The LLM programme operates small-group seminar teaching, allowing for an integrative and interactive learning experience. Students are encouraged and expected to prepare for and participate in seminars so that they get the maximum benefit from teaching sessions.
All seminars offer dedicated teaching, open only to postgraduate students, including postgraduate research students, where the module option is relevant to a student’s doctoral research.
Students are given the opportunity to complete formative assessments in both the autumn and spring term, which acts as a practice assignment that does not contribute towards their degree. Rather, formative assessments provide valuable feedback which can be utilised constructively when completing summative assessments.
All summative assessments take place at the end of the spring term; this includes assessments for autumn options. Modules are assessed by either essay, examination, or a combination of both.
