Why choose the MSc in Law, Governance, Risk and Compliance?

Our Online MSc in Law, Governance, Risk and Compliance is a professional programme, delivered in collaboration with the International Compliance Association (ICA) for those seeking career-enhancing postgraduate qualifications. The programme is aimed specifically at building international legal and GRC knowledge and will prove hugely popular with students and firms from around the world.

The course is designed to meet the demand from firms for highly-skilled legal and GRC professionals (covering Anti-Money Laundering/Counter-Terrorist Financing, Regulatory Compliance, Risk and Legal areas).
