This course - accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB) - lets you gain a full Honours degree in just two years. It's ideal if you can commit to accelerated learning.

Course outline

Our Law (Two-year Fast-track) degree has all the advantages of the three-year Law degree, with the additional benefit that you'll graduate a year earlier.

In June of the first year, you'll complete a period of intensive learning from 9.30am to 5.00pm every day for two weeks. A further 60 credits are taught over the summer and you'll develop the skills you need to succeed with the distance-learning aspects of the course.

Final results are published in the September so you can continue your studies onto our highly-regarded Legal Practice Course or onto our taught LLM programme, which will allow you to specialise in a variety of areas.

You can also choose to take part in various competitions. These include mooting, interviewing and negotiation - all skills important in the workplace.

Graduate destinations

Many graduates from our LLB(Hons) awards progress to the professional stage of qualification as a lawyer by studying either the Legal Practice Course leading to qualification as a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course leading to qualification as a barrister. Some go on to qualify as chartered legal executives or as licensed conveyancers. Other graduates work in a variety of law and business related jobs including the Courts Service, human resource management, Customs and Excise, accounting and insolvency practice, company secretary, law enforcement and the civil service.

Entry requirements

Typical UCAS Offer: 320 BTEC: All applicants are individually assessed.

What our students say

"After graduating, I went on to complete the Bar Professional Training Course and I can honestly say that the solid grounding I gained during my time at Staffordshire University helped me to succeed. I was 'Called to the Bar' in November 2011 and, after completing a twelve-month pupilage at a Chamber in Essex, began practicising family law earlier this year."

James Holmes, Barrister and LLB(Hons) Law
