Procurement Law, Strategy and Practice by Distance Learning LLM

Focusing on procurement law, strategy and practice, this innovative distance learning programme will equip students with the key skills required to occupy senior level positions within public and private sector procurement. You will gain a prestigious Masters-level qualification with a specialisation in procurement law, strategy and practice, which will provide a springboard for those already working in procurement-related professions to accelerate their career progression. Those who desire to pursue a career in this area will be provided with a unique opportunity to rapidly elevate their understanding and to enter the profession at a senior level.

The programme will be delivered by the expert multi-disciplinary team at Bangor University’s internationally recognised Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies, and supplemented by expert guest masterclasses.

Delivered on a part-time, distance learning basis, this course will appeal to candidates who wish to remain in full-time work whilst engaging in part-time study, or those who cannot physically move to the UK to engage in postgraduate study.

Course Duration

This course has a January start date. This is a 2-year part-time programme, upon successful completion of which the candidate will be awarded an LLM Masters in Procurement Law, Strategy and Practice.

For some candidates who do not wish to proceed to the Masters level, there are also 2 exit qualifications available, namely the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Procurement Law, Strategy and Practice.

In order to gain the Postgraduate Certificate, the candidate will complete either 4 modules (normally taken over a 1 or 2 year period); or 8 modules to attain the Postgraduate Diploma (normally taken over a 2 year period). 

Those wishing to be awarded the LLM Masters in Procurement Law, Strategy and Practice will additionally have to successfully complete a dissertation / applied procurement research project, typically on a “live” procurement problem or challenge facing a public/private sector organisation.

This research project will not only provide a demonstration of how to apply your learning to a “real world” problem, but will also enhance your employability and career progression prospects.

Course content is for guidance purposes only and may be subject to change.

Distance Learning

Teaching will be in the form of a dynamic combination of pre-recorded lectures available online and live lectures facilitated by our leading experts.

Each module will be driven by class discussions and relevant case study analysis at designated module times.

Study materials will also be made available to participants online. Those participants unable to partake at the time of delivery would be able to download these live lecturers at a convenient time of their choosing.

However, we do recommend that all participants engage with the online delivery schedule in order to advance the level of engagement with fellow virtual class mates.

There will also be ample opportunity to engage with module leaders on a one-to-one basis to ensure that all participants are advancing as expected and keeping up with their study.

Careers & Employability

This programme will be of interest to several categories of applicants.

First, those working in a procurement role in either the public or private sectors: it will provide the ideal platform for those who wish to accelerate their career progression.

Second, the course is also suitable for those not yet in full-time employment, but who have a desire to pursue a career in this area. The programme’s focus on procurement law, strategy and practice will equip students with the portfolio of key skills required to occupy senior level positions within public and private sector procurement. 

This programme enables candidates to develop their legal and procurement management expertise, and will provide a springboard for career progression in Public or Private Sector Procurement, or into public or private bodies, all of whom have procurement functions, which need to be serviced.

Candidates who are already working in industry will develop their expertise in order to advance their career prospects, and upgrade their level of skills.

The course is also suitable for those not yet in full-time employment, but who have a desire to pursue a career in this area. 

Previous graduates from our 1-year full-time LLM in Public Procurement Law & Strategy have found our programme to be particularly effective in enhancing employability.

Research/Links with Industry

The delivery programme is led by Bangor University’s internationally-recognised Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies, with its multi-disciplinary team of professors and senior academics. The course is further enriched by expert guest lecturers – a central feature of every module. Students will also benefit from the opportunity to network with, and learn from, procurement thought leaders and innovators who participate in Bangor University’s highly acclaimed annual Procurement Week conference, which features presentations, workshops and seminars by leading procurement professionals from around the world. Those not able to physically attend Procurement Week can participate over the web.
