What I would highlight: I have studied here. In my opinion, the teaching was exceptional. What I enjoyed the most was the way classes were structured --as workshops rather than lectures. The course content was well prepared too. It was an expensive course but for me it was well worth the money.

Part I (ICA)

Students must have passed either the Professional Postgraduate Diploma in GRC awarded by the International Compliance Association (ICA), or the Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Crime Compliance awarded by the International Compliance Association (ICA).

The University of Law will grant 90 (M-level) credits towards the MSc Law, Governance, Risk and Compliance or the MSc Law and Financial Crime Compliance, on your production of confirmation of completion of this stage. The credits are applied to the named award: if you hold the ICA Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Crime Compliance, then the 90 (M-level) credits will be applied towards the MSc Law and Financial Crime Compliance only.


Part 2 (University of Law)

The MSc component (either subject area) will consist of a series of modules comprising M-level credits.

“Law Background” route through either MSc
Research Methods module – 30 creditsPractice-Focused Dissertation - 60 credits“Non-Law Background” route through either MSc
Law & Practice module of choice – 30 creditsResearch Methods module – 30 creditsProfessional Practice Dissertation – 40 creditsStudents receive up to seven hours of supervision via e-mail from a University of Law tutor during each module, and further online supervision during the dissertation element.


Course assessment

The MSc is assessed via:
Research Methods module (both routes) – Dissertation Proposal FormLaw & Practice module (“Non-Law Background” route only) – Module Assignment and Portfolio ReportDissertation element (version as appropriate to “Background” route) – final dissertation courseworkResearch Methods module – the Dissertation Proposal FormThe Research Methods module builds to the submission of the Proposal Form for the dissertation appropriate to route – either the “Law Background” or “Non-Law Background”.

The module provides guidance in how to complete the Proposal Form, which is the basis for the dissertation stage: the topic area must be relevant to the MSc studied (i.e. either Law, Governance, Risk & Compliance, or Law and Financial Crime Compliance) and the assessment also approves the title chosen.
Students must pass the Research Methods module before commencing the dissertation study period.
