Applicants without a Law degree
We welcome applications from students with other qualifications or degrees in an area appropriate to the LLM programme. These may include Social Sciences (eg Politics, International Relations, International Studies), Humanities, Accountancy or Business Studies. Please note this list is not exhaustive and every application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you are an international student, please visit our international equivalency pages to enable you to see if your existing academic qualifications meet our entry requirements.
The LLM in Commercial Law is available to study over 12 months full-time or 24 months part-time. Taught components of the degree are delivered over the first and second terms leaving the third term and most of the summer to research, write and submit your dissertation.
During the programme you will be required to study taught modules and write a dissertation which together will total 180 master level credits. The dissertation, of c.15,000 words, is worth 60 credits and can be written on a topic of your choice, under the supervision of an expert in your chosen field. Students following a specialist pathway must complete their dissertation on a subject relevant to that pathway. Remaining credits are obtained from a combination of taught modules, the majority of which comprise 30 credits and are taught across the first two terms.
More detailed module information can be found on the Exeter Law School site.
As well as the dissertation, assessment is comprised almost entirely of extended coursework essays, with written examinations in some modules where appropriate.
