Hello!
I have an offer from both UPCH (UCL) and IFP(KCL).
But I can't decide which to go though I have to pay deposit within 2 weeks.

Is there anyone who went through those programmes (especially for law)?
Can you give me some advice, please?

I want to progress to LSE after the course.


Thanks in advance!

Hello! I'd say choose KCL. As far as I've seen, after UPCH, even UCL doesn't give offer to any of its own students. I have the same plan as yours, LLB degree at LSE and I have an offer from IFP at KCL, so I think I'll go there!

Hello!
Thank you for the reply!

But I've already paid nearly 14,000 pounds to UPCH, so I can't change where I study anymore!


By the way, I'm happy to hear that you want to progress to LSE Law as well.

Have you decided to go to IFP at KCL?

Yes, now it's certain. I'm just a bit freaked out cause I e-mailed KCL and they said that the number of their IFP students who achieve progressing into KCL law is very very low.

Oh, really!?
Sounds like progress to law from foundation courses is difficult wherever we go. (Maybe that's because law is very popular in the UK.)

One of my friends studying at a foundation course for law in England says entring law is very difficult and thus she is going to major in international relations so she could have an opportunity to study international law.

Anyway we should do our best

Hello!
Did you take A-levels?
If so, I'm afraid you can't enter some foundation courses because UPCH and KCL IFP say they don't consider the students who have taken A-levels.

Maybe you should ask each uni whether you can study there or not.

Well… they say,

"If your school qualification does not entitle you to enter directly onto a UCL undergraduate degree programme you may apply to UPC."(UPCH Frequently Asked Questions)

You can find necessary information here:

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/clie/preparator...h/applications

The advantage of UPC is that you can apply to universities in the UK without taking A-levels. (for students who cannot apply directly)

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (638)

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (805)
