Course Additional Entry
We believe in the importance of inter'disciplinary study and are keen to ensure diversity of skills among the student cohort. An undergraduate Law degree (minimum 2.2) is usually necessary for meeting our entry requirements; however graduates from related disciplines may still apply for an LLM degree if we can be convinced that they possess the skills to study Law at a Masters level. Those without a Law background would be required to undertake a course entitled 'Introduction to the Law' during induction week. In appropriate cases, we also ask for an IELTS score of 6.5.
