The LLM European Legal Studies offers students an opportunity to develop their own perspectives on the implications of legal Europe. It enables students to explore the issues and participate in debate, while developing their own legal skills and understanding. In addition it provides valuable training for a career in modern legal practice, in European, international and Government organisations, or in legal research.
Students must complete four modules (one assessment for each module comprising of a 5,000 word essay or examination) and a dissertation (not exceeding 15,000 words). Students must study two modules from the selection of European Legal Studies modules. Their other modules may be drawn from the modules listed in any other programme or from a combination of programmes, including modules offered by another School in the University.
Depending on the particular module, teaching methods comprise a mix of lectures and seminars, individual and joint written and oral presentations and distance learning. All modules are supported by extensive IT provision available on campus. Modules are typically led by staff actively engaged in research relevant to their subject matter.

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.
