Postgraduate courses

Westminster Law School has an international reputation for research into the legal profession and legal practice, international law and human rights, commercial and financial law. Our postgraduate courses are developed with this research in mind to offer you the very latest in academic and practical learning.

Teaching and course structure

We pride ourselves on very strong student-tutor relations, our class sizes are small, typically averaging around 15 students in a group. Students on our LLM or MA courses take six taught modules over two teaching semesters - typically three modules each semester for a full-time student, as well as a 15,000 word research dissertation submitted at the end of their studies. Each module takes one semester (January-April or September-December) of 12 teaching weeks, with up to three hours of in-class time per module per week, typically around seven to nine class hours each week for a full-time student. Modules are assessed by exams, coursework, or a mixture of both. Students are expected to take the majority of their modules from within their chosen course, but are able to take modules from other courses, creating an exceptionally broad programme of study.
