Our world-class LLB is of international standing. It has been the first step in the careers of thousands of practising lawyers around the world.
Develop a critical awareness of the common law legal tradition and apply problem-solving skills to a range of legal and non-legal settings.
Without the cost of moving to London, studying for your University of London degree anywhere in the world represents excellent value for money. However, there are additional sources of support depending on where you live and how you choose to study.
UK-based students may be entitled to apply for an undergraduate Student Loan or the Sir John Cass Scholarship. Equally, some of our approved local teaching institutions around the world offer discounts or scholarships for the face-to-face tuition they offer. (Check with your local institution for details.)

We set minimum basic computer requirements because your study resources are accessed via the Student Portal and it is vital that you can access this regularly. For this degree, you will also need Adobe Flash Player to view video material and a media player (such as VLC) to play video files.
