Law

Foundation  |  Placement Year:   No
Sharpen your intellect, whet your appetite for independent thinking and test your problem-solving skills to the limit by studying a Law degree at Plymouth University. You will learn sound disciplinary concepts, principles and practices which will differ slightly depending on whether you want to qualify for the legal profession (LLB) or not (BSc). While you could go on to work as a solicitor, barrister or legal executive through the LLB course, you may prefer to pursue a career through the BSc course as a probation officer or teacher, or working in public, private or voluntary organisations. After completing the LLB course you can progress straight to the Legal Practice course -- a one-year programme that must be completed if you intend to become a solicitor in England and Wales -- or the Bar Vocational course if you intend to become a barrister.

 

This pathway is specifically designed to allow international students to reach their full potential in pursuit of a University of Plymouth Law degree. The pathway comprises of modules developed to ensure successful transition from international education systems to the academic structures of one of the UK's leading modern universities.
