University of Essex Online announces the launch of the first-ever 100% online and part-time LLB (Hons) Law with Psychology programme. This programme offers students the opportunity to obtain a Qualifying Law Degree while nurturing their interest in psychology. This degree is in the process of being validated by the University of Essex.

Developed by subject experts within the fields of law and psychology, this degree is suitable for both UK-based and international students. The LLB (Hons) Law with Psychology programme is ideally suited for those with a keen interest in these two complementary and career-focused disciplines.

The course’s content also contains the seven foundations of legal knowledge required to practise law by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) including:  Contract Law, Criminal Law, European Union Law, the English Legal System, Law of Tort, Land Law, Equity and Trust and Constitutional and Administrative Law.

The modules covering psychology also give students in-depth knowledge of core specialist areas within the discipline including social psychology, psychological development and many more.

Naila Anwar, Head of Law for University of Essex Online, said: “We’re extremely excited to be the first UK higher education provider to launch a 100% online and part-time LLB (Hons) Law with Psychology programme. My team and I have worked hard to create an engaging and thought-provoking course that will enable students to stand out in the highly competitive fields of both law and psychology.”

The first intake for this programme will be in September 2018, with more planned at regular intervals throughout the following year.

Students at University of Essex Online study entirely online using a virtual learning platform, receiving high-quality resources and support from experienced tutors. This allows students around the world to discuss and debate key issues within their disciplines, discover specialised areas/or applications of theories and build working and social relationships with classmates.

Upon completion of the LLB (Hons) Law with Psychology graduates will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex campus in Colchester.
