to make a total of 60 credits in this half of the Flexible Combined Honours degree final-year programme.

NOTE: The study of Law as part of a Flexible Combined Honours degree does not lead to professional accreditation by the Law Society or the Bar Council.

If you want professional accreditation, you can go on to study a Graduate Diploma in Law. This will then allow you to progress onto a Legal Practice Course to train as a solicitor or barrister. Such courses are available at Exeter, through the University of Law, and elsewhere.
