Course summary

If you want to study law at a British university but don't have the correct qualifications, this course will prepare you for an undergraduate law degree. Subject to successful completion of the International Foundation Year (including the law module), you'll be guaranteed a place on our three-year LLB law course in September of the same year. The foundation year equips you with the subject-specific and general study skills you need to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. It is possible to seek a single visa for the duration of the four-year programme. For more information, please visit the programme page:


As part of the foundation year, you will take the compulsory law module in which you will study the English legal system, contract law and tort law. After the foundation year, you will begin your LLB and can choose from our wide range of modules. Please check our website for more details of the course structure.
