    I've never been on it myself but people in my class have - its basically a weekend of seminars on a set topic, where you all chat about it and some experts give their opinions... I'm sure there's some element of socialising too.

    I know this came really late but. . .I just recently accepted my Birkbeck MA offer and I have no idea where I'm going to be living either! Apparently it's too late to apply to the intercollegiate dorms. . .anyone care to dish on the advice? I'd really appreciate it!
    What will you be doing for your MA?
    Unfortunately I can't dish in any advice; sorry =/ Still searching myself, it's making me nervous so close before term starts :woo:

    Are you going to go on the trip? I just spoke to Sue and she said there are still places so i think i am going to go, chance to meet new people and the seminars should be interesting.

    Hi everyone,

    I graduated from Birkbeck in June 2009, with a Certificate of HE in Legal Methods. I am now nearing the end of my first year as a law student at Oxford University.

    Just thought I will say hi and offer my advice and support to people who might visit this thread.
    Hiya, i have a question did you need to take the LNAT test

    To be honest, I don't really feel the need to convince you that I am in fact studying at Oxford :yep: . Indeed, to pretend to study at Oxford would require one to be a rather sad person....

    However, if my entry qualifications surprise you, check this page http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...nt_offers.html - scroll down to Birkbeck college and you will there was an offer made by Oxford in 2009 for law, conditional on a distinction in the Legal Methods course.

    As for more information about Birkbeck, I cannot really tell you much unless you ask specific questions... :confused:
    Hey, i think i sent you a message already.. oh well il send it again.. did u need to do the LNAT to get into OXFORD LLB

    Congratulations Eve on getting into Oxford, what a feat.

    I'm thinking of applying to Lucy Cavendish college, Cambridge (it's one of their mature student colleges), I went to one of their open days in June and was very impressed, it will all depend on how the Birkbeck course goes (they have a late application round - March 2011 - for mature student which buys me some time).

    Lurking on this thread as I'm thinking of going to Birkbeck next year after I've graduated (from the OU). I've got my eye on the Social and Political Theory MSc/MRes. Which MA are you doing schlockandroll?
    Sorry for the late response! I just got my offer for the MA in Creative Writing about two weeks ago and it's been hectic ever since (I'm an international student)! So my advice is - APPLY EARLY! I sent in my form in July and was trapped in the summer hols backlog.

    Hello. I will be starting - with the support of Birkbeck Student Union - a Public Speaking Society. It would be a great of improving our ability to speak in front of an audience, and it will prove particularly useful for those of us that wish to remain in academia as lecturers or for those that wish to enter a profession where it may be mandatory or useful. Or if you just enjoy it! Requirements thus far are that I shall need two other people to serve as vice-president and treasurer (or whatever titles there are available). The students union officer and I have a bunch of great ideas for the society, including group presentations to ease us into the process, games, and if possible, bring in guest speakers to help us with some tips and techniques.

    If this is something you may be interested in, then send me an e-mail at [email protected].

    Thank you.

    That's brilliant! I remember enquiring to Lucy Cavendish when I was deciding between making an application to Oxford or Cambridge. Best of luck with your course.
