Entry requirements

Entrants to the UCL LLM must have 'a good 2.1 with evidence of 1st class ability' (or equivalent in other jurisdictions), and must provide evidence in their application of motivation, reasoning and analytical ability and communication skills. 'A good 2.1' shall normally mean an average of at least 65% (or equivalent in other jurisdictions) across all years of study, and ‘evidence of 1st class ability' shall normally mean at least one 1st class mark (or equivalent in other jurisdictions) over the entire degree. We may be willing to consider applicants who are close to, but do not meet these quantitative criteria, where space on the programme allows. Graduates whose first degree is not in law will be considered for admission if they have an average of 65% across all years of undergraduate study, plus an average of at least 65% plus at least one mark over 70% in the Graduate Diploma in Law recognised by UK professional bodies (achieved or in progress). Alternatively, graduates whose first degree is not in law will be considered if they have an average of 65% across all years of undergraduate study, plus have successfully completed studies on a Solicitors Qualifying Examination full time programme of at least 12 months duration usually resulting in a Master's qualification equivalent to a Merit classification with an average of 65% in all assessments including a pass in the SQE on first attempt.

If your education has not been conducted in the English language, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency.
