SiLS/Bond LL.M. Dual Award Program: Enhance your SiLS Experience!
What is the SiLS/Bond LL.M. Dual Award Program?
The Swiss International Law School and Bond University, Gold Coast/Australia are offering a Dual Award Program. By successfully completing two modules of the SiLS LL.M., and two subjects of the Bond LL.M., students will receive both LL.M. degrees.
Where and how is the program taught?
Whereas the SiLS Master of Laws (LL.M.) Modules are taught entirely online, the Bond LL.M. will be delivered in Australia at the Bond University Gold Coast Campus.
Who is eligible for the program?
Any student who is enrolled in the SiLS LL.M. can apply to enrol in the Bond LL.M. and vice versa. Because of Australian visa requirements, international SiLS Students must have completed at least two SiLS Modules before they study at Bond University. However, they may apply to the Bond LL.M. while still undertaking the SiLS Modules. Students already studying at Bond University do not have to have completed any Bond subjects before they commence the SiLS LL.M., and Bond Subjects and SiLS Modules may be undertaken simultaneously.
How will the academic year and transition be organized?
Whereas SiLS semesters commence in August and February, Bond semesters commence in January, May and September. SiLS students completing the necessary two SiLS Modules in December can usually commence the Bond LL.M. in May or later, and those completing in June can usually commence the Bond LL.M. in September or later.
How is the tuition arrangement?
Students will pay the relevant fees to the institution at which they undertake the subjects and/or modules, the tuition fees of both institutions being roughly equivalent.
How to apply?
