Studying at a Law School in the UK
Every year over 500 Canadian students choose to leave Canada and join a UK law school. SI-UK has over 10 years of experience helping international students apply to UK Law Schools and is kept up to date on the latest updates, scholarships and rankings. Studying at law school in the UK is similar to Canada as Canadian law is based on common law which originated in the UK. Canadian and American students have the choice of studying a qualifying law degree at a wide range of UK Universities immediately after high school or after they have completed an undergraduate degree. SI-UK helps Canadian students apply to any Law school in the UK. Our service is free of charge so don't apply alone, contact one of our consultants today so we can assess your transcripts and advise which law school and route is best for you!
Students who already have a degree from Canada or the US, can apply for a 2 year fast track graduate entry programme in the UK. These degrees have varying titles in the UK for example LLB Senior Status or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). This degree is particularly popular with Canadians as it allows graduates to qualify with a law degree in only 2 years. Students can also study a 3 year LLB Law degree straight after high school, a less intense option than the fast track.
There are a range of scholarships available for Canadian students applying to study at a law school in the UK ranging from £1,000 to £2,000.
