We are looking for evidence that you: – have made an informed decision to study the intersection of law and finance and are highly motivated – have a track record of outstanding academic achievement – have a proven ability to work hard and the ability to participate in a very demanding degree programme – have the maturity to cope with a professional learning environment, Although previous work experience is not essential. There are two core courses in finance (Finance and First Principles of Financial Economics) and an interdisciplinary core course (Law and Economics of Business Transactions). Finance is taught during the first and second semesters. The first principles of financial economics are taught in the first semester and the law and economics of business transactions in the second and third semesters. Currently, MLF students can choose the finance component as an alternative to two optional law courses, which are taught through interactive courses at Saïd Business School in the second and third semesters. If you select the Finance stream, you will only take one elective course in law. Instead of the second elective course, you will take a mandatory finance course, Business Valuation, in the second semester and an elective course in finance in the third semester. The financial choice menu was chosen from those of Saïd Business School for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and MSc in Financial Economics (MFE), which include finance courses designed to complement the MLF program. Elective courses are studied at Saïd Business School with MBA and MFE students. The Funding component is expected to be available in the coming years, subject to announcement.
« Dear . Thank you for your email. In accordance with the course description, students studying the MLF can choose to follow the law or financial flow. Currently, MLF students can select the Finance stream. The Funding component is expected to be available in the coming years, subject to announcement. The University will endeavor to offer this course as described on this course page. However, there may be situations in which it is desirable or necessary for the university to make changes to the range of courses offered before or after enrolment. Course structure and options are subject to constant review in order to maintain the world-class standard of teaching at the University of Oxford. The availability of different electives depends on many factors, such as the availability of capacity in relevant electives and the availability of teachers. In addition, the University always strives to offer students the best set of courses to optimally prepare them for the following postgraduate positions so that they can meet the requirements profile of potential employers. I am concerned that we will not be able to provide additional information on the availability of choices. The maintenance of different electives is a dynamic process that is subject to constant change and reassessment.
It would therefore be inappropriate to predict a conclusive answer to this question at this stage. Sorry, we can`t give a more helpful answer. Sincerely » Hello everyone, I thought I should ask for advice. I am a candidate and I have an offer for the Oxford MLF and the Cambridge MCL. I hope to become an academic in banking and finance, do you have any ideas on the course I should take? I should add that as Oxford has just made its conditional offer, I do not know which college I will be admitted to. Cambridge offered me a beautiful university. I just heard the shittiest news. I work for a professor who has very close contacts at Oxford. It appears that the financial component will no longer be offered this year and subsequent years, but that this decision will only be communicated when applicants have already had to decide whether or not to accept their place. This would be due to the fact that MLF graduates regularly lowered the level of the corresponding financial courses and thus detracted from the experience of MBA and economics students. In addition, employers in the financial sector reportedly complained to former course director John Armour that graduates have few quantitative skills and are therefore not fit for the corresponding job.
Therefore, Oxford wants to abolish the financial flow altogether and move towards the MCL concept of Cambridge. I think this is also consistent with news from various sources that parts of the BCL and MLF will be online anyway in the next academic year and that this decision will not be communicated at this time. If you search or request relevant information on the website, you will only get the information that it is still too early to say anything about the situation in September. On the MLF course page (the university`s, not the faculty`s) in the « About » category. Finance Stream there is a sentence at the very end of the page that essentially reveals the information, but also says that there is no exact information yet. I`m one of those candidates who have an offer for the MLF, but were rejected after a long wait for the MJur, and so I`m still angry with the university. The fact that such decisions are not communicated openly annoys me greatly. I am extremely disappointed with the university and the whole process. In fact, I had planned to have the opportunity to work in the financial sector at MLF. Now that this is not possible and I am extremely annoyed by the whole organization of the University of Oxford, I will do the Cambridge MCL. Without the cash flow, the only difference is that the MCL has a better reputation, is better organized, and offers better job opportunities. I`m so annoyed with Oxford University that I can`t even put it into words.
I hope this information will help you. I was incredibly upset and thought it would be unfair to hide this information from you. For the 2023-2024 academic year, the range of the likely cost of living for full-time studies is between around £1,290 and £1,840 for each month at Oxford. Full information, including a breakdown of the likely cost of living in Oxford for items such as food, accommodation and tuition, can be found on our Cost of Living page. If you are planning your finances for future years of study at Oxford after 2023-2024, it is recommended to take into account potential increases in the cost of living of 5% or more each year – although this rate can vary considerably depending on changes in the national economic situation. The rise in inflation in the UK is constantly being reviewed and this page is updated. Students studying the MLF take three core courses and then opt for the legal or financial track. There are also pre-sessional courses in mathematics and financial reporting.
The University of Oxford`s MLF programme is a unique blend where candidates learn the fundamentals of finance, while law subjects focus on these fundamental concepts and explain how law and policy would attempt to fill in the gaps. MLF graduates pursue successful and influential careers in law, finance, politics and academia. Graduates have worked as interns or associate lawyers and lawyers, building successful careers as entrepreneurs or in investment and banking. Many graduates have made the transition from their home countries to careers in London, New York, Paris, Singapore and many other places around the world. Oxford has brilliant faculties, particularly in the area of corporate law, finance and financial regulation, I look forward to gaining a better perspective on academic research in law and finance through their teaching and research. Further conferences will be held to complement the MLF programme, facilitating contacts with experienced legal and financial practitioners, and MLF students will be members of both SBS and the university`s wider alumni network. « I got so much tangible value from what I experienced during the MLF in Oxford. The many concepts I was taught at Oxford explained much of the financial jargon I didn`t understand during law school. Recently, I worked with Saïd Business School on FinTech and I accompanied players in the financial sector on elements of their field of expertise, even though I have been working in their sector for many years. » MLF Graduate This is assessed on your reasons for applying, demonstrating your motivation and understanding of the proposed field of study, your ability to present a reasoned case in English, and your commitment to law and finance.
