British law schools are a great choice when it comes to online LLM programs as they often offer a course with an international emphasis and always in English.
Online LLM programs are usually offered on a part-time basis allowing students to work and study at the same time. Over the last few years – and particularly in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic – the demand for online LLM study has increased which means there is a great selection of course available.

UK students studying their postgraduate course at a European university are also likely to incur higher tuition fees than their EU counterparts. It is advisable to check with the individual universities in the UK and Europe for up-to-date information on tuition fees for all postgraduate programs.
