International Foundation Year in Law

The International Foundation Year is a programme of academic subjects, study skills and English language training designed specifically to provide international students with a pathway to undergraduate degree study in law at The University of Law.

A degree from The University of Law is highly regarded. Many graduates go on to excellent careers within the legal profession in the UK, their home country and across the globe.

When you complete the International Foundation Year and achieve the required grades, you can progress to one of the following degrees:

LLB (Hons) Law – Accelerated (2 years)

LLB (Hons) Law – Accelerated is a two-year degree designed to get you to the next stage of your professional training as a lawyer or start your career as quickly as possible.

Provided that during your year at the International Study Centre your English improves and you meet the entry requirements, you can enter the two-year law degree.

The two-year LLB is the most focused professional law degree available. It has the same content and tutors as the three-year LLB, but it is more intensive with more contact hours per week (14h instead of nine).

The accelerated structure is a cost effective way to springboard to your career and help you save on living costs.

English Skills for University Study

You will develop your English communication confidence and learn a range of academic study skills. These include writing and reading strategies, presentation and seminar participation, organisation of time and materials, meeting deadlines and responding to feedback.

Subject-Specific Modules

These units provide you with knowledge and understanding of the degree subject(s) you will be progressing to. You will study a broad range of Business, Law and Finance topics that will be central to your undergraduate degree. These include areas such as contract law, trading structures, EU law, financial accounting, organisational behaviour and business management. You will be taught by lecturers who are specialists in these areas, and will help you to apply theory to real-world situations.

These degrees and grades are subject to change.
