LLB Honours

Level 4 law courses are chosen in advance of enrolment and you are notified by e-mail of the courses you have been allocated. These law courses will be added to MyCampus by the School of Law and you cannot enter them yourself.

You must, however, complete other aspects of registration as a student on the MyCampus system, in the usual way.

This year you must take 120 credits at level 4. This must include the LLB dissertation. You must ensure that the dissertation is added to your plan.

The classification of the Honours Degree

An Honours degree is classified normally on the basis of 180 credits/units. This comprises the dissertation, all level 4 courses plus 60 credits from Level 3.

The method for calculating the final Honours classification is set out in the University Code of Assessment.


LLB with Joint Honours

Level 4 law courses are chosen in advance of enrolment and you are notified by letter e-mail of the courses you have been allocated. These law courses will be added to MyCampus by the School of Law and you cannot enter them yourself. 

This year you must take 120 credits at level 4. This must include a dissertation (see below). You must ensure that the dissertation is added to your plan.

Joint honours - Senior Honours courses

The procedure for allocating courses is not identical in every subject area and our practice in the School of Law may not be the same as that in the joint subject which you are studying. Therefore you must look at the online advice offered by the joint subject area to make sure you understand their process of entry to individual honours courses.

It is normal to take 60 credits of senior honours courses in the joint subject.

You must check the online information for the Joint Subject area.  You may be disadvantaged if you do not apply quickly for Honours courses in your Joint Subject.
