How you're taught

This programme is taught at the Radboud University campus in Nijmegen during the first semester from September to the end of December. Students then move to the Nottingham Law School City site in Nottingham, and are taught there until early May. The LLM thesis / dissertation can be completed at either campus. Two of the modules on the programme are full year modules and are studied partially at the Nijmegen campus, partially at the Nottingham campus, and partially on-line through the Nottingham Trent University online workspace (NOW).

Lecture Capture

Having listened to student feedback, Nottingham Trent University have implemented a Lecture Capture procedure. Available in all teaching rooms that have a capacity of at least 50 students, significant investments have been made to provide our students with this audio-visual facility on all of our campuses. Where possible, the majority of lectures will be available for our students to access as recordings that are synchronised with presentation slides. This provides students with a great tool for recapping on lectures and revision.
