This Qualifying Law Degree has a flexible timetable designed to fit around your existing commitments.
If you require a legal qualification to get to where you want to be but cannot afford to dramatically change your lifestyle to get it, look no further. This Qualifying Law Degree course has been designed for students who want to combine their legal education with ongoing employment or personal commitments.
You will attend the same seminars as LLB (Hons) Law (full-time) students and gain the same skills, but the timetabling of your classes and the overall duration of the programme are flexible to meet your needs. With flexible study you have the choice of studying for four, five or six years. Your seminars may, for example, be scheduled on just one day or two afternoons per week. And you will have the opportunity in your first year to transfer onto full-time study if your availability changes.
