Academically challenging and offering a fascinating range of topics to study, a degree in Law blends critical and theoretical thinking with a chance to really develop your independent learning.

There are plenty of activities to get involved in to build your career development and help you stand out to future employers, such as visits to employers and skills sessions where you’ll learn about negotiating and advocacy.

What will I study?

All students complete modules tailored to your chosen degree subjects.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed in each module. Assessment is both formative and summative, designed not simply to pass or fail students, but to help you build on our success and meet the requirements for entry to the the first year of a degree. Marks from the Foundation programme do not count towards the final degree, but they help the University assess your abilities in your chosen field of study.

You are assessed by a combination of examinations and coursework, which may include:

  • essays
  • reports
  • practical exercises
  • group and individual research projects
  • portfolios
  • oral presentations
  • seminar discussions
  • class tests
  • problem solving exercises

Through formative assessments, you'll receive feedback on your performance which will enable you to improve before the final summative assessments.
