After You Receive a Decision

After You Receive a Decision

My application was unsuccessful, can I know the reason?

If your application is unsuccessful, you will receive some information on why this is, if you would like further information, you can contact the admissions team via the applicant portal.

I have received an offer, what should I do next?

Next steps would be to accept your offer and pay your deposit by the deadline provided to you in your offer letter. Once you have completed this, depending on whether you have received a conditional or unconditional offer, you will be ready to join us in September. If you have received a conditional offer, you must upload your academic results r the applicant portal as soon as you can so you can have your place confirmed for enrolment.

I would like to defer my place; how do I do that?

You can submit a request to defer your place through the applicant portal. However, this must be completed by the deadline.

Do I have to pay a deposit to secure my place?

Postgraduate home and overseas students will need to either pay a deposit or inform us that they will be applying for the UK postgraduate loan through the Applicant Portal, ahead of our deposit deadlines.

My fee status is incorrect, who do I talk to about this?

If you notice your fee status is incorrect, contact the admissions team through the applicant portal and they will correct this.

How do I enrol?

You will receive information regarding enrolment via email ahead of you starting with us.

How much are textbooks?

Each module will have its own recommendations or requirements for books and class materials. Many class materials are provided for reading or printing via our on-line teaching tool (QMPlus Virtual Learning Environment). This will be explained in class and full reading lists will be provided at that time.

As a very rough guide, we estimate that books could cost the student between £100 -£300 in total depending on modules taken. Some modules may produce an in-house compilation of statutory materials which could cost less than a core published textbook.

Where can I find help with my career?

How can I find out what my timetable will look like?

Lectures and seminars take place Monday to Friday, during the day and early evening. Your particular timetable will depend on the courses you decide to take.

What are the contact hours per week for my course?

This depends somewhat on the particular courses you take, but as a general guide you should expect about eight hours of lectures and seminars a week. The LLM programmes involve advanced study, so much of the important work you do is self-directed (working in the library and having informal discussions with other students). Overall, you should plan on lectures, seminars and independent study taking up at least 40 hours a week.

Part time students will study half of their degree each year over a maximum of two years. See the structure tab on each LLM Programme page.

Are lectures recorded?

London taught LLMs and MSC programmes are campus-based and attendance is a requirement.  Most lectures are recorded but this is up to the individual lecturer.
