Details

Students are required, other than in exceptional circumstances, to have studied law or a relevant field prior to admission onto the programme, and to have achieved the equivalent of an upper second class honours degree in the subject. There is an English language requirement for students whose first degree was not taught and assessed in English. Such students are required to have a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 (including 6.0 in writing) or equivalent in another recognised English language qualification.

Within this framework, consideration is also given to applications for Accredited Prior Learning (APCL) or experiential learning (APEL). This is also considered for students who have partially completed a relevant Masters programme in another country or who may have a professional Postgraduate Diploma. The student’s prior learning claim is mapped against the learning outcomes of the course. The decision on a claim rests with the Admissions Tutor or Course Leader, subject to confirmation by the Dean or a nominee and ratification by the APL Board. Students need to have enrolled on the course before a claim for APL can be assessed.

All candidates must be at least 23 years of age on the day of enrolment. Candidates who have met the minimum requirements will then be invited for a formal interview by a panel of 2 persons and must satisfy the panel of their suitability to study on the course.

Online application to WIUT for 2017/18 Academic year opens on the 6th of February 2017. All applicants must apply through admission.wiut.uz electronic system.
