LLM in Human Rights


Adrien67

Hey guys!
As I want to do a LLM in Human Rights I wanted to know what good programs are held in UK-IR apart from the "big" universities ones, that I already know.
I've heard of Essex, which is told to be great. And I was wondering what was the worth of the LLM in International Human Rights in NUI Galway and the LLM in Human Rights in Aberdeen?

I attended the University of Nottingham, but did not specialise in human rights. According to what I've heard from fellow students, the university has a good reputation for human rights. They also seem to have enjoyed the courses very much. In addition, there is some kind of human rights research centre which offers a limited number of jobs to students.

However, I have the impression that Essex has a way stronger reputation when it comes to human rights. Usually, the discussion on this website focuses on the University of Essex and LSE (just look up the other threads).

If you consider choosing the University of Nottingham, make sure to have a well balanced mixture of essay-based and exam-based courses. A friend of mine had to write eight essays, which is no fun at all because you have almost no time left to properly prepare for classes.
