The Information Rights programme was developed by Northumbria University in conjunction with the Ministry of Justice. It commences in February of each year and is the first postgraduate qualification designed to unravel the complexities of information rights. The programme recognises the increasing importance of effective records management and information handling. It aims to respond to the specific needs of information rights practitioners, providing a structured framework within which they can acquire and update knowledge whilst gaining a qualification that recognises their specialist expertise. This programme will therefore be attractive both to practitioners specifically charged with processing information and to other professionals working in environments where information is held, including central and local government, health, education and commerce.

Realistic practical scenarios will be used throughout the programme. As well as the core elements of the programme, a wide range of specialist options is available. All of the optional modules have been developed in consultation with professionals, including records management specialists from the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences, to meet the specific needs of practitioners.


The Law School is aware of a number of colleges in the UK (mainly in London) offering support programmes for students studying for our LLM Distance Learning degrees. These programmes of study have been designed as distance learning programmes with no attendance requirements therefore allowing students the opportunity to study for these awards from anywhere in the world. Increasingly, we are receiving enquiries in relation to “links” with these Colleges. The Law School does not operate any form of accreditation or validation scheme and has no collaboration, franchising, affiliation or similar type of agreement with any of these Colleges. Northumbria University is not the awarding body for any of these Colleges. If you require any clarification about this please email
