I don't have a law degree. Am I still eligible to apply?
Yes. About 70% of our students are lawyers and 30% from a wide range of other fields, including medicine, journalism, forensic anthropology, economics and many professionals who work with international and non-governmental organisations.
How many people are admitted each year?
What is an MSt and how does it differ from an LLM?
The term 'MSt' stands for 'Master of Studies', a postgraduate degree awarded in disciplines including art, history and social sciences. Oxford offers no LLM degree in any field of law.
Is it possible to do this course full-time?
No, this course is only offered on a part-time basis. If you are interested in full-time programmes, please visit the Graduate Admissions A-Z list of courses.
Does Oxford offer a part-time DPhil (PhD) in Law?
DPhils in any law-related field are based in the Law Faculty and are available on a part-time as well as full-time basis. Further information is available at https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/courses/dphil-law
Will having the MSt make it easier to gain admission into Oxford's DPhil (PhD) programme in law?
Officially, no. Admission to the D.Phil. is a separate, independent process. Unofficially, doing well on the MSt has proven a help to our students when applying to the D.Phil.
