Course content

The Law School offers places to read for a postgraduate research degree only where it can provide full support to the student and the project. Supervision is the most important element of the programme. Considerable attention is paid to the formulation of a supervisory team that can deliver both subject expertise and research training and development. In addition, all students who do not already have the necessary qualification or its equivalent, take the Postgraduate Certificate in Social Science Research Methods.
