About the course
Suited to those who may not meet the entry requirements for the full LLB Hons degree, our foundation year consists of legal modules that help you enhance your confidence, knowledge and academic skills.
You will gain an understanding of legal education in the United Kingdom by studying compulsory and optional modules - allowing you to choose your route and specialist area of study whilst gaining a qualifying law degree.
Regardless of your chosen route, you will be assessed on the skills, attributes and competencies relevant to your chosen field of study.
Available routes include:
Route A: Practical Legal Studies
Enhance your employability by developing practical skills required for the practice of law. This route provides you with a step up to various training programmes and qualifications, including the Solicitors Qualifying examination, the Legal Practice course, the CILEX Professional qualification and the Bar Practice Training course.
Route B: Law and Criminal Studies
This route of study is designed for those wanting an alternative career outside of the traditional legal qualification routes, including civil service, policing and the probation service. You will further your knowledge and understanding of victimology; working with vulnerable people; policing and social control; the psychology of crime; and working with offending behaviour.
