Oxford Written Work

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Applying to Oxford for Law with German Law, 2017 entry. Oxford website states that written work is not required for Law course.

    I gained top marks in A2 Lit, Lang and History coursework, plus I wrote several articles for the school newspaper last year. I feel that my written work would help me stand out, and so am disappointed that it is not deemed necessary for Law course.

    Nonetheless, I have put all of my coursework essays and newspaper articles together into a neat portfolio, which I would like to submit to the Oxford college to which I apply.

    Does anybody know whether sending extra work is possible? Would admissions tutors be willing to look at it or would they consider it an unfair breach of standard procedure? Surely I have nothing to lose - if they don't have a look at my work, they'll at least recognise me as someone who is proactive and hard working when they come to reviewing my official UCAS application?
