Course Overview

The LLB programme has just been updated to suit current changes to professional practice qualifications in the UK. It is offered at our UK study centres and also as a completely online degree. You can now choose specialized degree pathways, such as preparing for a future as a solicitor by selecting course modules that contain the information necessary for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1). If you intend to become a barrister in the future, you might instead choose to choose a program that gets you ready for a bar training course. Additionally, if you live outside of the UK in a jurisdiction that follows common law, you may choose to take elective modules on EU and international law.

During your first few years of study, you'll have plenty of time to figure out which parts of a law degree truly excite you. Additionally, you'll find that this LLB course aids in the development of a broad range of skills, including critical thinking, effective communication, presentation, negotiation, and persuasion. You will graduate with a highly acclaimed degree that will be valuable for the rest of your life, and workplace qualities like these are extremely valuable across a wide range of modern careers.
