Access UCL is UCL’s contextual offer scheme for applicants from groups that are underrepresented at UCL.

UCL Faculty of Laws is committed to widening access to the LLB programme and this year we are excited to announce the revision of contextual grades from A*AA to BBB for students who meet the eligibility criteria.

The bold decision made by the Faculty is to ensure that academically talented students have the same access to education and to developing a legal career, regardless of their background.

Professor Piet Eeckhout, Dean of the UCL Laws, said

‘Our vision is of a faculty which provides a diverse, inclusive and deeply non-discriminatory home for both staff and students – competitive as well as caring to achieve excellence and to allow all its members to flourish.  We are committed to diversifying our community, in particular, supporting students from a variety of backgrounds to complete a degree in Law and develop a career in the legal profession.’

To be eligible for the scheme students must have attended a UK state school for their A levels and live in an area that has a high level of financial, social or economic deprivation, or low progression to higher education.
