The course

LLB Law with Integrated Foundation Year

This course is available to Home (UK) students and students from the EU who meet the English Language requirements.

Our Integrated Foundation Year for LLB Law is a thorough, skills-building course that will give you everything you need to start your studies with confidence. 

Our Foundation Year sets you up so that you’re ready to take on a study of Law - providing you with opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of how to get started this fascinating subject at university. All Foundation Year students take ‘Global Perspectives’ and other foundation course modules, then two subject-based modules provide an introduction to the study of law, giving you the critical skills to explore a range of legal issues within identified contemporary debates in the discipline. Once you have completed your Foundation year, you will normally progress onto the full degree course, LLB Law.

Our Department of Law and Criminology has a reputation for high-quality research and teaching. Whilst studying Law at Royal Holloway you will explore the fundamental principles of justice, equity and equality within the framework of English and European law. This degree is for anyone looking to start a career in law, whether as a barrister or a solicitor, it is also for those who are interested in the legal system and the ways in which laws are made and upheld. You will be equipped with a wide range of transferable skills which are highly sought after by employers in a wide variety of fields.

You will consider the different laws which apply to different legal problems within the legal system. This will enable to understand how the law regulates agreements between individuals and the relationship between the individual and the state. In addition to acquiring invaluable legal skills in research and oral presentation, you will have the opportunity to choose from a range of subjects in fields such as family law, medical law, company law and international law along with criminology options in terrorism, sentencing and penal policy and gender and crime.

Our balanced approach to research and teaching guarantees high-quality teaching from subject leaders, cutting edge materials and intellectually challenging debates. You will receive individual attention and flexibility to acquire expertise within a specialist field.

In addition to lectures and seminars, as new students, you will have a Personal Tutor who will work with you on any issues and we place great emphasis on continuous feedback both orally and in writing.

  • A degree in Law which is qualifying for regulatory purposes in some instances
  • Perfect for those students wishing to benefit from academic and skills-based training in Law
  • Benefit from a diverse range of optional modules in law and also other related disciplines such as criminology, sociology and forensic psychology
  • Develop skills to evaluate legal developments, analyse legal texts and develop independent thinking.
  • Develop key legal research and communication skills.

For students starting their LLB degree after 21 September 2021, the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is the new way to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. Doing the SQE provides more flexibility in how you train to become a solicitor and we have secured an agreement for our students with a provider of the training needed after your degree, subject to terms and conditions. For students wishing to qualify as a barrister, the Common Protocol on legal education agreed between the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and the Bar Standards Board recognises Royal Holloway as a qualifying law degree provider, which means that on successful completion of this course you will have fulfilled the academic stage of training to become a barrister.

From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as we can.
