University of Law at Exeter programmes

The University of Law and the University of Exeter

Students planning a career in law can complete both the academic stage of their training and the Legal Practice Course at the University of Exeter thanks to our innovative collaboration with the University of Law.

Launched in September 2015, non-law graduates can convert to law after completing a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course taught by ULaw at University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus. The Legal Practice Course, which is the next stage of the training for LLB and GDL graduates wishing to become solicitors, was introduced in September 2016.

At the present time these programmes are not open to students who require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK. As the programme provider, the University of Law is responsible for all visa queries relating to these courses. 

The University of Law will be responsible for providing the educational content of both programmes, which includes face-to-face teaching, tutor support and an employability programme to boost workplace skills. Students will 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.
