Five A* – C grades at GCSE including a minimum of grade 5/C in GCSE English Language
If you are interested in joining the College we will arrange a meeting with an experienced subject counsellor who will help you to choose courses that best suit your ambitions and achievements.
All entry requirement details are correct at the time of publication, September 2018, however, the College may need to make some changes by September 2019 in the light of student demand, staff availability and external factors beyond the College’s control.
The first year is split up into the following units:
You should study law because it is all around you! How did you get here? By Road? Speed Limits – set by law. Number of people allowed on the bus – set by law. Fare – set by law. Qualified driver – set by law…. and that is just one example.
Law is academic, challenging and practical and it is well respected by Universities as a good basis for studying anything as it teaches you a wide variety of skills, such as essay writing, research and analysis.
Three exams at the end of Year 2
If you choose to continue your studies of Law there are many courses in higher education to choose from, some specialise in Law whilst others offer a chance to combine subjects. A Level Law is also highly valued by employers, not just in the legal professions but in a whole range of careers in areas such as Commerce, Business and Management, The skills you will develop on this course, such as being able to see both sides of an argument or being able to distinguish the relevant from the irrelevant, will be of value to you throughout your life.
As an approximate guideline Law requires 4 -5 hours of independent study each week.
Course textbook and workbooks for each topic will be provided for you
This course is taught using traditional methods, although you will also take part in discussions and debates, a mock trial, and see how the law works through videos and internal research.
You will have lectures from guest speakers; take part in educational visits to the Magistrates’ Court and the Crown Court, The Crown Court in Lincoln Castle, master class sessions at the Universities of Hull & Nottingham as well as a visit to Hull Prison.
