest.
Cheers

Virtually all postgraduate activity is at the CCLS, not the law school (which concentrates on LLB studies and the odd LLM that doesn't fall under commercial law).

A few of friends did the QM LLM and only ever visited Mile End once or twice.

Hello Mahmut,

regardless of whether QMUL is in central London or not, it may be the only university which will accept you. This is because of your IELTS results. The other top-unis in London have higher language requirements:


http://www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/law/prospective/grad/llm/entry/english

http://www2.lse.ac.uk/graduateProspectus2010/entryRequirements/Home.aspx

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/laws/prospective/llm/index.shtml?entry

http://www.soas.ac.uk/admissions/international/englishrequirements/

I am not sure if they are very strict on the language requirements, but given that the recruitment is very competitive I would not expect any concessions (especially in this economy more people decide to come back to the university).

Best of luck,
Marcvs

That is true there are the IELTS requirements, but I think it should not stop you from applying to the aforementioned as long as you write in your personal statement that you will do the IELTS again to get a better score.

All the schools do conditional offers which can only be an IELTS result. However, then you have to consider your law school grades and whether you stand a chance to get in.

Thank you very much to all for contributions. Quin Mary, too, requires more grades in IELTS than I got. What do you think of UEL?

I wouldn't go there if I were you... I'd try the IELTS once more. With a little effort I'm sure you can get at least a 7.0 with 7.0 in all subjects. And QM do accept students with 6.5, the only setback would be undergoing a pre-season English course.

Leicester low school is ranked better than QMUL which requires more grade in english than Leciester which accepts 6.5, which is my grade. What do you think of this situation. What do you know about accomodation in Leicester.

Thank you.

Depending on the rank I think QM is higher up, isn't it? Anyhow, once again I advise you to try the IELTS one more time, althogh Leicester is way better than UEL. And sorry but I haven't got anything on accommodation in Leicester.

Thank you very much beicon. I have had IELTS twice so far. The problem is that I could not get more than 6.5 in writing. But I realised in the last exam that my writing consisted of 230 words less than what is required. What do you think of the cost of this to me as a score of writing?

Twenty words below the minimum might have cost you a few points indeed, but I dont think it'd push you to a 6.5. Did you stick to the graphic in task 1? You know you cant give your personal opinion on anything in task 1, dont you? That sure would make you loose lots of points. And, about the 250-word task 2, you ought to show them your opinion, basically structured as follows: 1st paragraph you rephrase what they ask of you; 2nd paragraph you show one side of the situation; 3rd paragraph you show the other side; 4th paragraph you show your opinion and conclude. That usually works for all IELTS exams. Do you have one of those books with previous exams? Theyre rather useful for practising. You neednt use a lot of impacting words, but youve got to include at least two or three words not commonly know by non-native English speakers to show them you master the language. I think the exam is more like knowing what they usually want from students than actually mastering the English language. Ive only taken the exam once, but Id practiced a lot before that and I may be able to give you a hint or two. Just PM me or reply to this post and well talk.
