Qualifications valued by employers

Our qualifications are internationally recognised which means that in whatever country you live, your degree will be valued. Our alumni gain prestigious jobs in law firms, banks, multinational companies and professional services firms and go on to further study at prestigious universities worldwide.

Scholarship opportunities available

The University of London is offering fee-waiver scholarships to the top performing students in the Postgraduate Laws (LLM) programme. Awards worth the value of four modules will be awarded automatically to the students who have achieved the best average performance across five modules in the opening year.

See our page on the LLM Scholarship Scheme for more details.

Methods of payment

We are aware that currency exchange restrictions are currently preventing students from paying fees in full. We have two methods that will allow you to divide the payment and bypass this problem:

  • Select the 'offline payment' method during your registration and submit two bank transfers or drafts.
  • Notify the Fees Office that you wish to make part-payments by credit/debit card. An invoice will be added to your fees account. You can then log on and make payments via this statement or by telephone.

Study independently or at a local institution

In Africa, you can choose to study for our qualifications at a local independent teaching institution, or by distance learning.
