our llb programme is ranked in the top 20 in the guardian university guide 2019
this programme is designed to offer a unique method of study. it combines the advantage of motivational, productive feedback at our regular wednesday evening seminars with the convenience of flexible learning around full-time work, home/care responsibilities or other commitments. these weekly sessions offer a stimulating and enlightening interaction with tutors, who will help consolidate your understanding as your legal knowledge and confidence grow. at these seminars, you will receive guidance and support from enthusiastic staff who are experienced in helping students develop the analytical and research skills necessary for an understanding of the law.
three subjects are studied each year over three terms (october to june) and you will complete your degree in four years.
we welcome students from a wide variety of backgrounds, from those who are looking for a change of career to those who are returning to education after a long absence or those simply looking for the challenge of studying, and would like to gain a degree in law. our experience shows that all students bring their own valuable contribution to the programme and all can be equally successful in gaining an llb provided they demonstrate sufficient commitment and motivation.
for students that start studying the part-time llb, there is also the opportunity to switch to the full-time llb programme at set times during the 4 year degree, allowing you to complete the degree in less time.
applications are welcomed from students of all ages. there are no formal entry requirements for mature students on this programme. however, all candidates are interviewed and motivation and work experience are taken into consideration. younger students will normally be expected to have gained the equivalent of three grade cs at a-level, but all applications will be fully considered and weight is given to experience and potential.
the programme is fully recognised as a qualifying law degree by the solicitors regulation authority and bar standards board. as such, it enables our graduates to proceed to take the professional examinations that lead to qualification as a solicitor or a barrister.
