Why consider studying with us?
Two words: flexible learning. We understand that personal, family and work commitments are important factors when deciding whether to study, so we offer options that fit with your lifestyle. There are four to choose from:
- Full-semester courses taught in the early evening.
- Half-semester courses.
- Intensively-taught courses over three to five days.
- Independent research programmes.
Whether you are a practitioner keen to upskill in an area, a local graduate looking to specialise or international student looking to gain a qualification from a leading Law School, our LLM will give you the flexibility and choice you are looking for. Students can choose from over twenty five taught courses and entry to the LLM is available throughout the year.
You can choose to complete your LLM by the traditional thesis route, through our ever popular taught courses, or a mixture of the two.
