    Hello people!

    Did you all include the reason(s) why you want to study in the UK in your personal statement?
    yep i did include the reasons. citing the normal stuff like... UK is near the home of ICJ/Hague and its proximity will somehow benefit me, (i said i was interested in international law) in what way i dont really know but yeah, its a hell a lot nearer than Columbia or Duke. hahaha

    Wrote something about common law originating from the UK and a legal system that is widely adopted across the Commonwealth. LKY and a couple of other prominent lawyers all studied law in the UK

    Hello! I'm starting at KCL this Sep, Law LLB started stalking TSR out of boredom at work and am now bored enough to finally post, hahah.

    As to the ongoing discussion, I also wrote a few sentences about hoping to broaden my horizons (well duh, Singapore's tiny) and UK being the origin of many legal systems, including Singapore, so it's the most relevant (compared to Australia or USA) and offers me a very wide range of career options in the future. I don't think this will be helpful to the OP though since it's specific to studying Law in the UK. Haha sorry.

    Hey! I need advices as to which universities are better known for economics and BA. How's manchester, bistol and birmingham? I know lse is good for econs and business related degrees. But it's more popular at master lvl. I'm currently waiting for enlistment in Sept. When can I apply at UCAS?

    What's the difference between Aus degrees and Uk degrees in Econs and BA? Comparing ANU, University of Melbourne, Sydney to Manchester, Bistol, Birmingham?

    Economics? Some schools of my hand, LSE, Warwick, UCL.

    Should you get admitted into a university course beginning in September, do note that you may be granted disruption from NS 1-2 months before your ORD date, since the poly batch of students enlisted earlier will be in time for the sep intake and not yours. Principle of cohort equality is breached here.

    not possible to be granted disruption from ns if attending overseas university. that's only for students going to local university. there's only sept intake for UK?

    Haha, it can't be that many people heading for the UK this year. Most of them are there for the information so they can plan in advance. Hmm people like you? Haha!

    nah the guys had longer than standard-ns hair. so it was pretty easy to spot those who are on deferred entry and those who are actually going this year.

    Hey, I was just wondering when everyone is planning on heading down to the UK. I'm starting @ ucl in September doing law and the school term only starts on the 28th with some vague international student orientation starting on the 23rd (Wednesday). I'm currently booked to leave on the Sunday before the orientation figuring that I can use Monday and Tuesday to sort out getting a bank account, a phone plan and whatever else I need to do. Though besides those 2 things I couldn't really figure out much else I needed to sort out.

    So anyway, when's everyone else going? (sorry if this was discussed before but I only read like the last 2 pages before this and couldn't be bothered to go through the rest)

    I'm going insanely early - 12th sept! KCL has an international orientation on 16-18 Sept, but apparently it doesn't make much difference whether I go for that or not. Anyways, my mother's going up with me so we plan to travel a bit.

    oh cool I guess I'm not really going up that early. And I can use the extra time to shop for more winter clothes or something.
