About this program

Legal and Constitutional Studies MLitt

The MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies is an interdisciplinary program in which students can construct an individually tailored degree with a primary focus in legal history or international law, or they can pursue an integrated, interdisciplinary, degree.

The MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies is an interdisciplinary program run jointly by the Schools of History and International Relations.

A part-time version of this program is also available.

Admission requirements

  • A good 2.1 Honours undergraduate degree in a subject-related area. If you studied your first degree outside the UK, see the international entry requirements.
  • English language proficiency.

The qualifications listed are indicative minimum requirements for entry. Some academic Schools will ask applicants to achieve significantly higher marks than the minimum. Obtaining the listed entry requirements will not guarantee you a place, as the University considers all aspects of every application including, where applicable, the writing sample, personal statement, and supporting documents.
