Course features

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated student adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor. To ensure you receive the support you need from your tutor, we cap our class sizes at 20 students.

Assessment

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. LLB (Hons) Law assignments are based on real-life work experience and assessed by tutors on an ongoing basis.

You are always aware of your current provisional grade right from the start of the programme, allowing you to evaluate the success of your current study methods and identify areas to improve.

We believe that this transparency gives you the information you need to make the most of your course. We achieve this by:

  • Showing your marks clearly in your grade book, which can be viewed whenever you log onto the learning platform
  • The rapid turnaround of work assessed to ensure that your grade book is always up to date
  • Assessing your work throughout the module rather than waiting for the end of year exams
  • Ensuring you have regular contact with your student adviser
  • The simplicity and transparency in the design of our assessment criteria

We also have a policy of ensuring that the work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

On successful completion of your LLB (Hons) Law degree, you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester campus.
