As a student, you’ll be welcomed as part of a tight, friendly and innovative community. There are few better starting points for a career in this constantly moving and challenging sector. Substantial numbers of law graduates enter the legal profession either immediately after professional training or a few years later. Find out more about the occupations you can follow with a law degree.
If you have a degree and wish to continue with postgraduate study, we offer a range of Master's degrees. For those students with a qualifying law degree or equivalent we also offer the Legal Practice Course (LPC). This can be studied full or part-time and provides graduates who have completed the academic stage of legal training or Fellows of the Institute of Legal Executives with the professional, vocational stage of training as a solicitor.
