Thanks to an innovative collaboration with The University of Law, students can convert to law by studying the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and continue their journey to becoming a solicitor by studying the Legal Practice Course (LPC) after completing their LLB or GDL.
The University of Law will be responsible for providing the educational content of both programmes, which includes face-to-face teaching from qualified lawyers, tutor support and an award-winning employability programme to boost workplace skills. Students will also benefit from the campus experience offered at the Streatham Campus, which has recently received £380 million in investment and is known as one of the most beautiful campuses in the UK.
We can now also accept Tier 4 visas from international students who wish to study with us at Exeter. Further information on visa requirements can be found on our dedicated page.
