The non-specialised LLM programme allows students to follow any of the modules available in the year of study from the lists of the specialised LLM programmes and to complete a dissertation on any legal topic approved by the Law School. It has been designed so as to give students the greatest flexibility to pursue advanced legal study in any area that they wish.
Students must complete four modules (one assessment for each module comprising of a 5,000 word essay or examination) and a dissertation (not exceeding 15,000 words).
Depending on the programme and the particular module, teaching methods comprise a mix of lectures and seminars, individual and joint written and oral presentations and distance learning. All modules are supported by extensive IT provision available on and off campus. Modules are typically led by staff actively engaged in research relevant to their subject matter.
Cardiffs LLM Programme offers the knowledge and expertise to enable you to contribute more fully to your chosen profession through the development of intellectual competence and postgraduate skills.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
