International Human Rights Law
The Department for Continuing Education offers two courses in the field of international human rights law, taught by an internationally-recognised faculty and combining both academic and practical experience.
The Master's in International Human Rights Law is offered part-time over two academic years, involving both distance learning and residential summer schools. It is aimed at 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.
Offered jointly by the Department for Continuing Education and the Faculty of Law. A number of scholarships are available.
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.
Students and research
