Assessment methods

Teaching methods are through large group and small group sessions.

The large group sessions are similar to lectures but are much more interactive.  The small group sessions are practical and transactional workshops designed to replicate the work of a trainee solicitor in practice.  Trainees effectively act for fictional clients in these sessions in order to develop the skills and knowledge to deal with real situations that arise in practice.

These sessions have been designed to build confidence and essential skills in a friendly, professional and, ultimately, rewarding environment.

Sponsorship information

Professional and Career Development Loans (PCDLs) are offered by a small number of high street banks for students on taught master’s degrees. You may be able to borrow between £300 - £10,000 and the Government pays your interest while you study. Repayments begin once you have finished your course, so you need to be confident that you will be able to repay the loan.
To order an application pack or receive further advice/information please call the PCDL helpline on 0800 585 505 or visit the direct.gov website.

If you are advised by a bank or the National Careers Service that the degree you are interested in is not registered on the Professional Career Development Loan list please let us know by emailing StudentFinance@swansea.ac.uk. If the programme is eligible we will then arrange for it to be registered.
