Click here to apply via UCAS

The Extended Degree in Law is designed as a preparatory year to enable you to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills you need to progress to the first year of Bachelor of Laws (LLB) course. The initial year of the Extended Degree course will prepare you for the demands of Level 4 study by introducing them to a number of core legal subjects.

In order to progress onto the LLB programme, students need to pass all modules (120 credits) and pass with an overall average of 40%.

The expert tutorial support and knowledge that you'll develop in areas such as constitutional law and legal drafting will also prepare you for careers in related areas such as in public services, local government and the civil service.

You'll gain confidence and improve your study, practical and theoretical skills that'll ensure that you stand out to employers.

Progression to the 2-year LLB programme is acceptable with an average grade of 60% or above, and/or on the advice of the programme leader for the extended degree with the agreement of the 2-year LLB programme leader.
