I came here to discover something that I thought was lost to me, after 32 years of working in one company. For me, the support network in Bloomsbury is second to none – I’ve never known something to be so extensive.

Assessments

We use oral assessments, presentations, simulations, group, and individual, projects in addition to traditional assessment methods (examinations and coursework) so that you can explore and express your abilities in different ways. Assessments are not just a way of assessing whether something has been learned, but an opportunity to develop skills that will equip you in your future life and career.

Earn CILEx exemptions

Our LLB course is one of very few to be accredited by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) Regulation. Graduates who successfully complete the required modules in their final year will be exempt from two CILEx assessments should they choose to register as a Chartered Legal Executive.

Employability

You can complete an internship module as part of this course and expand your knowledge through the practical application of legal theory. Our Careers Hub also helps students to take part in paid and voluntary positions.

Applicants require:
  • 112 UCAS tariff points.
  • If you do not meet these requirements, you may be considered as a non-standard applicant.

Don’t meet these entry requirements?

Home students who do not meet these entry requirements can take our Admissions Assessments. The assessments consist of a short English test and a short Mathematics test that can be completed on campus or at home. If you are successful in our assessments, you will be invited to attend an interview which is normally carried out by one of the academics who teach on your chosen course.

During the interview you will be asked about yourself, what you know about the course, your motivation for studying and plans after completing your studies. There are no tricky questions, so just be yourself and use the opportunity to ask us questions too!

If you pass, you can be admitted to the course and we do not charge a fee for this.
