UKTD students who come to Hull for their final year will have to take six modules (120 credits). Of these two are compulsory and the other four you can freely choose from the wide range of options available. The only compulsory module is Law of Trusts. It is one semester and is assessed by 3 hours exam. The other is European Union Law. Officially it is not compulsory, and you do not need to take it if you want your degree recognised in Malaysia only. But you have to take it if you want your degree to be recognised in Britain. EU law runs during the whole year and is assessed by an essay in January (40%) and a 2-hours exam is May (60%). The assessment of the optional modules varies greatly, and can include coursework, essay, oral presentation or a mix.
For all modules, the contact with the lecturers is central. Ours is not too big a law school and it provides friendly and supportive atmosphere where every student counts. The core modules are naturally the most populous, and consist of lectures with some 200 students in a lecture theatre. But they are followed up by tutorials, where the course breaks up in small groups (with no more than 15 students). Tutorials are interactive, and give students opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussions. Optional modules are naturally smaller and allow for plenty of personal contact with the instructor too. All academic staff is supportive and provides consultation hours where students can approach them on a walk-in basis. And each student get a personal supervisor too.
Hull has many international students but has proved to be particularly popular with Malaysians, with some 45 direct entry students from BAC alone currently studying in their final year. You can find the Malaysian Student Association on Facebook! The Student Law Society is responsible for running an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. This provides a rewarding opportunity to learn new skills and improve confidence. In addition, students also have the opportunity to join the editorial team of the Student Law Journal.

The University of Hull has a long and distinguished history. Established in 1927 as a college of the University of London, the University achieved independence through a Royal Charter in 1954, becoming the 14th oldest university in England. The Law School is the oldest established department within the University of Hull and was founded in October 1927 with an initial intake of 14 students preparing for their professional examinations. Following a major reorganisation of the University in 2016, the Law School was joined by Politics to form a new School of Law and Politics (SLP). Together with the existing Hull University Business School – another partner of BAC’s – we make up a brand new Faculty of Business, Law and Government (FBLP), which promises many new opportunities for students in the future.
