About City

How you learn


The course starts with a two-day induction course on Saturday 21 September and Sunday 22 September 2019. This is designed to give you the skills needed to manage your study successfully. After the induction session you will be set a weekly programme of work for each of the modules.


For each module the syllabus is delivered through a dedicated online learning area giving access to specially designed materials, webcasts and exercises. Formative assessments give you practice in applying the knowledge that you have gained, and feedback from tutors helps to develop your understanding of the subject matter.

The detailed weekly timetable means that you will have a structure to work to, and you will have access to the teaching and support teams to give advice and guidance by phone and email as you go along.


There is a revision weekend to help you prepare for exams, where expert tutors will guide you through the syllabus highlighting key topics and explaining points of special significance.


The induction, revision and exam sessions are all held at City University’s premises in London. Other than this there is no attendance requirement. CILEx Law School is a specialist in supported distance learning, and although you will not need to attend classes regularly, you can be assured that you will have all the support you need to achieve success.
