This ‘top-up’ course allows you to use your existing Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (following either the LPC or the BPTC/ BVC) and to complete a Research Methods unit and dissertation or research project to obtain the fully-fledged Master’s degree.
To ‘top-up’ your existing qualification to full Master’s level, you must complete a single taught module in Research Methods and then successfully undertake a dissertation or research project in an area of practical law, law in practice or academic law chosen by you.
The Research Methods module is a preparatory unit for your research and entails 4 x 2 hour face-to-face or online (distance learning) teaching sessions at the beginning of the course.

This is followed by the production of your 15,000 word dissertation or research project under the supervision of one of the Law School’s expert members of staff. Supervisory meetings on the accelerated and part-time modes can take place via face-to-face meetings, the phone, e-mail or even audio-visually. Supervision is delivered via the online means on the distance learning modes with the need for face-to-face contact.
The course is very flexible and taught on an accelerated full-time, part-time or distance learning* basis. *Only the distance learning route will be suitable for international students.
