‌The ICHR has the largest cadre of postgraduate human rights students of any single university in the world. Since 2000, there have been over 700 graduates from the LLM programmes, and over 60 graduates from the PhD programme, drawn from all over the world. 

The diversity of the group in terms of culture, nationality, age and experience contributes greatly to the dynamism of the programmes and the life of the Centre. We offer opportunities to undertake a postgraduate degree on a fulltime or part-time basis and our programmes are open to both law graduates and students with undergraduate degrees in disciplines other than law.

Students are taught by expert academics and practitioners, including both members of the Centre’s staff and invited experts, working in the fields of human rights, international humanitarian law and international criminal law. The Centre offers a wide variety of modules from which students can choose. Our modules combine both theoretical and practical discussions, allowing students to gain a holistic and comprehensive view of important issues.

Students can take advantage of various opportunities to engage in extra-curricular activities at the Centre such as field trips, summer schools and advocacy competitions and to participate in our programme of conferences and other events which attract high level human rights policy makers from across the globe.
