Undergraduate Year One in Top 30 UK universities normally require 544 to 555 in HKDSE, with subject-specific requirement depending on your choices of programmes. If students fall short of such requirement, they can progress through International Year One or University Foundation Courses. These programmes accept entry at 433 to 322 in HKDSE and enable qualified students to progress onto Year 2 and Year 1 of an undergraduate programme in Top 30 UK universities respectively. Students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, however, will benefit from the 1-Year A-levels which also allows them to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.

In the seminar, our education consultants will introduce these four options for HKDSE students. Content includes university options, subject options, entry requirements, plus the procedures and important dates of UCAS.

Content Highlights

Virtual Seminar: Studying Law in the UK (Queen Mary, University of London)

Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or above (Seminar)
Location: British United
Ranked the 30th in the World for Law (QS 2020)

Seminar Content

In the Seminar, a Lecturer from Queen Mary Law School will introduce the Law degrees in Queen Mary, University of London, covering areas such as course structure & content, entry requirement, placement & student exchange opportunities, exams & other assessments, graduate prospects and more!

  • How do you become a Lawyer in the UK? The existing regulations and future changes: Under existing regulations, students who would like to become a lawyer in the UK are required to complete a professional training course at postgraduate level – the Legal Practice Course (LPC) if you’d like to become a solicitor, or the Bar Practice Course (BPC) if you’d like to become a barrister. After that, trainee lawyers will go on to complete a training contract (or pupillage for barristers) in a law firm, before they can fully qualify as a practising lawyer.

    Under new regulations (to be implemented in September 2021), students who would like to become a Solicitor will have to pass the brand new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) (respective but smaller changes to the training route for Barristers were introduced in 2020). Students starting their undergraduate law degrees will in theory be eligible for both new and existing training routes, but it’s expected that the new route will become the most common practice by the time students graduate!

    In this section, the Lecturer will explain the existing regulations in the UK and the changes proposed by the authorities, to help students and parents make plans for future studies.

  • Specialisms in law: In addition to the division of solicitors and barristers, there are also a range of specialisms (ie. commercial law, human rights law, intellectual properties, etc) and students will have the opportunities to study some of these specialisms via elective modules in their law degrees. Is it a good idea to learn a bit of everything? Or is it better to focus on a smaller selection of specialisms? How will your choices at undergraduate level affect your career and future studies?
  • The Benefits of a Placement Year: Queen Mary School of Law offers a 3-year standard law degree, as well as the 4-year LLB (Hons) Law in Practice, in which students will spend their third year in paid work placements at Reed Smith LLP, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP, or Bindmans LLP. Why is it worthwhile spending an extra year on placement? How might it increase your chances of securing a training contract, after you’ve completed your postgraduate training?
  • Study exchange with HKU Law School: If you study the 4-Year LLB (Hons) Global Law in Queen Mary, University of London, you will have the opportunities to study in HKU Law School in the third year of your degree.
  • Programme introduction: At the end of the Seminar, the Lecturer will briefly introduce the law programmes available in Queen Mary, University of London, covering areas such as course structure & content, entry requirement, placement & student exchange opportunities, exams & other assessments, graduate prospects and more.
