Applications for September 2013 entry
The LLM Programme will close for applications at 23.59 GMT on 1 June 2013. Any application received after this deadline will not be considered and will receive an email confirming this.
However, due to the introduction of new LLM Specialisms for 2013 in International Shipping Law and Energy and Natural Resources Law, both of these specialisms will remain open for applications until 1 August 2013. Please apply via the specialism link and select which specialism you are applying for on the form itself. Candidates should also include a short personal statement to confirm which of the two specialisms they are applying for. Students who apply for these two specialisms under this extended opening period will have a condition applied to their offer, restricting their choice of modules to their selected specialist area.
Please note, we do not have a January start for the main LLM programme.
Online application is the preferred method of application. If you are unable to access the online form or have any difficulty using the online form, please contact the Admissions team by email on email@example.com.
In order to apply, you must supply:
- a transcript of your law degree marks
- any other supporting qualifications
- one reference letter
- proof of English language proficiency (you can apply first and submit your language score later).
We do not interview prospective students, so these documents will form the basis of any decision made. If you have not yet completed your first degree you should send in your marks achieved so far.
On the application form you will be applying for entry to the general LLM programme. All individual module and specialisation choices will be finalised after enrolment and induction. You will have a two-week induction and a full week of teaching before making your selection. This will enable you to make an informed final choice.
How to Apply
- You will need to submit a completed on-line application form, transcripts of your law degree or any other relevant qualification, and one reference (preferably academic).
- You should submit a complete application where possible.
- If you are waiting for documentation such as references or transcripts to arrive, then please continue to wait for these, and then proceed to the online application once you have all the required documentation.
Exceptions to this may include where, for confidentiality reasons, a referee wishes to send their reference to us directly; where a student has upcoming funding deadlines; or where evidence of English Language proficiency has not yet been obtained. Language test results can be submitted later in the process (see FAQ "what are the English language requirements for the LLM").
- Incomplete applications may be rejected. If you have not yet completed your degree, then a transcript of marks achieved so far is required and is acceptable. You do not need to have finished your first degree before applying, as conditional offers can then be made pending your final marks.
- Please ensure that you read the guidance notes which accompany the on-line application as they will guide you through each section of the process.
