UCL Laws Undergraduate Programmes

LLB Law with Another Legal System

After successfully completing the first year of the LLB programme (M100) students may apply to transfer to the Law with Another Legal System (Australia or Singapore) LLB. This four-year LLB programme enables students to spend the first two years of study at UCL, the third year studying law overseas in Australia or Singapore, and the fourth and final year completing their degree at UCL.

The degree is assessed on the basis of all four years of study, but the award of honours is based on the second and fourth years only. Students must pass all four years in order to be awarded the full degree, and will be assessed in their third year according to the regulations of the overseas university where they are studying. Tuition fees are paid to UCL for all four years of study and no tuition fees are paid to the overseas university.

Years 1, 2, and 4 of the programme are identical to years 1, 2, and 3 of the LLB M100 programme.

Prior to Departure
At the start of year 2, students on the Law LLB (M100) programme will be able to apply to transfer to Law with Another Legal System LLB. The successful students are provided with information to prepare for their year abroad concerning financial considerations, passports and visas, availability of private accommodation, local education authority documentation, travel arrangements, and insurance. The overseas university will also send information concerning term dates, registration, and enrolment. During year 2, students have opportunities to mix socially with fourth-year students who have completed their year abroad and with current visiting students from overseas universities.

Students spend year 3 at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. They select from courses approved by UCL, taking a minimum of 48 credits over two semesters.
