NFQ Level 8, Special Purpose Award

The Diploma in Common Law (European) is a one-year, full-time course. It is open to undergraduate and postgraduate degree students in UCC's non-European partner institutions.

The Diploma in Common Law (European) consists of core modules to the value of 25 credits and elective modules to the value of 35 credits. In order to be admitted to the University Examination in the Diploma in Common Law (European), a student must have satisfactorily attended prescribed modules to the value of 60 credits.

Workload Guideline

Where a programme contains elective modules it is recommended that students do not take any more than 40 credits in any semester. Students are therefore advised to choose their modules so that the workload is evenly spread throughout the year.
