I am considering applying to Oxford for the BA in Jurisprudence with Senior Status is this as competitive as under graduate entry and will I need to interview for this?
You are in the same competitive process as the regular undergraduates - ie there isn’t a separate quota or process for senior status students. So it is exactly as competitive and yes you would have to be interviewed.

You would also have to prove that you are ready to go straight into the second year of the degree - ie you have to show you are more advanced than the students admitted as first years.

Worth looking at at the webpage here: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/second-undergraduate-degree#:~:text=Senior%20Status,-Second%20undergraduate%20degree&text=The%20criterion%20for%20achieving%20such,reputation%20and%20selective%20entrance%20requirements.

It says “More recent academic achievements will carry more weight than qualifications achieved at school, although a strong academic profile will generally be expected throughout.”

Would you say it might be easier to apply for Cambridge?
It seems unlikely that Cambridge would be easier to get into than Oxford. Both are very competitive and law among the most competitive degrees.

Cambridge’s advice on second undergraduate degree applicants is here: https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/apply/before/second-undergraduate-degree

If you want to come in with “affiliated student status” (ie miss a year of the course) for law, you must get a first in your first degree.
