Students from  Bangladesh 

We offer a range of professional qualifications that can help towards qualifying as a lawyer in England and Wales, as well as enhance your career opportunities in Bangladesh. 

Study our undergraduate LL.B (Hons) Law degree 

At The University of Law, we believe our undergraduate students should understand how the law is applied in a real-world context, as well as being challenged academically. Therefore our law degrees are very different to the traditional LL.B. They are based on an innovative approach to learning that combines academic rigour with practical legal skills in a business- like environment. The result is the most relevant and rounded degree-level education available. You can study our LL.B over two or three-years, further information is available on our website at: law.ac.uk/undergraduate 
If you already hold a non-law degree you can study our conversion course the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), which can be completed full-time over a ten month period. 

Study our BPTC to become a barrister, or to enhance your legal career in Bangladesh 
To ensure you receive the most relevant training to become a barrister, this course is uniquely structured to mirror a barrister’s real-life experience of the litigation process. You will gain essential commercial awareness, learn how to apply your legal skills in practice and receive unparalleled opportunities to master your advocacy skills. 

Please note: all BPTC students must pass the Bar Course Aptitude Test before starting the course. Please check our website for full details on this, and all entry requirements. For 2017 course entry, we’re running a selection process which includes an interview, with oral and written advocacy tests.
