Preparing for PG study at City

Once you have confirmed and registered, you can look ahead to starting with us. Here you can find out more about timetables, key dates for your calendar and reading lists.

Preparing to start

Over the summer we will ask you to give us a provisional indication of which modules you intend to take (for those who receive an offer after this date we will ask you to provide this information with your acceptance). This will provide us with valuable information when creating the course timetable.

On 21st and 22nd September induction activities will focus on supporting you in making your final module selection. You must submit your final module selection by 22nd September.

On Registration Day you will complete the formalities of registration, which includes checking all students' eligibility to study in the UK (so you will need to bring your passport) and issuing your student card. There will also be an introductory talk from the Course Director and other induction activities.

Receiving your timetable

Prior to Registration you will be sent a draft timetable. You will receive your confirmed timetable at Registration.

Your timetable will depend on the modules which you select. For each taught module you will be required to attend one two-hour seminar each week. Seminars are timetabled throughout the week between 9am and 7pm. You will complete two or three modules (depending on your chosen dissertation length) in each of the Autumn and Spring terms and write your dissertation over the summer.

The provisional term dates for 2017-18, subject to confirmation, are as follows:

  • Registration: 20th September
  • Induction: 20th September - 29th September
  • Autumn Term: 2nd October - 8th December
  • Autumn Term coursework due - date in mid January (TBC)
  • Spring Term: mid January - late March/early April (TBC)
  • Spring Term coursework due - date in early May (TBC)
  • Dissertations due early September

Reading lists

There is a reading list for each module, you will be provided with this at the start of teaching on the module.

Please note that text books are not provided on the LLM; you may therefore wish to purchase any core text books for the module. Your module tutor will advise you on this.
