Choosing courses from other faculties or universities

You will need to seek advice and prior approval from the Associate Dean (Academic) if you wish to take law courses from other faculties or universities and credit them to your Auckland LLB. Any courses approved should be at least Part III/Stage III or above and must relate to your law studies. Students will not normally be able to credit more than the equivalent of one year’s full-time study from courses outside the University of Auckland.

A course outline for the course you wish to take should accompany your application. Contact the Student Hubs.
