Their intake is usually 10, 5 for HKU and 5 for UCL. Maybe give or take one depending on the year.

Just discovered this thread. Was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to switch to purely UCL if we get in the dual degree programme? Like, since the first 2 years are at UCL, is it possible to request to stay in UCL for the third year? (Given the situation in HK, it would be nice to have this option in case things go further astray)

Hey, current student on the dual degree here. UCL says it's only if you have 'exceptional circumstances', so I assume they decides this on a case-by-case basis? I've heard a rumour that someone on the dual degree got to switch to the three-year LLB as they secured a training contract in the UK, but other than that I imagine UCL probably won't very lenient with this.

If you applied for the dual degree through HKU and applied for straight UCL LLB through UCAS, you could get offers for both and decide later

Thanks! Btw, how competitive was the dual programme? Is a 45 in ib enough to carry me or would I need to perform exceptionally in the interview?

A 45 is amazing, congratulations! I was predicted 44 and ended up getting a 42 in the end, so I'm sure you're fine. But do try to do well in the interview and make sure you can justify what you've written in the personal statement

Thank you Regarding your friend who managed to stay at UCL, does the training contract have to be from a magic/silver circle firm, or is any training contract enough to secure the third year? Really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions btw

This is just a rumour I heard from seniors so I can't be sure, do take it with a grain of salt. Sorry I can't be more helpful with this issue!

Hi, I also applied this programme from HKU, have you heard anything from HKU yet? I have no update after I have received the HKU LLB offer. Thank you :-)

Hi, no not for this programme. On the website it says interview invitations don't come out until March, so I wouldn't worry about it yet.

Hey there! Applying via HKU, has anyone received the email for making interview arrangements?

Also, I’m most directly this to the current student (Anonymous 3?), how was your interview experience like? Thanks

There was a group interview (3 people) where we were given a prompt/case study to discuss, followed by an individual interview. If I remember correctly, the group part was around 15-20 minutes and the individual one was around 5 minutes.

Do you know if they have invited many candidates for an interview? I know they only accept very few at the end though. :-(
