Students accepted to the Postgraduate Laws programmes offered by the University of London start at three points of entry, namely at PGCert, PGDip or LLM. Your point of entry is determined by your entry qualifications but does not set your exit award. It is your choice to leave the programme with a PGCert, PGDip or and LLM - or all three!
