Master's in International Human Rights Law
The Master's in International Human Rights Law is now offered by the Faculty of Law as an MSc. This course was previously offered by the Department for Continuing Education as an MSt, in association with the Faculty of Law. There have been no changes to the established admissions requirements, mode of examination, course offerings, curriculum, or directorship of the programme.

This four-week summer school, held annually in July/August in the beautiful surroundings of New College, Oxford, is aimed at those with some pre-existing knowledge of international human rights law or those that have no prior knowledge but can demonstrate a commitment to the field.
The intensive programme of postgraduate-level study focuses on the theory and practice of human rights law including an introductory course in the fundamentals of international human rights law, an advanced course in human rights lawyering and electives that address important contemporary issues in the field.
