What is Blended Learning?

“Blended learning” incorporates weekly video lectures which are uploaded to an online virtual learning platform to be reviewed at learners’ convenience; weekly virtual activities to be completed on topics covered; and fortnightly tutorial-style live “webinars” using the most up-to-date conferencing technology. E-learning is “blended” with “live” Saturday classroom-based workshops, which take place on a monthly basis. 

The LL.B. (Blended) programme is fully comparable to the full-time and part-time LL.B. programmes at Griffith College - only the mode of delivery differs, providing learners with professional or personal commitments, and those living outside of the greater Dublin area with a more flexible offering. This course is validated by QQI/HETAC at Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications and content and assessment is identical to the full-time and part-time LL.B programmes.

Students visit the Dublin campus on a monthly basis, however, they have access to all facilities provided to full-time and part-time students, as well as the option of participating in the wide range of extra-curricular activities undertaken by full-time and part-time law students at Griffith College, such as mooting, debating, FLAC and the Law Society should they so wish.
