Overview

The Brunel International Financial Regulation and Corporate Law LLM is designed for graduates interested in specialising in the growing field of financial regulation and corporate law in an international context.

Our programme, one of the few of its kind in the UK, will give you a solid grounding in the principles, procedures and practices underpinning international financial services regulation and the opportunity, through our range of elective modules, to tailor your studies to your legal interests and career objectives.

As financial services become increasingly global, and with the effects of Brexit on the sector still unknown, employers are looking for job candidates with the specialist skills required to stay on top of the changing regulatory environment. Your International Financial Regulation and Corporate Law LLM will give you that expertise and help you improve your career prospects whether in a law practice, the industry itself or academia.

You can explore our campus and facilities for yourself by taking our virtual tour.

EU and International entry requirements

If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must prove knowledge of the English language so that we can issue you a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS). To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

English language requirements

  • IELTS: 6.5 (min 6 in all areas)
  • Pearson: 59 (59 in all subscores)
  • BrunELT: 63% (min 58% in all areas)
  • TOEFL: 90 (min 20 in all) 

You can find out more about the qualifications we accept on our English Language Requirements page.

Should you wish to take a pre-sessional English course to improve your English prior to starting your degree course, you must sit the test at an approved SELT provider for the same reason. We offer our own BrunELT English test and have pre-sessional English language courses for students who do not meet requirements or who wish to improve their English. You can find out more information on English courses and test options through our Brunel Language Centre.
