Construction Law and Dispute Resolution

The MSc in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution degree is studied by distance learning, but one to one tutorials can be arranged by phone or in London. The course leader keeps in regular contact with students to assist with progress. In addition to the distance learning materials and online tutorials, students attend two residential workshops during the course at which nationally renowned speakers lead seminars and are available for discussion. These workshops provide an ideal and essential forum for student interaction and networking.

If students decide to exit from the Master's degree programme they may then be awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Construction Law, or the Postgraduate Diploma in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution, but only if they have achieved the necessary requirements.

The course has RICS accreditation and therefore membership of the RICS is available via the APC route, following successful completion. The University is also a Recognised Course Provider under the CIArb Pathways Scheme. Successful completion of the MSc will entitle a student to apply to the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators for the use of the designated letters ‘MCIArb’.

This course has been running since 2002 and has attracted students and interest from all over the world, including Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, West Indies, South Africa, France, Germany, Nigeria, Zambia, Egypt, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates, amongst others.

The cost of the course is currently approx. £6500 for UK, EU and International students whether part time or full time and that includes any residential apart from transport costs. Applications are accepted until early August of each year.
