LLM UK Application Deadlines 2020

 

The postgraduate application and admissions process can take several weeks to complete so give yourself plenty of time, particularly if you are an international student. Some institutions have different deadlines for international (non EU) students, to give them more time to process their visas. Many institutions have rolling admissions throughout the year and some have very specific deadlines. Some courses, particularly popular ones, may become fully booked earlier than anticipated and deadlines brought forward so make sure you check regularly.

Some accept applications twice a year and have two specific deadlines – this is because they have two start dates per year (usually in January and September), so check out which deadline you can meet.

Where deadlines are not specified, the institutions accept applications at any time as long as they are submitted early enough before the course start date.

Here are a few handy tips:

Apply as early as possible: courses may be full and offers made long before the specified deadline.

Enclose all required supporting documents: applying piecemeal is not helpful and some institutions will not consider your application if it is incomplete, even if it is submitted on time. You will probably need to include a personal statement and a reference letter at the very least.

Be sure what type of LLM program you want: when it comes to deadlines some institutions make a distinction between Taught and Research LLMs, so be sure whether the deadline is applicable to your chosen program

Contact the school: Don’t hesitate to contact the institution by phone or email. If you are an excellent candidate with an impressive CV they may be able to accommodate you even if you have missed the deadline or you may be lucky to find that there are still places available on the course.
