Is the Course for me?

If you are aged 19 or over and have an interest in studying Law at university then this is the right course for you.

You'll be studying for 12 hours per week, over three days each week during the academic year. If you complete this course successfully, then the results can lead you straight to university.

Access courses are designed for people who have been out of education for a period of time. They enable people to return to college, before going on to study at higher levels, gaining full-time employment, or simply satisfying their passion for learning.

What is involved?

This course will give you a thorough grounding in the policies, theories and practice of law. You will also undertake some core skills units, to help you study at degree level.


Most students progress into Higher Education from this course and go on to study law based subjects at university. The Access to Law programme is a level 3 course and is equivalent to A-levels.
You may also wish to go into employment as that is another option.

You will receive advice and guidance as you progress during the course, as well as help with your UCAS application if required.

Course Requirements

If you have an up to date level 2 course (obtained within the last three years) and evidence of level 2 literacy and numeracy then you will be able to take part on the course.

However, as most of our students have been out of education for the last few years, every student is given an intial assessment in literacy and numeracy which will act as evidence for entry. You will take part in these tests before you begin and it is required that you achieve level 2 standards in both of them.

If you do not meet the criteria then the college has a range of alternative programmes open to you.
