Campus Transfer

Have you started your degree at another university, but your personal circumstances have changed and you need to study online or closer to home? Or did you start a standard law degree and now want to add a specialism to stand out from the crowd? Here at The University of Law we are always happy to welcome transfer students and want to make sure you get all the support you need in the process.

What does transferring university mean?

By transferring university you are essentially taking what you have achieved with your first university to a second one. We may recognise all of your achievements with the first university or just some of them, depending on what differences there might be between the course you studied and what you want to study with us. This is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Why transfer to The University of Law?

Choose from the following campuses at which to study our LLB (Hons) Law degree: Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, London Bloomsbury, Manchester and Nottingham.
Choose from a wide range of courses, some running 2 years, others 3 years or 4 years with a Foundation Year.

We offer 3, 4 and 6 year options, allowing you to fix your studies around your commitments. We also offer a 4.5 year January start online LLB (Hons) Law course.

We offer a range of undergraduate courses in:

Truly professional undergraduate degrees

Our undergraduate degrees are designed to be the most relevant and rounded degree level education available to help you achieve your career ambitions.

For Law, over 90% of our tutors are qualified lawyers so you will learn how to apply law in practice and develop the transferable skills demanded by employers. Whether you're considering a career in law or the wider commercial world, we can help you achieve your ambitions.

For Business, all of our tutors have commercial experience.


Studying our LLB on the 3 year, 4 year with Foundation Year, or via any of our online LLB programmes (assuming you select certain options) will mean you are prepared for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1) or to progress onto our Bar Practice Course (if you wish to qualify as a barrister).

What's the next steps?

If you’ve already successfully completed a course - or courses - at another institution then you can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), so that you don’t have to repeat a module you have already successfully completed.

To transfer you will need to submit an application for the course you wish to study. Within the application you will be given the opportunity to let us know whether you intend to apply for RPL.
