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. There are four study options available: 3, 4, 4.5, or 6 year programmes, allowing you to study full-time or part-time to fit your studies around your personal and professional commitments. All programmes start in September with the exception of the 4.5 year programme, which begins in January.
Students will receive the equivalent of 11 large group sessions plus 11 two hour workshop sessions per module.
