General Education courses

General Education courses offer you the opportunity to learn about disciplines outside of your main field of study.

General Education guidelines

  • This is a required component of all undergraduate degrees.
  • LLB students enrol for LAW 121G in LLB Part I. Students accepted to LLB Part II cannot count LAW 121G as a General Education course and are required to complete 15 further points from the General Education schedules. 
  • Students not accepted into LLB Part II and who continue with another programme may be able to include LAW 121G as a General Education course in their other programme. For some programmes, students may also be able to include LAW 131 and/or LAW 141 as General Education courses. Please check your specific degree programme regulations.
  • Graduate students are not required to take General Education courses but do need to include LAW 121G: Law and Society as part of LLB Part I.
  • Students (other than graduates) intending to complete LLB as a single degree are encouraged to include 15 points of General Education courses (other than LAW 121G) as part of their 90 points of non-law courses in the first year. 
  • Students intending to complete conjoint degrees may defer their General Education course (other than LAW 121G) until after their first year.
