    This stream is intended for those who are interested in working in institutions related to public international law or those who would like to gain specific knowledge of this area for governmental and non-governmental opportunities. With an additional five new modules, a more cohesive structure is offered as an introductory base for students who may not have a background in International Law especially if they do not possess a law degree.

    Duration and mode of study
    One year full-time or two to five years part-time.

    Course structure
    You will take three 15 credit compulsory modules, two in semester one and one in semester two, which cover fundamental international law issues.

    * Writing Skills
    * General Principles in International Law
    * Current Trends in International Law

    You must then select 45 credits of modules from the list below and 30 credits of modules from the LLM General Programme. You will also be required to complete a 60 credit dissertation on a topic within the area of public international law.

    * Contemporary Legal Problems of World Trade
    * Current Trends in International Law
    * Diplomatic Law
    * Feminist Perspectives on International Law
    * General Principles of International Law

    * The Law of Armed Conflict

    Teaching and assessment methods
    The modules are taught by seminars which are designed to allow students to discuss and debate the subject, with guidance from the tutor. All modules are assessed by written coursework, although other forms of assessment may be used as well. Students also complete a dissertation over the summer months. This can be normally in the stream of their choice but is subject to the staffing resources being available. Students registered for the LLM in International Commercial Law have priority within that stream.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
