Pathways to the Sydney LLM or Sydney Law School Masters

There are a variety of pathways available to complete your Sydney LLM or Sydney Law School Masters degree.

Complete your studies in Europe…

Classes for the Sydney Law School in Europe take place at venues in Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Units are taught intensively, over four or five successive days. Upon completion, students must then complete the assessment. Several units of study are offered each year and each unit may count towards programs other than the LLM. You can count one, some or all of your units towards a Sydney LLM or Sydney Law School Masters by attending classes in Europe.

Complete your studies in Sydney…

You can complete your entire LLM or Masters program in Australia’s largest and most famous city. The Sydney Law School’s postgraduate coursework program is one of Australia’s largest with over 150 units of study taught each year. Sydney caters to approximately 15 areas of specialisation in law, with units taught by our very own experts as well as overseas visitors. Units are taught intensively or over an entire semester. If you’re a full-time student it’s possible to complete your LLM or Masters in one year by finishing eight units of study.

Complete your studies in Sydney & Europe…

You may prefer to combine study in Europe with that in Sydney. You can decide to complete half your units in Europe and half in Sydney, for instance. Alternatively you may like to complete most in Europe or some in Sydney. The choice is yours and your unit selection will determine your location. You may even find that you wish to finish your LLM or Masters in Sydney in order to attend your graduation ceremony at the University.

Complete a single unit to count towards an LLM or Masters…

You do not have to commit to entire program straight away. You may like to sample a unit of study, be it in Europe or Sydney. With a maximum time to completion of six years, you can start off with just the one unit and then you may wish to delay your study until another unit of interest is taught. So long as you complete the assessment, that unit will count towards an award course such as a Graduate Diploma or Masters.

Complete a Graduate Diploma and then upgrade to the LLM or Masters…

You may like to start out with a Graduate Diploma, which consists of four units of study. With approval you can then upgrade to a Masters. Many of our students commence with a Graduate Diploma in Law (GradDipLaw) and then decide to enhance their qualifications by transferring to the LLM. With only four units of study remaining to qualify, it’s a decision worth considering.
