CCLS-Associate Programmes in Commercial Law (CCLS-APCL)

The CCLS-Associate Programmes in Commercial Law (CCLS-APCL) programme allows you to study at CCLS for one or two semesters as part of your home institution’s requirements for international study. As an Associate Student, you can choose to take between one and six modules at postgraduate level taught within the Centre for Commercial Law Studies.  

If attending the programme, you will be a fully registered student with access to all CCLS events and facilities of the University.

You would usually undertake an assessment by way of a 5,000 word essay per module attended, submitted at the end of the study period. The results are then forwarded to your home institution for final consideration. We will work in unison with your home institution to meet any specific assessment requirements during your attendance of the CCLS-APCL programme.
