We aim to provide a well-rounded, thorough learning experience which gives you a solid foundation in law and legal practice. You will also acquire transferable skills that aim to prepare you for a range of other careers.
Our teaching methods
You will learn through a combination of lectures, small group tutorials, seminars and independent study sessions.
Staff use a variety of innovative teaching techniques to engage and motivate students, including research-led teaching, where you will explore the cutting-edge legal and policy issues in each area of law with our world-renowned academics.
Alongside your academic study, we offer an enviable range of co-curricular activities to help you develop both personally and professionally.
Co-curricular activities are all the additional exercises that you are encouraged to participate in. They include pro bono work, mooting, negotiation, mediation, and client interviewing competitions.
Work experience programme
Our dedicated programme provides you with opportunities to explore potential career paths, gain valuable practical insight, and strengthen your future job applications.
In the past, students have completed work experience with Thames Valley and City law firms (London), barristers, government agencies, not-for-profit organisations, and in-house legal counsel.
A work experience bursary is available to ensure placements are accessible to everyone.
Broaden your horizons
Travel and exploration are not only incredible ways to complement your studies but also to help you grow and develop as an individual. We encourage all our students to visit other places, immerse themselves in different cultures, and to have memorable experiences during their degree.
Each year, with the very generous support of alumni donors, the European Law Students' Association (ELSA) organise and undertake a visit to a European city.
Students, accompanied by staff, visit key European institutions, for example, the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission.
Depending on your course, you could spend two weeks, a term, or an academic year abroad. This can be part of a standard three-year degree, an extended four-year degree, or a shorter length of time such as a summer school.
We’ll help you decide where to go and for how long, guide you through the application process, and support you when you’re abroad.
