We understand there may be times where applicants do not achieve their expected grades or meet the advertised entry requirement for their chosen programme. At the University of Law this does not automatically mean an applicant will not be accepted. In these cases, we may carry out a further review of the application taking in to account any alternative achievements and merits outlined in the personal statement, supporting reference and any contextual information provided on the application. In some cases, this means we will accept applicants on lower tariff/entry grades than published. Where we are not able to offer you your chosen programme we will then consider you for a place on our foundation year programme. If we make an alternative offer we will notify you of this.

Contextual Admissions

As part of the University’s Access and Participation Plan the University has committed to the use of contextual admissions to assist students into Higher Education. Our approach is designed to support care experienced and estranged students with their progression to degree level study.

You may be eligible for a contextual offer if you have experienced any time in care during your life, or are an estranged student . It's important that you declare this on your UCAS form so that this can be taken into account as part of the admissions process.
