Course outline

This is a programme that is unique to members of the Royal Air Force. Students will be able to apply to this programme after completing the relevant RAF training on International Aviation Law and Regulation which is awarded Advanced Standing in this course.  To successfully obtain an LLM in International Aviation Law and Regulation, students will need to complete two academic core modules at Staffordshire University. These two modules are a 15 credit Research Methods module which is designed to enable students develop effective research skills and knowledge of various research methods in Law, and a 45 credits Dissertation module which is contextualised to a relevant area of International Aviation Law and Regulation.  Thus, the programme is a close partnership between the University and the RAF where both entities work closely to deliver the best possible outcome for the student.

Course Fees

The course fee is £925

Entry requirements

The entry to the course is by selection by the RAF.  Commencement of the course is dependent on satisfactory completion of pre-course preparation. All students admitted on to the LLM must have successfully completed an in-house RAF training course delivered and assessed by experts within the field of aviation law and regulation. All students will be awarded 120 credits advanced standing in recognition of this prior study and will therefore be required to undertake a further 60 credits, delivered by Staffordshire University, in order to achieve the award.
