LLB graduates and final level LLB students interested in pursuing their LLM abroad - or an opportunity to study abroad for one or two semesters as part of a UCT LLM - could consider opportunities at several international law faculties with whom UCT Law has partnership agreements.

This is an innovative and exciting opportunity to study internationally, experience life in a Law School elsewhere in the world, and gain exposure to different areas of law with different geographic emphases - for no additional fees! 

We list here all of the universities with which the UCT Law Faculty has exchange programmes for LLM students. They include:

Please note:

  1. This list may be subject to change as the Faculty's Internationalisation Directorate works continually to improve and enhance our exchange agreements as well as expand to include other universities, and renew lapsed agreements with previous partners. 
  2. Only current and past students who actually intend taking up an exchange opportunity should apply, as purely speculative applications undermine the selection process and prejudice fellow applicants.
  3. While a small scholarship is available to assist with travel costs, successful applicants are expected to fund their own travel and accommodation for their exchange semester. Some universities are able to offer scholarship support, so please pursue all possible avenues, and be in touch with Patricia Phillips in the Faculty Office.

Please contact Patricia Phillips in the Faculty Office for more information about this opportunity, eligibility and requirements.

Application details and the application form will be made available when the call for applications is active. The call for applications will be shared annually, so keep an eye on your email. Watch this space!


The call for applications for study in 2024 is now CLOSED.
