    Course Summary

    Winchester has been central to the British system of law for more than 1000 years. The same King Alfred whose name graces one of the university’s quarters established the English common law system when he ruled in Winchester in the medieval period.

    The University of Winchester’s LLB program is designed to give students a basic familiarity with all aspects of modern UK law and an understanding of the way its structures define, preserve and codify the British way of life. You’ll learn more than just the statutes, of course. You’ll explore concepts like legal negotiation, research, arbitration and the complex interaction of the courts and legislators who work together to define and codify the law.

    This is of course a Qualifying Law Degree, and an excellent first step towards practicing as either a Solicitor or a Barrister. Indeed, all you’ll need to do is complete your Training Contract after you graduate, and you’ll be ready.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

Your workload in years one and two will feature around 276 hours of teaching, learning and assessment, as well as approximately 924 hours of independent learning. Your final year is typically divided between 228 hours of teaching, learning and assessment with 972 hours of independent learning.

    Career Possiblities

    Graduates of Winchester’s LLB program will be able to seek a vocational training contract, which will in turn allow them to register as a solicitor or barrister and to practice law in that capacity. Other students will enter the workforce directly in the private and public sectors. Approximately 94% of graduates will find employment or enter into a training or degree program within 6 months of successfully completing the program.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 3 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned 112+ UCAS Tariff Points or the international equivalent. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall and at least 5.5 in writing would qualify, for example.
