Introduction

This 100% online and part-time short course is aimed at both legal and non-legal professionals who want to progress to a high-level career in international law firms or multinational companies. The course will provide you with key specialist knowledge of international business law that will help you to differentiate your CV and skillset.

Through this 100% online PG Cert International Business Law, you will delve into transnational contract law, competition law and the law of the World Trade Organization. In addition, you will develop transferable skills such as time management, report writing, communication and teamwork, which are valued by employers in all industries.

This PG Cert is available as a standalone qualification, but you can also use it to progress onto either the PG Dip or LLM International Business Law.

Teaching methods

We’re a 100% online education provider, so we use a state-of-the-art virtual learning environment (VLE) to deliver our teaching, resources and assessments. Our system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials. The VLE is accessible 24/7 and allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and live Q&As.

We believe you get the most out of your time spent studying when you are kept informed of your performance, and we achieve this by:

  • assessing you throughout modules rather than waiting for the end of year assessments
  • showing your marks in your grade book which can be viewed whenever you log onto the virtual learning environment (VLE)
  • rapid turnaround on work assessed to ensure your grade book is always up to date
  • ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Support team

Assessment methods

All assessments are delivered through our virtual learning environment (VLE). There is no requirement to travel to external test centres or to sit exams! Instead, you will submit assignments through the VLE, such as written reports, discussion forum participation or reflective journal entries.

We also have a policy of ensuring that the work submitted by students is authentic – we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.
