  • The degree enables you to enter an undergraduate degree even if you do not hold traditional qualifications or cannot meet the necessary requirements to enter the standard three-year degree.
  • The foundation year of this degree provides you with a grounding to learn the core modules of the course, in turn, building your confidence, knowledge, and skills for further study.
  • If you have a passion for law, and want to challenge injustice, this is the degree for you. Once you have graduated, you will have opportunities to explore different job roles within the field of law, and its surrounding specialities.
