Course summary

This distance learning course is the first postgraduate qualification designed to unravel the complexities of information rights.

Course Overview

Information Rights has developed as a profession in its own right in recent years, particularly since the introduction of landmark Data Protection, Freedom of Information and Environmental Information legislation. This course is designed to meet the distinct needs of those working in the area, where a detailed knowledge of the relevant legislation and an ability to apply it in practice is essential.

The linked structure of the course gives you maximum flexibility in your studies. The PG Cert is the first stage award; you can either exit at this stage or progress to the PG Dip and LLM. This course is not eligible for the postgraduate government loan.

Your Future

Our graduates are equipped with expert knowledge and theory in their chosen field along with critical, analytical, research and wider transferable skills.

The course aims to ensure your development of legal knowledge, legal application and critical analysis and to equip you with the professional and reflective skills necessary for practice, whatever your profession.

The curriculum will enable you to apply legal skills to common problems you are likely to experience in practice, provide you with skills necessary to reflect upon and develop policies relevant to you own workplace.

The nature of the course means that, on completion, the majority of graduates progress to the Postgraduate Diploma.
