Interdepartmental and Intercollegiate students
Please note: Applications can be made throughout the summer and no later than Friday 20 September 2019
Students who have no experience of studying Law at university level are eligible to apply to Intermediate (first year) LLB modules only – Contract, Public Law, Property I, and Criminal Law.
Any student applying to take a module in Laws must be of a good 2:1 standard or, alternatively, A*AA at A level, or the equivalent, if the student is in their first year of study. In addition, students wishing to study one of the Part I or Part II options must have already completed and passed the pre-requisite Intermediate module in the same subject (if applicable).
Even if a student fulfils the above criteria, the Undergraduate Programme Director maintains the right to refuse a student a place on one of the Laws modules should they consider them not suited to the module, or should the module have already reached its full capacity.
How to apply for a place on a Laws module
In addition to the module information links above, interdepartmental and intercollegiate students should refer to the document below for the list of modules available to them and further course information for 2019-20 (including any necessary pre-requisites or special requirements):
Students may also wish to consult the draft timetable for lectures and seminars in 2019-20 in order to plan around their home department/home institutions' timetable. ELS modules are not included in the below document; students requiring information for any European Legal Studies module should contact the UG office at email@example.com
Please note that all LLB modules are full credit modules (i.e. they run for the full academic year, covering both terms).
