The University of Law is committed to supporting care experienced students during their journey into higher education and throughout their studies. We realise that enrolling at university can be nerve-wracking and we’re here to support all students during transition, enrolment and right through to graduation.
We offer tailored support to any student who has spent any time in local authority care, not just those that are defined by the more restricted legal definition.
We offer outreach activities for care experienced students such as campus visits and attendance at careers events. We also offer individual campus tours for any students interested in studying at one of our campuses.
We have a contextual admissions process in place for care experienced undergraduate students. If an applicant for one of our UG courses (excluding our degrees with foundation years) either ticks the ‘care leaver’ box in the UCAS form and/or details their experience in care in their personal statement we will make them a contextual offer of one grade lower than the standard offer for that course.
The University of Law’s unique teaching model is designed to provide students with a professional, contemporary and supportive learning environment with plenty of practical, interactive engagement. That's why we keep our contact hours high and our teaching groups small.
Pre-entry, students also have access to our named contact, Helena Bowring, for support and advice
Study at one of our 14 locations across the UK, online, or at one of our International campuses in Hong Kong and Berlin. All campuses are well-equipped, and are close to thriving commercial hubs, leading law firms and transport links.https://www.law.ac.uk/locations/
