Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Greenwich has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Please note applicants MUST enter at year 0 on this 4-year programme. There is NO direct entry onto the extended provision - students with relevant entry qualifications wishing to apply to Year 1 should apply to course code ‘M100 LLB Law’ and NOT ‘M2FY LLB Law (Extended)

If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this extended degree may be for you. This four-year programme (the first student intake was in September 2016) includes a foundation year. The LLB Hons Law (Extended) programme’s foundation year is designed to give you:

  • An introduction to the English Legal System

  • An introduction to Business Law

  • An introduction to Criminology

  • Improved communication skills

  • Academic writing skills

After successful completion of the foundation year you will - over the remaining three years of the LLB Hons Law (Extended) programme - have the opportunity to study a range of specialist courses, equipping you with practical transferable skills that will prepare you for future employment in a range of working environments.

What Careers Could I pursue?

The LLB Hons Law (Extended) programme is a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) - successful completion of the degree will allow graduates to go on to undertake the further training required in order to qualify to practise, in England and Wales, as a solicitor or a barrister. As a recently introduced programme, there are not yet any LLB Hons Law (Extended) graduates. However, in terms of our existing, 3-year LLB Hons Law degree, aside from those working in the legal sector, our former LLB Hons Law students have gone on to successful careers in the public sector, including the civil service and police, politics, accountancy, ombudsmen, financial services and academia.
