Course Additional Entry

Applicants should hold a first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of a majority English'speaking country or have not successfully completed an academic qualification, at least equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree, which was taught in a majority English'speaking country as defined by the UK Visas and Immigration, to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.
