About Law with International Foundation Year for International Students at University of Reading

Want to study law at a British university but don't have the correct qualifications?

Subject to successful completion of the International Foundation Year, you'll be guaranteed a place on the three-year LLB law course at Reading in September of the same year.

The foundation year will equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills you need to cope with the demands of undergraduate study.

Through the provision of high-quality teaching that is sympathetic to the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds, the IFP programme will equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills you need to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. Students who qualify to progress from the foundation year (Part 0) will automatically be entered into Part One of LLB Law.

Students can seek a single visa for the duration of the four-year course.

In addition to gaining legal knowledge, the LLB Law programme will develop your ability to: consider and evaluate issues, select relevant materials and produce arguments encompassing policy, existing practice and knowledge, theorise and critique legal concepts and the law itself.

The degree aims to provide coverage of the core areas of English law – including public and private law – while also allowing you the flexibility to focus on your own interests. You can view optional modules for Year 1 and Year 2 in the "What will you study?" section of this page.

Placement Opportunities

You are encouraged to undertake placements during your vacations. Students find and secure placements independently, but with the support of the University.
