Law (Graduate Entry) at Ulster University - UCAS

Course summary

This degree offers an accelerated two-year programme for graduates who seek a law degree. It allows graduates in any discipline to obtain a qualifying law degree after two-years full-time study. The degree includes essential law modules for those considering a career in legal practice in Northern Ireland, and in England and Wales. Exemptions in other common law countries may be possible. For instance, in Canada the degree would likely qualify you to apply for an NCA (National Council on Accreditation) assessment and exempt you from the non-mandatory exams in Property, Tort, Contracts.
