About

The Law (Medical Law and Ethics) programme at University of Kent allows you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different areas.

Overview

The Law (Medical Law and Ethics) programme at University of Kent offers an exciting and innovative exploration of issues at the heart of health law. Informed by world-leading research, it will enable you to understand the broad legal and ethical and principles at play, to explore the political, social and institutional contexts that impact the regulation of health, and to analyse the complex interrelationships between health, law and regulation. This year, a sustained focus on the issues raised by responding to COVID-19 will offer a jumping off point for broader study.

This pathway is equally suitable for people with a background in law, medicine and allied disciplines, or an alternative discipline but with a strong interest in understanding the role and scope of health law in contemporary domestic and global society. The pathway offers an opportunity for further career development for those already working in these fields, or preparation for those interested in pursuing a career in the legal, health, public, government and voluntary sectors.

Careers

Employability is a key focus throughout the University and at Kent Law School you have the support of a dedicated Employability and Career Development Officer together with a broad choice of work placement opportunities, employability events and careers talks. Details of graduate internship schemes with NGOs, charities and other professional organisations are made available to postgraduate students via the School’s Employability Blog.

Many students at our Brussels centre who undertake internships are offered contracts in Brussels immediately after graduation. Others have joined their home country’s diplomatic service, entered international organisations, or have chosen to undertake a ‘stage’ at the European Commission, or another EU institution.

Law graduates have gone on to careers in finance, international commerce, government and law or have joined, or started, an NGO or charity.

Kent has an excellent record for postgraduate employment: of Kent graduate students who graduated in 2016, 98% of those who responded to a national survey were in work or further study within six months (DLHE).
