How to Apply for an Undergraduate Course

We offer a range of different undergraduate courses with different durations, speeds and methods of study. Usually the applications for each course open one year prior to the course start date.

When choosing your ideal course with us make sure you check where and when it is available before making your application.


ULaw Admissions Approach 2021

The University of Law is committed to continuing its support of students completing their secondary education who have had their studies disrupted by the global pandemic.

We are aware of the extraordinary challenges students are facing which is why in 2020 we launched 243 virtual events and interactive sessions designed to assist students with the move to Higher Education. When it came to exam results, we also introduced increased flexibility to accommodate the fluctuations in grades awarded to students whose studies were affected by COVID-19.

We can confirm that for our 2021 entrants we will be taking a similar approach and are delighted to announce a new schedule of virtual events to help students gain the experience and skills important for degree level study and beyond. These virtual events include Offer Holder Days, Real World Question Lectures and UniBuddy Livechat sessions among others and you can find out more about each below. We look forward to seeing you at an event soon and if you have any questions about us or your offer please do get in touch.

Work Experience Scheme

As an Offer Holder, students will be guaranteed a place on our 3-day virtual work experience scheme in July. You’ll join legal and business professionals from across sectors to gain an insight to what it is like in the workplace and take part in practical tasks to develop transferable skills for future internships, volunteering, and work opportunities.

Employability programme

Our employability sessions aim to build student confidence and advise students how to seize the opportunities in challenging times. Learn how to build a personal brand and show future employers.

Real World Question Lecture Series

Our tutors address the big questions in different professional areas, expanding your current knowledge and giving you an insight to university level study. Find out more about Today’s big questions for tomorrow’s professionals.

Law Booster Sessions

These sessions will develop the foundations of legal knowledge that will be expanded on when starting university. Sessions are delivered in partnership with Flipped Law.
