Which Diploma course?
Oct 11th, 2007 at 10:33pm
 
I'm starting my final year and contemplating the Diploma next year.  I'm looking for information or advice on which uni to apply to.

My main issue is contact hours. I have heard various rumours about the contact hours expected at different Unis. Because I still need to pay my mortgage I was hoping to be able to work part time during the Diploma so I am not too keen on a cousre where you have to physically attend the Uni 40 hours a week or something.

I dont mind putting the work in or anything, it's just when I do it and how flexible the course is.

I have a traineeship so I am not worried about the reputation or lack of it of the course - I doubt they will care. At this stage iot's just the practicalities. any inside info warmly welcoemd!

As I understand it, the Diploma course modules are written centrally and that then taught as a "franchise" at the providing universities.

Someone who has done the course will be able to give you a better understanding of the demands, but I imagine they will all be similar in terms of demand.

I am led to believe by reliable sources that the Diploma will be offered on a p/t time basis in the next year or two. This addresses the problem of those who work full-time and do p/t LLBs for 5 years, only to then have to rack up a huge amount of debt during the diploma year!

You could try asking the Law Soc Scot, but not sure how much is in the public domain.
