This programme is designed for graduates wanting to progress onto an LLM or other law related Master’s degree in the UK. It is a full time course taught over one academic year focusing on different aspects of UK and international law including English legal system, contract law, law of tort, equity and trusts, and international law.
There is a strong emphasis on developing the learning and research skills required for studies at postgraduate level in the UK. The study skills module in the first term includes instruction on referencing and avoiding plagiarism, completing literature reviews, different research methodologies and approaching case study questions.
Methods of teaching and learning encourage students to evaluate, analyse, and apply information, and to appreciate the relationship between theories and concepts and the real world of legal practice. They also study communication skills and improve their approach to different employment contexts such as delivering effective presentations and making a good impression at interviews.
We appreciate that for students whose first language is not English, achieving the necessary IELTS score to meet university entry requirements is a daunting prospect. On our programme, you will receive six hours tuition of Academic English per week throughout the course specifically focused on the IELTS test.
As an integral part of the programme, students are given one-to-one assistance in choosing and applying to law related Masters courses at UK universities. External expert speakers supplement the teaching programme and trips to universities and other places of specific interest to law students are arranged such as the Courts of Justice and the chambers of legal firms.
The course will not only enhance your chances of securing a place at a good university but will also give you a strong foundation for success once you get there.
