Program description

Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law

AAU is a Recognised Teaching Centre through the University of London. Students interested in pursuing the Certificate in Higher Education in Common Law (CertHE) must be enrolled at a Recognised Teach Centre. The CertHE is ideal for first-time university students and for those who wish to undertake legal studies at a slower pace while building a stronger foundation for their LLB courses. Students whose school-leaving education is not equivalent to British A-Level may start their legal studies with the CertHE.

The totality of the program is designed to support laws studies at a slower pace while developing language and writing skills and expanding intellectual development in arenas that will lay a stronger foundation for future LLB courses and graduation.

Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law is a full-time 2-year study program. The Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law, offered as a two year program by AAU, combines the first year of the LLB with locally designed law courses and general education. 

At Anglo-American University, Certificate students take a total of 4 year-long UOL courses. In addition to that students take several electives from any of AAU's offered BA programs. Each course runs from September through May. There are 32 teaching weeks per academic year. Each class meets once per week for 2 hours and 45 minutes. Therefore, for each class, students attend 88 hours of in-class instruction per course per academic year. This does not include all time preparing readings and assignments that students must do outside of class time.

Admission requirements

Those interested in enrolling on the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law need not apply to the University of London; they must submit their application directly to AAU. While, like the LLB, this program requires dual enrolment, AAU is the institution that will evaluate the application and make an admissions decision.
