Overview

Through this 100% online PG Cert International Business Law , you will delve into transnational contract law, competition law and the law of the World Trade Organization. In addition, you will develop transferable skills such as time management, report writing, communication and teamwork, which are valued by employers in all industries.  

This PG Cert is available as a standalone qualification, but you can also use it to progress onto either the PG Dip or LLM International Business Law.

PG Cert International Business Law teaching methods

We’re a 100% online education provider, so we use a state-of-the art virtual learning environment (VLE) to deliver our teaching, resources and assessments. Our system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials. The VLE is accessible 24/7 and allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and live Q&As.

PG Cert International Business Law assessment methods

All assessments are delivered through our virtual learning environment (VLE). There is no requirement to go to external test centres; instead you will submit written assignments through the VLE. For the few courses where exams are required, we use a virtual system which allows you to take academically rigorous exams from the comfort of your own home.

We believe you get the most out of your time spent studying when you are kept informed of your performance, and we achieve this by:

  • assessing you throughout modules rather than waiting for end of year exams
  • showing your marks in your grade book which can be viewed whenever you log onto the VLE
  • rapid turnaround on work assessed to ensure your grade book is always up to date
  • ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Support team

We also have a policy of ensuring that the work submitted by students is authentic – we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

PG Cert International Business Law career prospects

The specialist legal knowledge you will develop will be useful for roles connected to global commerce, such as a lawyer within an international law firm, a multinational company doing business across borders, a governmental organisation regulating trade, or a research position looking into the future of business. The skills you gain will also enhance your CV and unlock senior roles.

On successful completion of this course, you will also be able to progress onto our PG Dip or LLM International Business Law.

Qualified solicitors or barristers will also be able to use the skills and knowledge gained from studying the course to meet their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
