    By focusing on Health and Social Welfare Law, this LLM provides a breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding that opens up enhanced career choices in the area of the care, protection, management, policy and representation of those who are physically or mentally ill, suffering from a disability, children, elderly persons and other vulnerable persons. The programme offers the opportunity to study the topic within its national, European and international context.

    Moreover, you can develop to become lawyers, non-lawyer advocates, social workers and even within the medical profession (including doctors, nurses and administrators and managers) and charitable/voluntary organisations.

    Further flexibility is also available - this programme is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis. In addition single modules may also be taken for CPD purposes.

    This course will develop your understanding of the contrasting approaches to legal issues. Further it will develop your analytical and theoretical skills through the study of law in its social, economic and political context, and also your capacity to conduct legal research, to analyse critically arguments, theories, concepts and evidence, and to communicate the fruits of such research and analysis clearly, literately and concisely.

    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.

    The entry requirement for this course is a UK Honours degree at 2:2 or above. We look for applicants to have a background in any discipline in order to be eligible for the programme; however, it is desirable to have a degree with a substantial Law component. If an applicant has not previously studies law, they will be required to undertake the Legal Skills and Research module as a compulsory part of their programme.We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry. If English is not your first language, it is usually required that you sit an English language test in order to gain entry onto our postgraduate programmes. This course requires a higher IELTS 6.5 with no individual component score of less than 6.0 or equivalent. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL iBT® test: 75 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
