For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This is a part-time degree offered over two academic years, involving both distance learning and summer schools. It is designed for lawyers and other human rights professionals who wish to pursue advanced studies in international human rights law. This course is offered jointly by the Department for Continuing Education and the Faculty of Law. It is conducted on a part-time basis over two years and includes two periods of distance learning via the internet as well as two summer sessions held at New College, Oxford. The course is designed in particular for lawyers and other human rights advocates who wish to pursue advanced studies in international human rights law, but may need to do so alongside work responsibilities. A central objective of the course is to ensure that you not only know but can also use human rights law. The curriculum places roughly equal emphasis on the substance of human rights law, its implementation and research. Students come from all over the world and from a variety of advocacy settings: in private and corporate practice, with various international and non-governmental organisations, the armed forces, universities, foundations, the media, medicine and other fields. The faculty is also diverse and includes internationally recognised human rights scholars and advocates. The department seeks the widest possible cultural, belief, identity and socio-economic diversity among both students and tutors. The first period of distance learning comprises six units of guided online study each of four weeks duration. Each unit includes a reading period, tutor-guided online discussions and submission of a 2,000-word assignment. For the second period of distance learning students work independently on researching and writing their dissertation with one-to-one support from an online supervisor. Summer sessions in Oxford comprise three weeks of tutor-led small group seminars plus a week for independent revision and two examinations. In addition, the first summer session includes a further week of dissertationâ??related exercises to prepare students for the independent dissertation work they will undertake in their second year. The degree is assessed by coursework (20%), examinations (50%) and a dissertation (30%). This course is taught partly online and you will need to have reliable email and internet facilities plus access to a conventional computer (either a PC or a Mac) to submit coursework assignments. The computing facilities required to take this course are set out at the Department for Continuing Education online support website. Advice about using mobile devices can also found on the site.
