What is the minimum requirement for admission?

Please refer to the page “Admissions Criteria in the Admissions tab” and scroll down to the “Entrance Requirements” of the University of London LLB (Hons) Programme or the CertHE Common Law Leading to LLB (Hons) University of London Programme.

How long does it take to confirm a student’s registration/admission with the University?

What is the immediate payment requirement?

A student is required to pay the “Application Handling Fee” and the “Admission Fee” for the Institute.

What happens to my initial financial deposits if my application is rejected?

The “Application Handling Fee” paid to the University of London is non-refundable. If the University refuses a student’s application all other payments (made to the Institute) are refunded. However, if a student is accepted by the University but decides not to continue with his LLB degree, then his “Security Deposit” is refunded but not the “Admission Fee” or the “Tuition Fee” for the term.

How difficult is the degree?

The degree is fairly difficult for students who are not in the habit of reading textbooks. The LLB degree not only requires a thorough reading of the essential texts, but also requires hard-work, dedication, commitment, and above all, interest in the degree. Passing the degree may not be difficult but a student needs to be fully focused to attain a higher placement.

A license can be obtained after a law graduate from the University of London passes the Special Equivalence Examination conducted by the HEC as well as the Law GAT examination.

Where else can I practice with the LLB degree?

The LLB degree is recognized worldwide as a legal graduate degree. The structure of this degree is especially suitable for countries with a “common law” legal framework.

How long does it take to complete my LLM/Bar at law?

Normally, an LLM takes from 9 to 12 months, while the Bar at Law takes 9 months to complete.
