Associate/Occasional Programmes

If you wish to attend a programme but not be examined or receive academic credit, we are offering specific associate and occasional programmes.

The core associate/occasional attendee programme is aimed at those who already work within the profession, but wish to update their knowledge in specific areas, or those who wish to attend one or two modules, simply for information purposes. There is no examination criteria and no academic credits awarded.

  • Two x 15 or one x 30 Credit Module - Application code - M2QX – September start only
  • Three x 15 or two x 30 Credit Modules - Application code - M2QY – September start only

PLEASE NOTE – These modules cannot be used for academic credit – the programme is simply for knowledge and refresher purposes only.

Please email for application links for M2QX and M2QY.

We offer modules across the LLM, MSc Law and Finance and Diploma programmes, accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board and conferred to CPD points. If you are an occasional, non-award seeking student and register for one or two modules, you can obtain CPD points through attendance of classes.

Centre for Commercial Law Studies-Associate Programmes in Commercial Law (CCLS-APCL)

The CCLS-APCL programme allows you to study at Centre for Commercial Law Studies (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 CCLS.  

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.
