Add an international dimension on your legal studies with this challenging and interesting combination. As a qualifying law degree, you will still be exempt from the academic stage of qualifying as a barrister. The law doesn't operate in isolation, and in this course you'll gain valuable insights into the global political context as well as the social and cultural aspects of how the legal system functions. A large part of the course focuses on law; so you will learn how law is made and administered, gain an understanding of the English legal system and study key aspects of civil and criminal law. For the international relations part of the course, you will be given an introduction to the subject in your first year. You'll then take one international relations module in each of your second and third years. As this is a joint degree, and you have core courses; there will not be any options. The Level 3 ( foundation year) course prepares students for a successful transition to a wide range of honours degree courses in the complementary subject areas in the law and criminology department within the Royal Docks School of Business and Law, including: LLB (Hons) Law LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology LLB (Hons) Law with International Relations LLB (Hons) Business Law BA (Hons) Criminology and Law

We'll assess you with a mix of coursework and exams. Coursework can include essays, a reflective diary, oral presentations, practical exercises and answering hypothetical problem questions. Assessment is designed to enable us to see how you manage in a variety of situations that reflect the real world of work rather than simply focusing on traditional unseen exams. Throughout the course, you'll be given plenty of feedback to support you in your studies.

Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision.
