Course detail

Our Construction Law and Dispute Resolution course provides a unique cross-professional perspective on this area of the law. Our programme includes a foundation course in law for non-lawyers and a foundation course in construction technology for lawyer students. This flexible course is taught to lawyers and experienced non-lawyer construction professionals over a series of intensive three-day sessions (from Thursday to Saturday) and is particularly well-suited for students based outside of London. It is also available for overseas students on both a full-time and part-time basis. You will have electronic access to the teaching and reference materials as well as physical access to the many specialist books and journals, which are held in the Maughan Library.

Teaching and assessment

The organisation of the MSc is based on four taught modules with nine full days of teaching for each module. These will be divided into three-day blocks, usually Thursday/Friday/Saturday, the second year will start with a three-day residential programme in Oxford. Students are expected to engage in 10-15 hours of self study per week. You will be assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations. In the 1st year 80 per cent of the course will be assessed through examination and 20 per cent will be assessed through coursework. The 2nd year 60 per cent of the course will be assessed through examination and 40 per cent will be assessed through coursework.
