With growing demand in Europe for lawyers qualified in more than one jurisdiction, this four-year dual degree programme involves two years of study both at UCL and at the Universität zu Köln in Germany, leading to the award of a Bachelor of Laws degree from each institution.

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

The first two years of study for this programme are the same as for the three-year LLB degree, with these exceptions:
First-year students are required to take a module in German law, taught in German and including law, legal institutions and legal terminology. The department does not offer language tuition and students will be responsible for maintaining, or, if necessary, improving their linguistic ability in German to meet the academic demands of the degree.

Second-year students are required to take the European Legal Studies module, which includes tuition in German about the law and legal system of Germany.

The third and fourth years of study are spent at the Universität zu Köln studying towards the German Law degree in accordance with the host university's requirements for the degree programme. During this time, students will be registered as full-time undergraduates of the host university.

The German Law degree is not a fully qualifying law degree in Germany but students are given the opportunity to remain enrolled at the Universität zu Köln after completing the UCL LLB and Köln Bachelor of Laws in order to take the German First State Exam.

Please note, to be eligible to enrol on and satisfy all academic requirements for the German First State Exam, in the instance you are applying on the basis of UK A level qualifications, you must have studied mathematics or a natural science subject as one of your three A level subjects.

Students enrolled on this programme will not be permitted to transfer to the three-year LLB degree (subject to exceptional circumstances).
