From 2015, first-year Law is not available through FCH.

The University of Exeter Law School has made some major changes to its curriculum and as a consequence is not able to offer Law as part of a Flexible Combined Honours degree programme.

First year programme (2014/15) - Flexible Combined Honours

The annual legal service, Exeter CathedralOne compulsory Law module is taken during the first year:

  • Legal Foundations - LAW1022 (15 credits)

and modules chosen from those available, e.g.:

  • Advocay and Negotiation - LAW1017 (15 credits)
  • Constitutional and Administrative Law - LAW1035 (30 credits)
  • Criminal Law - LAW1003 (30 credits)
  • Law of Contract - LAW1004 (30 credits)

for this part of the Flexible Combined Honours degree first-year programme.

If you wish to complete the seven core foundation Law modules required for professional accreditation, have achieved a 2:2 or better and have studied at least three of the seven core modules, you can apply to study for a fourth year BA Law degree at Exeter. This degree will enable you to apply to the relevant professional body for exemption from the appropriate academic stage of training. This course may have funding implications for you though, as local education authorities (LEAs) may not pay the fees as it is regarded as a second undergraduate degree.

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.
