Law with Business (including a Foundation Year) at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Once the Foundation Year has been completed successfully, you can then go on to complete your degree. Explore the links between the legal system and the business world as you embark on a Law degree with a strong business element. Gain a rich understanding of key concepts of Law and Business in your first year of study and experience our Work Based Learning module in Year 2. Final year students have the opportunity to focus their studies on areas of Law and Business that particularly interest them, developing their skills within their chosen specialist modules. We have strong links with local legal professionals and the wider community to enhance our course, and our team is made up of former practitioners and nationally recognised academic lawyers, committed to helping our students make their career aspirations a reality. Join the Student Law Society, gain an insight into law in the real world by volunteering with the Department’s Legal Advice Clinic, or get involved with Chester Community Law Project, the Law School’s student-led outreach programme which enables volunteers to use their legal knowledge to benefit our local community. Specialist opportunities such as guest lecturers and an array of co-curricular outreach, pro bono (free legal advice) and mooting opportunities, can enhance your skillset and transform you into a graduate that stands out from the crowd. Our graduates have gone on to pursue successful careers as solicitors and barristers as well as other professional roles and further study. Please note that for your Foundation Year, you will be taught at Gateway House, Chester.
