    Description

    Kent Law School is recognised as one of the leading law schools in the UK. It has an international reputation both for its research and for the high quality, innovative, critical and socio-legal education that it provides. It boasts a carefully designed and wide-ranging curriculum, an institutional commitment to teaching excellence, as well as extensive international links. In addition to offering an active and highly successful mooting programme, the Law School also houses a multi-award winning Law Clinic which offers students an unparalleled opportunity to practise law with the support and supervision of qualified solicitors, representing real clients in real cases.

    In short, Kent Law School enables students to develop not only their legal knowledge but their intellectual, analytical and practical skills, ensuring that they have the academic and professional tools required for a successful career not only in law but in other professional contexts.

    The Kent electronic law library, Lawlinks, is one of the best in the UK. All modules have their own websites and many of the lectures are recorded when given live and made available as MP3 files.

    If you already have or will have a degree in another subject, you can apply for our Senior Status' programme. This allows you to complete the LLB in two years rather than three.

    Teaching and assessment

    The latest review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) of the Kent Law School concluded that the School provides excellent learning opportunities for its students'.

    Kent Law School emphasises research-led teaching which means that the modules taught are at the leading edge of new legal and policy developments. You are taught by as many of our leading researchers as possible. Small, weekly seminar-group teaching in all of our core modules actively encourages you to take part.

    Most modules are assessed by end-of-year examinations and continuous assessment, the ratio varying from module to module. Some modules include an optional research-based dissertation that counts for 45% or, in some cases, 100% of the final mark. In Clinical Legal Studies, the final mark is based on your client file and a dissertation.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
