Not normally no. However, the university might have some value added factor going on – but it would be strange in an LLM. You need to actually ask the university.

However, it sounds to me that you may have confused what your tutor meant. The first semester would be a postgraduate certificate but not in Education, in Law.

A masters degree is comprised of three stages…

Postgraduate Certificate = first 60 CAT points of a masters – first semester
Posgraduate Diploma = first 120 CAT points of a masters – second semester
Masters = 180 points = dissertation

An LLM is generally considered to be a continuing professional development programme that does not offer any kind of certification, although you will normally need to be either Law Society or Bar Council accredited to do one.
