What classes can I take?

Your choice of classes don't have to be all Law

You can select from a wide range of classes that are suitable for a range of abilities, from beginners to more experienced Law students.

You must take 60 credits which is equal to three classes; but these don’t all have to be Law classes.

Please note classes run only during Semester 1 OR Semester 2.

Which classes should I choose?

Try to select classes that match your current level of study. If you haven’t taken any Law classes before, then start with a level 1 or perhaps level 2 class. Level 3 classes will need background knowledge.

You can tell the level of any Law class from the class code: level 1 classes start M91xx; level 2 classes start M92xx, level 3 classes start M93xx, etc

Unfortunately, visiting students are unable to select level 4 classes because of the pre-requisites for entry to these classes. Therefore, you can't select classes with a class code beginning M94xx.

Can I change my classes?

You’re asked to complete a curriculum choice form/learning agreement before you arrive at Strathclyde. This is a provisional list of your selected classes and can be changed if necessary.

You can change classes in the first two weeks of the semester through our online portal ‘Pegasus’. However, you should try to make informed choices before you arrive because changing classes once term has begun, can be disruptive.

Occasionally, you might need to change classes because you discover the class you've chosen is too advanced, replicates a class you’ve already taken at your home university, or is not available. It's important to make staff aware of this as early as possible, so that changes can be made without disrupting your studies too much.

How will I be assessed?

Exams take place in December and May

Most level 1, 2 and 3 Law classes use a mixture of continuous assessment (practical report/essay etc) and a final exam.

There are two exam periods at the University of Strathclyde: December for semester 1 classes, and May for semester 2 classes. You should make sure you’re available to take these exams.

However, if you cannot be here in December/May to sit the end of term exam please notify your academic adviser, when you arrive Strathclyde.

Who can help if I need further advice?

Before you arrive at Strathclyde, please contact antonio.cardesa-salzmann@strath.ac.uk, academic advisor or carol.hutton@strath.ac.uk, administrator for visiting students.

Antonio will be your academic point of contact throughout your stay and will be happy to provide advice and support.
