Graduate Diploma in Law (full-time/part-time)

Our GDL is designed to build knowledge and skills that more than match a law degree. Academic training is built around real-life examples and case studies, and you’ll be given research assignments that directly reflect the way you’ll work as a lawyer. You’ll have the opportunity to explore an area of law that interests you via your own Research Project or our unique Law of Organisations module.

MA Law (full-time)

Our MA Law is designed specifically for non-law graduates to gain a legal qualification at Masters level. The MA Law is an internationally recognised qualification, so it’s ideal for a career path in or outside of the legal sector. MA Law students may also be eligible for a student loan.
