Hey, I'm new here and would like to have a second opinion on this:

I'm thinking of applying to the UK law schools next year. I've considered applying to Oxbridge but I heard the competition there is fierce. So in case I'm not accepted, can I apply to Oxbridge again for the second undergrad year? I'm not familiar with the British educational system but I know that transfers are available in American universities, even in Harvard U and MIT. So I was wondering if Oxbridge has this kind of system and the procedures of transferring? Or is it just completely impossible to transfer to Oxbridge?

And what about other law schools, such as London Universities?
Do they accept transfers?

Your help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Ben

Hi there Ben I am sure you would get into a University in the UK if you wanted. The only down fall is that you wouold not be able to transfer to the second year as for a qualifying law degree you need to do all three years. You could certainly ask Universities in the Uk

Id recommend

Oxford
Cambridge
Warwick
Birmingham
Nottingham
Leicester
and Manchester

any other questions
dont hesitate to ask

Just a quick question, what if you're in your 1st undergraduate year for law, say at Durham, and would like to transfer to Oxbridge for your 2nd year? Is that still impossible?

You could ask, but universities like to offer places to people whom have never been to offer its worth asking, I have a HND IN law technically I could go into the second year of a law degree I asked every where but they would not allow me Durham is an excellent University,as long as your at a Elite University such as Durhamn, warwick, Birmingahm, oxford, cambridge etc your doing excellent anything else you wana know?
