    Hey,

    I am really struggling with finding a course that has what I want. I really want to continue with law with human rights, a bit of global politics and I do languages too.

    When you look for a course don't just go by its name cos that doesn't cover everything studied.

    Have a look through these courses:https://www.soas.ac.uk/admissions/ug/progs/

    As above, SOAS sounds exactly what you're looking for tbh. I know when I went that they let you choose modules from different courses, for example, you could study Law + language

    https://www.soas.ac.uk/law/programmes/balawand/

    Click on the link and scroll down to where you see combinations, those are all the different courses you can take with your law degree

    You will also find that courses with the same name also have some completely different modules.

    You'll have to look around each uni and go through the course content and see if there is anything that appeals to you. Send out a few emails if you're not sure. If you're referring to human rights law specifically, I think that generally comes under a masters rather than undergrad.

    Which means...? :confused:
    If you want to do Human Rights Law, from what I've seen, it's generally a masters, which means you need to do your undergrad degree first then go onto study Human Rights

    https://www.soas.ac.uk/law/programme...ahumrightslaw/

    http://www.law.qmul.ac.uk/postgradua...ms/138032.html

    Some unis might have smaller modules for undergrad courses, but you'll have to email each one and clarify.
    So what this means is, you'll have to study your undergrad course (which might not have Human Rights Law), then once you graduate you go onto studying Human Rights Law at masters level.

    Hope this made sense :afraid:

    Look at the modules, I'm sure it would come into some of human rights would come into the degree programmes at SOAS.
