Acceptance onto the LLB - Law with International Study Programme



Available via distance learning


This module will permit you to study Law in a different jurisdiction at one of our non-European partner institutions in Australia, Canada or USA as a compulsory element of the LLB with International Study Programme. It significantly increases and deepens your choice of optional subjects available by permitting you to take optional law and law-related modules not available here at Exeter. It gives you access to modules taught in a different learning culture, develops your comparative law skills (both through studying law of a different jurisdiction and through your year abroad dissertation plan), broadening your overall experience of learning. The aim of the 'reflective log' element of the module is to focus your awareness on the impact of studying abroad, comparing expectations with realities and developing a critical awareness of the cultural and intellectual differences involved. You will be enabled to reflect on the problems posed by different study and assessment conditions and by the challenges of everyday life in an unfamiliar social and economic environment.

This module is only for students taking the LLB with International Study.
