If you are commencing in January the duration is 4.5 years. Students who start in January will study one module at a time, for a period of 15 months during the first term. During Year 2, 3, and 4 you will study two modules per semester. Fees will increase starting in September.
The modules are delivered on the Canvas online platform. A dedicated programme tutor will guide you through each online module, and will closely supervise your academic development and achievement of learning outcomes. You’ll be able to use following resources:
- Smart Reading Lists which link via Law Trove and the University’s online law libraries
- Two live tutor sessions (synchronous) per module, plus trainee solicitor and pupil barrister i-Tutorials
- Video demonstrations and consolidation guides for each unit and access to Keynote, JSTOR, and Worldbank databases
- Discussion forums where you can share activities and tasks, as well as upload documents and videos online
- 36 hours of online employability workshops which cover job search, CV writing, and interview tips

The i-LLB has the same learning outcomes and assessment structure as The University of Law’s campus LLB courses. This means you will graduate with the same degree as your campus peers. Students will develop a strong foundation of the major legal areas of English law. You will study two modules each semester, plus an additional summer term at the end of Year 3 and Year 4. Each semester is 15 weeks long, and includes 12 weeks of tuition, one week of consolidation and revision, as well as two weeks to complete your assessments.
Students will receive the equivalent of 11 large group sessions plus 11 two hour workshop sessions per module. You will receive feedback on 8 tasks per module as well as ongoing support throughout your studies. Overseas students will be able to sit exams at recognised centres (e.g. British Council premises).
