UOL-LLM PIL or Lancaster LLM Diplomacy&IL


hello everyone,
I've been a passive member of this community since long, but since the issue that I've encountered has not been discussed here earlier, I had to register and post for valuable feedback from respected fellow members.
I'm currently enrolled in the last semester of LLB(Hons) through a DL/ online program from BPPU, UK. Since I'll be graduating in June/July I have to be sure about my future prospects. I'm determined to complete my studies before entering into the practical field. I'm really interested in pursuing an LLM in Sep/Oct, so I've three options at my disposal.
1) LLM PIL form UOL-IP, this is obviously a globally recognized degree, no doubts over the prestige and value. The issue is that I want to complete the LLM in one year (if possible), which is only possible if I complete all 16 modules in one year by sitting for the 45 minutes written exams (no coursework or thesis). My question is whether it is practically even possible for a student to prepare for all the 4 courses/ 16 modules and get a good grade in all, with no resits? What is the probability for a student to complete it all in one year?
2) Lancaster Uni is offering through DL, an LLM in Diplomacy and IL, i really liked this idea of combining both fields together and getting a fine product in the end and an insight of both the fields. This degree is also available to be completed in 12 months, by submitting coursework of 5 modules (5000 words each) and a 20,000 words dissertation. The issue here is that I'm not really sure whether it would be even possible to complete the 45000 words (in total) research based submissions in one year? Anyone having an experience if it can be done in one year?
3) LLM is being offered locally in my country, but their international standing is minimal, and minimum time period for the degree to be completed is 24 months/ 2 years. So this option is the last resort obviously.
Note: I plan to pursue a phd after LLM and I am 26 already
Kind regards.
Looking forward to your valuable input.

I just started my LLM and will be sitting for the first time for an exam this May 2018 and I am already freaking out. Dude, 26 is still very young to me :) If you are full time student, I think one year LLM is possible. As I am working full time as well, I am getting it in two years hopefully. Cheers.
