Q&A Archive

These were the questions asked during the Postgraduate Opportunities with Birmingham Law School live event.

We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.

We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.

Andrei Fedorkov asked:

Hello, David! I’d like to ask about language requirements.Do you accept the CAE or the IETs is the only available test?

David (Law Admissions Manager) replied:

Hi Andrei, thanks for your question.

We do accept other English language tests. Our website has a list of some of the tests we accept, and their equivalencies to the IELTs.

Rubya Yeasmin asked:

Thank you. I need an unconditional offer letter before 13 July as I have applied for Chevening Scholarship. I find it reasonable to resit my IELTS very soon by this month.

David (Law Admissions Manager) replied:

You would need to complete the IELTs before we could provide you with the unconditional offer, but there is still time before the Chevening deadline. Once you’ve received your results, please submit them to us as soon as possible so we can action the unconditional offer.

Rubya Yeasmin asked:

I have already in International Law course. What would be my status of application? Would you keep it pending for decision until I upload the document? Do you accept IELTS from IDP or I have to sit it from British Council?

David (Law Admissions Manager) replied:

It is no problem to have not uploaded the document at the moment. Once your application has been processed, if we are happy that you meet the academic requirements then we can issue you with a conditional offer, based upon your submission of the proof of English language. You can therefore submit this proof at a later point.

Rubya Yeasmin asked:

I am interested to study International Law:Crime, Justice and Human Rights. IELTS requirement is Band 7 overall. But I got 6.5. Do you think I can get an uncoditional offer letter or I have to sit my IELTS again?

David (Law Admissions Manager) replied:

Hi Rubya and thanks for the question,

You would need to resit the IELTs and achieve a 7.0 score overall for entrance onto our International Law LLM.
