Potential areas of research: International Trade and Maritime Law, Commercial Law, Equity and Trusts, Public International Law.
We offer three programmes of postgraduate study by research, all in either full-time or part-time mode. These are degrees by research which require an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline.
Students are registered initially for the degree of PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), although their status is probationary until the first Annual Review has taken place, normally between 12 and 18 months from first registration.
Entry requirements: a first or second class honours law (or law-related) degree or significant experience in law.
Selection process: wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Skype, email or phone.
UK/EU students: £7,650 per year
International students: £13,952 per year
