The University of Law celebrates its most successful year on record for student intake

The University of Law has announced its largest ever intake in its 144-year history, with its online campus seeing a 99% increase in the number of students enrolled this year.

The University has seen significant increases across its extensive course portfolio, making 2020 ULaw’s most successful year on record for student recruitment.

Whilst online courses have experienced the largest increases in enrolments, uptake onto ULaw’s undergraduate courses has also risen by 29 per cent across degrees covering both law and business.

Excitingly, the number of students accepted onto the BPC with ULaw has also notably increased by 38% year-on-year, which is the University’s largest cohort since 2007. Meanwhile, recruitment onto the GDL has increased by 23% and the LPC has had its largest intake since 2008 (+28% YoY).

Regionally, ULaw’s latest partnership with The University of Sheffield has made a strong start, with more than 120 students now recruited onto the University’s courses at this campus. This success has also been seen internationally at ULaw’s Hong Kong campus, which opened last year, where the student intake has doubled.

At the same time as delivering record student recruitment, ULaw has announced its portfolio of SQE programmes, through which the University will provide students with more choice and flexibility when it comes to qualifying as a solicitor under the new entry routes. This portfolio will offer students a wide range of options alongside new study manuals and a dedicated app, as ULaw further invests in its students.

Commenting on the most recent recruitment figures, Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, said: “There is no doubt that this year has been a challenging one but we have not wavered from our priority of delivering quality education and providing students with the tools they need to succeed. Knowing that record numbers of students are choosing to study with us and trusting us to put them on the path to exciting future careers is hugely encouraging.

“Our campuses are currently open and offering face to face teaching and our Study Guarantee means that should our campuses have to close we will deliver our programmes via online streaming or blended learning options.

“We will continue to invest in our students and put them first, be that through our SQE programmes, employability or range of student support services.”
