Notarial Practice Course

The notarial profession in England and Wales is regulated by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury, which appoints new notaries. All prospective notaries must satisfy training requirements in accordance with the Notaries (Qualification) Rules 1998, issued by the Faculty Office.

Information about Notaries, including a full information pack on the qualification requirements and appointment procedures and the application form for the Certificate of Exemption from the academic stage of qualification required prior to enrolment on the Postgraduate stage of training is available from the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury:

The UCL Notarial Practice programme is designed to enable legally qualified applicants to fulfil the professional stage of these training requirements.

This two-year distance learning programme will begin in September each year.

Applicants to the programme should already be in receipt of or have made an application for their Certificate of Exemption from the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Applications for the 2015-17 Course open in November 2014
