The University of Law: The University of Exeter

Our partnership with the University of Exeter means that both our GDL and LPC are available in Exeter, bringing new opportunities for students in the South West.

The University of Law’s market-leading professional legal training courses, with tutors who are qualified lawyers, complements the outstanding student experience and stunning surroundings of the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus.

A World Heritage Site, Exeter offers a castle, plenty of museums and galleries, along with gardens, theatres and cinemas. With the sandy beaches of Exmouth only minutes by car or train, the Jurassic Coast offers an idyllic place for you to retreat to in your spare time

Postgraduate Diploma in Law (full-time/online)

Our new PGDL course has replaced the GDL and is a pathway into practice for non-law graduates who want to progress onto the SQE1 Preparation Course or LLM Legal Practice (SQE1&2) course to qualify as a solicitor, or the Bar Practice Course (BPC) to qualify as a barrister. Our PGDL provides you with the knowledge to make the transition into legal study with excellent levels of support and guidance from our experienced, professional tutors. Not only will you learn the academic law necessary for converting to law, but you will also focus on key skills and competences crucial for your development as a lawyer.

Legal Practice Course (full-time/part-time/online)

If you meet the entry requirements, we’re still confident that our LPC is the best preparation for entering legal practice by offering you the skills to succeed in the business world. Our client-focused LPC enables you to develop the commercial awareness, critical thinking and the necessary professional skills to prepare you for the challenges of working as a solicitor. In fact, 95% of our 2017/18 full-time UK LPC graduates secured work or further study within 15 months of successfully completing this course (based on Graduate Outcomes data). We’re so confident that you’ll succeed, that if you do not secure a job within nine months of successfully completing your course, you’ll get 100% of your fees back (terms and conditions apply). Study our LPC and you can gain an MSc in Law, Business and Management or an LLM in Professional Legal Practice at no extra cost. LPC Masters students may also be eligible for a postgraduate student loan.
