Months of entry
The online programmes in International Dispute Resolution can be studied part-time as Master of Law (LLM), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) or Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert). The PGDip and the PGCert are shorter versions of the LLM programme. Unlike the LLM, they do not require completion of a dissertation but provide you with masters-level content. The difference between the PGDip and the PGCert is the number of modules required (the PGCert is shorter than the PGDip).
