On this route of study, students must take 80 credits of taught courses in their first year and 40 credits of taught courses in their second year. A maximum of 40 credits can be taken from courses offered as part of another nominate degree programme within the School of Law.
120 taught credits must be successfully completed before embarking on the dissertation stage. The dissertation is compulsory and must be taken in the student's second year upon completion of the taught element of the programme.
Students who have not previously studied international law may find it helpful to take Fundamental Issues in International Law (LAWS11024).
» Any course may only be taken once.
» All credits must be equally split across semesters 1 and 2.
» Space on courses outside of the programme core course collection may be limited.
» You should ensure that your Programme Director has approved your course selections. (This will happen once you arrive in Edinburgh as a final check - there is no need for you to contact your Programme Director before arrival).
» There are no changes to courses after the end of Teaching Week 1 in either semester, and change to any courses can only be actioned by contacting the Postgraduate Office within the School of Law.
