Taught course

Employment Law and Practice

Robert Gordon University · Aberdeen Business School

Entry requirements

A first degree in law, business or HR management and/or a professional qualification is preferred but not essential. If you do not have a formal undergraduate degree, relevant experience in the employment law field can be an acceptable substitute, subject to Course Leader approval. Proficiency in English to the level of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent is also required. Please note, UKVI are currently not accepting TOEFL as proof of English Language for Full Time International Student Visas. Those that are legally qualified have a slightly different Course content than those who are not. Legally qualified normally means those who are practising solicitors, advocates or barristers or have completed an LLB in the last 5 years. Those who have completed a British LLM or a Law BA may also be considered as legally qualified depending on the content of that course. This determination is within the discretion of the Course Leader.
