The Human Rights Law at The University of Strathclyde is intended to provide invaluable training and insights for those who have either a professional or academic interest in an evolving human rights culture.
There are three potential exit points from the course: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters. Assuming satisfactory performance, it's possible to change between these exit points. For example, a student who initially registers for the certificate may opt to continue studying to the Diploma or Masters qualification; likewise, a student originally registered for the Masters can transfer to the Certificate or Diploma.
The Human Rights Law programme may be completed or over one year (full-time) or over two years (part-time).
The LLM is awarded on successful completion of six modules and a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic chosen in consultation with a supervisor.
Successful completion of six modules will qualify you for the award of Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip). A Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) is awarded on completion of three modules.
Our graduates can, and have progressed to research studies such as MPhil and PhD in Human Rights Law leading to an academic career.
Students may also go on to work with international non-governmental organisations, eg Amnesty International, in the area of human rights advocacy, practice and promotion.
The qualification is also relevant to careers in international human rights organisations, like UN agencies for example.
