Following this course, we recommend:
Students will be required to complete a pre-study online diagnostic test to check their understanding of the key foundational law subjects. This should be completed within 24 hours of the start date. We use diagnostic testing to assess each student’s level of black letter law knowledge for SQE1.
This course has two modules. Ethics and Professional Conduct will be taught throughout the course.
**Students will be expected to have studied these subjects before starting the SQE1 Preparation Course. These subjects will not be taught, but students will have opportunities to revise the law content throughout this course. These subjects are covered in our SQE Law Essentials course.
There are four to five units per week throughout the course (two units per week on the part-time course). Each unit follows our unique dynamic learning model: Prepare, Engage, Consolidate (PEC).
Prepare. You will spend approximately seven hours per unit preparing, using the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE) where all resources will be accessible. The Prepare stage includes a rich mixture of learning activities, including study manuals, multi-media, preparatory tasks, and quizzes.
Engage. The Engage stage involves a mixture of online breakout rooms/live classes and group sessions where students will be asked to apply the knowledge or practice the skill they have acquired in the Prepare. These activities should take approximately two hours per unit to complete. Students will receive online individual and group tutor feedback and support during the Engage stage. There will also be live sessions where students will be able to receive feedback on mock tests and ask questions.
Consolidate. You will complete the Consolidate stage using our VLE. This stage involves a mixture of short consolidation learning activities and weekly revision tests on practice and law subjects using our intelligent revision app.
There will be regular mock assessments throughout the course, along with opportunities to review your progress and ask questions of your subject expert tutors in group review sessions.
You can also study this course at one of our campuses across the UK. If you’re looking for a more traditional university experience, with more tutor contact time, why not consider studying on campus?
