Faculty background and Video

Background for video

It is compulsory for all LLB and BA Law students to register for one of the 7 language modules in their first year. They must choose one of the following modules:

Afrikaans Nederlands (AFLL111/121)
English (ENLL 111/121 or ENLS 111/121)
Tswana (ATSN 111/121 or SETM 111/121)
Latin (LATN 112/122)
German (GERM 111/121)
French (FREN 111/121)
Ancient Culture (AKLR 112/122)

BA Law students must, except for the language modules, also choose a selective module from one of the following major modules, from 1st to 3rd year (in combination with law modules):

English (ENLL 111/121)
Phycology (PSYC 111/121)
Industrial Phycology (IOPS 111/121)
Philosophy (PHIL 111/121)
Political Science (POLI 112/123)

The idea with the video is to provide prospective students with the information that would enable them to take informed decisions during registration. We encourage them to have a look at the video before they arrive on campus. Once they arrive, there will be no time to look at this. Please also decide on an alternative module if your initial decision is influenced by a time table clash.
