Possiblity to get an LLM with 2:2 (International applicant) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all, thanks v. much for reading my post!

    I wanna apply for an LLM programme in Taxation in 2019 and I'm thinking if it is possible for me to have such honour. All your comments are highly appreciated.

    Here is my background:

    I was grad. from a university ranked at around 170 in THE, with a 2:2 hon (GPA:3/4) in Acct. & Fin. I have worked for local tax authority as internship, Ernst & Young in individual tax for 3 years and PwC in US tax for 2 years. I have tax knowledge in several jurisdictions with recognition from different countries' professional bodies, including US tax, China tax, UK tax, EU direct tax, and one tax heaven jurisdiction (I had just self-studied US, UK & china tax then passed the exam held by these institutions).

    To my best knowledge, there are only a few uni in the UK offering such programme (Oxford, QueenMary, Exeter & LSE only), so basically I dun have many options.

    I have sent emails to the schools asking if I meet their requirements and come positive replies (Incl. Oxford). But I understand it's just politeness.

    So, may I have your opinions? Harsh words won't hurt me XDD please feel free to comment

    Queen Mary and Exeter will be easy. Don't worry about it.

    Are you sure that your 3.4 is equivalent to a 2:2? I would have thought it would be a mid-high 2:1. If Oxford is saying they would accept that, then take them at their word. If they are willing to accept it, Exeter and Queen Mary will certainly also.
