LLM

An LL.M. is the first step towards academics in many countries. It presents many opportunity to specialize in a particular field or to undertake thorough research. It can also prove beneficial in obtaining a doctoral level degree in law.

An LLM is a postgraduate program for law students who want advanced training and knowledge in a particular area. Specialization areas may include commercial law, finance, human rights law, tax law, and international business law.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Cardiff is the capital of Wales, with a chequered linguistic history that resulted in many language schools. It has various university hospitals, four major institutions of higher education, several academies and around 44 thousand high education students.
