The LLB degree is completed in two four-term years (or in two years and three months for September entrants) and will help you to become a confident, competent lawyer, able to practise almost anywhere in the world.
All Buckingham LLB programmes (whether single honours or combined honours) lead to an English qualifying law degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (formerly the Law Society) and the Bar Council as qualifying its holder to be exempt from the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession. Some countries have additional requirements and if you are an overseas student you should confirm exactly what subjects you must take in order to qualify for your jurisdiction, we can usually accommodate these requirements.
As a result of studying for the Buckingham LLB you will become proficient in written and oral presentation, perfect your research techniques and learn to solve problems in a logical and structured way.
A second class honours degree or better guarantees you a place on our LLM programme in International and Commercial Law, increasing your specialist knowledge and enabling you to acquire two degrees in only three years.

At undergraduate level, we aim to have no more than five students in each tutorial, allowing you to develop your skills in a friendly environment. Your teachers get to know you personally and are on hand to support you with your studies.
The study of law requires intense discussion of the nature of problems, understanding different viewpoints and analysis to resolve them. This is best accomplished through the type of small group teaching in which the Buckingham Law School specialises and which makes us different from most other law schools.
Mooting and negotiating are compulsory elements in our Legal Skills module with the chance to attend other practical sessions and to enter external competitions.
We organise an annual Legal Workshop, in partnership with practitioners, which allows you to practise advising clients and to present short cases as though in court.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

A number of scholarships and bursaries are awarded annually by the University which vary from partial fee to full-fee awards. These are thanks to the donations received from supporters of the University, including the Audrey Osborn Trust, The Headley Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Brunner Family Trust, RM & D Gregory, Eranda Foundation and John Desborough Memorial Bequest.

To be eligible to apply for a scholarship you will need to have been offered a place to study at Buckingham. In the case of UCAS applications, if you are made an award you will need to select Buckingham as your firm acceptance choice.
Please note: these awards are made to new students only, current students are not eligible to apply.
