Admission to a postgraduate diploma programme in Law is generally limited to applicants holding a law degree, or equivalent undergraduate degree. PGDip programmes start in February each year, and to graduate with a PG Diploma students must complete four courses - as prescribed for the specialisation they select - within one academic year.
While students doing the general PGDip are free to choose from the numerous courses on offer, those undertaking one of the specialised programmes must ensure that they take the courses prescribed by that specialisation, as set out in the Law Faculty Handbook.
