Applicants for the Law postgraduate taught programmes should normally hold a minimum of a 2:1 class Honours Degree in Law (BA or LLB), or in a field relevant to the programme the applicant wishes to study, from a UK university. Applicants with degrees from institutions outside the UK will have their applications considered on an individual, but comparable basis (see the International web pages for details of entry requirements by country).
All applicants are required to supply: a completed application form, proof of qualifications and two references (one of which, as a minimum, must be academic). Applicants are considered on the basis of academic ability and potential and other relevant considerations are also taken into account. Applicants who have marginally missed the benchmark indicated above, are considered on a discretionary basis.
Months of entry
The postgraduate taught programmes in International Human Rights Law are advanced courses of study which provide students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the far-reaching impact of international law on international relations, with a special emphasis on human rights issues and their relevance to domestic law.
Active research interests of staff ensure specifically tailored and distinctive modules, and delivery sometimes takes place with visiting speakers invited to give seminars on the programme.
