Established in 1829, Kingâ€™s College London has been responsible for some of the discoveries that have shaped the modern world, such as the development of antiseptic and the discovery of the structure of DNA.
Founded in 1826, UCL was the first university in England to admit students of any race, class or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. A pioneer of the university-based teaching of law, architecture and medicine, UCL has produced 21 Nobel Prize winners.
SOAS is the worldâ€™s largest centre for the study of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Founded in 1916, it has built an enviable reputation around the globe for its regional expertise and the calibre of its award-winning, cross-disciplinary social sciences, arts and humanities programmes.

Postgraduate Laws: Masters LLM, Postgraduate Diploma PGD, Postgraduate Certificate PGC.
The course of study of law at an advanced level is designed to further enhance capabilities and knowledge gained by undergraduate study.
â€œLaw plays an increasing role in all our lives. As such, everyone who wishes to take a leading place in society will benefit from postgraduate legal studies.
Advanced study of law has become a necessary key to open the doors of success in legal work. But it also greatly assists outside the strictly legal world, by strengthening intellectual skills, analysis and discipline of mindâ€.
â€œThe Postgraduate Laws programme is aimed at providing the tools necessary for success in all areas of life. It is very flexible and well adapted to the needs of people who study away from a fulltime university, juggling work, family and social commitments. A great range of courses has been introduced and many more will follow, suited to the interests and needs of people from a range of backgrounds.â€
The LLM (Master of Laws) is an internationally recognised postgraduate law degree, comparable to an MBA in business and management. Law students and professionals frequently pursue an LLM to gain expertise in a specialised field of law, e.g. tax law or banking law. Many law firms prefer job candidates with an LLM degree because it indicates that a lawyer has acquired advanced, specialist legal training and is qualified to work in a multinational legal environmentâ€
The degree is not restricted to lawyers only and any interested person with at least an undergraduate qualification is welcome to apply and not having an LLB degree will be offered admission either at the postgraduate certificate or postgraduate diploma level as the case may be and progress from there to the LLM.
Academic direction for the postgraduate laws is by Queen Mary, University of London and University College, London.
