Pro-Vice Chancellor (International), Dr Mary Stiasny welcomed Vice-Provost, Dr John Walsh from the University of Guelph-Humber (UGH), Toronto, to Senate House to sign an MOU that supports opportunities for their graduates, often working in the police and civil service in Canada, to progress easily from their BA in Justice Studies to our LLM.
The MOU between the University of London (UoL) and UGH allows UGH’s Justice Studies graduates to progress smoothly onto UoL’s LLM programme and provides them with a 10 percent bursary. The agreement was established by the UoL Worldwide Global Engagement team and supported by the LLM programme team at UCL and Queen Mary.
Justice Studies Programme Head and Assistant Programme Head, Dr Gary Ellis and Dr Glenn Hanna and LLM Programme Director, Professor Helen Xanthaki attended the event alongside Director of Global Engagement, Mike Winter and Regional Business Development Manager, Americas, Caribbean and Europe, Louise Blair.
The agreement was established following an initial meeting between Dr Glenn Hanna and Louise Blair at the NAFSA Conference in Los Angeles in 2017.
Dr Stiasny said she was delighted with this engagement between the two universities, offering a unique opportunity for UGH graduates to further develop their careers through our dynamic LLM programme.
