Advice to applicants

There is significant competition for the limited places available on all of our four-year degrees with international study. Unfortunately, many applicants who meet our entry requirements will not be successful in receiving an offer for the international study programme.  Where this is the case we will automatically consider you for our three year degree course.

Any exceptional circumstances (eg illness prior, on-going or at the time of your exams) surrounding your application should be included in your personal statement and backed up in your academic reference or the School of Law should be informed in writing prior to your examination results.

How your application is considered

Your UCAS application is always considered as a whole; taking into account your qualifications, personal statement and reference. 

We consider the Widening Participation status of applicants while assessing applications; borderline candidates holding a WP or WP Plus flag are given further consideration.

Potential applicants are welcome to contact the School of Law Admissions Office to discuss their eligibility.


Applications for deferred entry are not considered.

Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications

If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course. If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.


We do not consider applications for the second or third year of the course.

No credit will be given for prior learning.
