Introduction

The LLB (Hons) Law with International Business with Foundation Year is a 4-year law degree. It is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the legal or wider commercial sector. The LLB has a practical focus on employability integrated into the course. There is a high level of face-to-face tuition. The law modules are delivered predominantly by professionally qualified lawyers. Students will study the key legal topics and related skills that are critical for the modern law student but also have a choice of options. The course is delivered over two semesters per academic year. The students study six modules per year.

The degree program is designed so that the Foundation Year provides an underpinning year, incorporating both academic and legal/professional related learning. Applicants need to improve their knowledge and understanding of law along with the necessary skills needed to participate in undergraduate law programs at levels 4, 5, and 6. Students will develop the critical study and legal skills required to progress onto the next stage of the degree and ultimately that will equip them for further study or employment.

This introductory year focuses on developing the key skills required to study at the degree level. You will study six modules and on successful completion progress onto any of our three-year degrees. The modules covered will initially enhance your communication skills, digital and information literacy, and ability to think critically. You then have the added flexibility of switching your degree program if another discipline captures your interest, subject to availability and entry requirements.
