This programme is aimed at those students who do not wish to select a specialist LLM but who wish to study law at an advanced level. Students are given the opportunity to select a range of course modules from across the LLM specialist degrees.
This provides those students who do not wish to select a specialist LLM to study law at an advanced level.
Students must complete any four courses from within the LLM Programmes (subject to the approval of the LLM Director), a course in research skills and a dissertation.
The four courses may be chosen from the following list:
Prospective applicants should note, however, that the specialist Oil & Gas Law course modules on offer within the LLM Oil & Gas Law programme itself (LS501E and LS551K)are not available to General Law students. Instead, a module is offered which covers a range of Oil & Gas Law issues which are relevant to non-specialist lawyers.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Normally a 2(i) Honours degree in Law (or another discipline) or equivalent.
The English Language Requirement for all College of Arts and Social Sciences Masters programmes is an IELTS of 6.5 with 6.0 in the writing and reading (or equivalent TOEFL iBT or PTE).
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
