Supporting your success
We pride ourselves on the level of student support we offer; thanks to our scholarships, Employability Service and Pro Bono programmes, we can help talented students from all backgrounds succeed. We’re committed to helping the brightest minds achieve their career ambitions, whatever their background. As part of our ongoing dedication to giving students every possible opportunity to succeed, we have a large and generous scholarship programme, with over £2million available to support students through their studies.
The University of Law’s dedicated Employability Service gives you access to work experience, pro bono opportunities and legal vacancies from before you apply until after you graduate. The result is excellent employability statistics: 95% of our 2017/18 full-time, UK, LPC graduates have secured work or further study within fifteen months of successfully completing this course, based on Graduate Outcomes data. As well as, 59% of our full-time UK/EEA Bar Practice Course students graduating in 2018 secured a pupillage (based on student data collated September 2020).
