Law LLB (Hons) with Integrated Foundation year

Our foundation year course offers a year of integrated study at foundation level, offers an alternative entry route if you do not hold the required A-levels or equivalent qualifications, are changing career or returning to study.

You’ll develop the knowledge and skills needed to progress to one of our law degrees. As well as gaining the academic knowledge of the principles of law and business, you’ll explore the fundamentals of applied numeracy and data handling, life skills, wellbeing and responsible enterprise, and how to prepare yourself for studying your honours degree at Brighton. 

Taken over four years, or five years with an optional salaried placement, core learning provides practical skills in presentation, negotiation, oration, mooting and advocacy, and a thorough understanding of the English legal system. 

This degree is recognised by the Solicitors Regulation (SRA) Authority and the Bar Standards Boardand includes opportunities to obtain the required qualifying work experience. This includes the opportunity to provide free legal advice to members of the community, under the guidance of qualified solicitors, through our pro-bono Brighton Legal Clinic.

From 1 September 2021, the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority introduced the Solicitor’s Qualifying Examination (SQE) as the new route for qualification as a Solicitor. Our courses include SQE preparation and opportunities to achieve qualifying work experience to contribute to qualifying as a solicitor. As a qualifying law degree, you will also be able to progress directly to the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become a barrister.
