Type: In-Person Seminar
Target: F.4 or above (Seminar)
Location: British United / Attend Virtually
Accepts applications from children of BN(O) and students holding the HKSAR passport

Studying GCE A-levels in a State Sixth Form College is the cheapest option in sixth-form, where tuition and accommodation expenses can start at around HKD$170,000 every year. The GCE A-levels qualifications also have the advantage, which reserves the possibility for students to apply to universities in Hong Kong via the Non-Jupas route. If the Non-Jupas application were successful, your overall education expenses would be much smaller than studying in a university in the UK!

In the seminar, John Leggott College will introduce you aspects of the study life in a state sixth form college, while British United will complement the discussion with an analysis of Admission Data via the Non-Jupas route:

From Paralegal to Solicitor: An Admissions Talk in Law by The University of Law

From Paralegal to Solicitor: An Admissions Talk in Law by The University of Law

Type: Seminar
Target: HKDSE, GCE A-levels Graduates, University Students and Working Adults - especially suitable for current Paralegals
Location: British United / Attend Virtually

Seminar Theme

With the implementation of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) in the 2021/22 academic year, the solicitor qualifying framework in the UK is replaced by a more examination-based regime. Graduates who would like to qualify as a solicitor will now need to pass the SQE, and obtain two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE).

Under the new system, requirements of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) are slightly relaxed, which can now include time spent on placement during a law degree, working as a paralegal and a few other circumstances. Such a change means that, for paralegals with some experience, upgrading themselves as a solicitor is now much less difficult. For prospective law students – especially those who might hesitate for the uncertainties of securing a Training Contract – a dead-end in their pursuit to become a lawyer has also become less likely!

Seminar Content

Wing Wong

International Student Recruitment Manager, The University of Law

In the Admissions Talk, admission representative from the University of Law will provide an overview of the SQE system, so that students and parents can understand the implications to their planning. The University will also introduce the profession of Paralegal and the new courses designed to prepare students for the SQE. The Admissions Talk is therefore suitable for current Paralegals, as well as school students and their parents who are considering studying law in the future.

Understanding the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE)

On the surface, the framework is simple enough – There are two parts of the SQE (namely SQE1 and SQE2). Passed them and obtained two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE), you qualify as a solicitor in the UK. But in practice, what skills and abilibites are SQE1 and SQE2 testing respectively? Would it mainly be multiple-choice questions, or would it also involve longer form questions too? And how important is the oral component?

Introducing the Paralegals: Who are they? What do they normally do? How does the career prospect look like?

While they’re not lawyers, Paralegal assumes a certain professional status and require solid knowledge in law to excel. In a law firm, Paralegals are involved in legal research, drafting and many more areas. Experienced Paralegals can earn up to HK$465,000 or £55,000 a year! While many law firms would employ law graduates as Paralegals, how is the market actually like in Hong Kong and in the UK?

Understanding the Requirements of QWE: Time spent on placement during a law degree and working as a paralegal now count towards QWE too!

Graduates seeking to qualify as a solicitor will need to pass the SQE, and obtain two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE). While these work experience can be completed in the UK and overseas (including Hong Kong), what other conditions do these have to meet before it can be included as QWE?

Course Introduction

Admission representative from the University of Law will provide details about the following postgraduate courses, covering areas such as course structure, entry requirements, tuition fees, study locations and the steps it takes after each course to qualify as a lawyer.

UK University & Pathways Seminar

Type: In-Person Seminar
Target: F.4 or above
Location: British United / Attend Virtually

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 222 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

  • How does UCAS work? What are the important dates?
  • How to make best use of the five application quotas in your UCAS application?
  • Is it possible to have the sixth and the seventh quota?
  • Tips on writing a winning personal statement.
  • English Requirements and Different Types of IELTS: What’s IELTS for UKVI (Academic)?
  • Options of university and academic disciplines in pathway programmes.
  • University Foundation Courses that accept applications from F.5 students.
  • The option of One-Year A-levels and a brief analysis of Non-Jupas admission data.

International Student Recruitment Manager, The University of Law

With the implementation of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) in the 2021/22 academic year, the solicitor qualifying framework in the UK is replaced by a more examination-based regime. Graduates who would like to qualify as a solicitor will now need to pass the SQE, and obtain two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE). Under the new system, requirements of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) are slightly relaxed, which can now include time spent on placement during a law degree, working as a paralegal and a few other circumstances.

In the initial years of the implementation of the SQE, a transitional arrangement is open to students who have started their law degrees (like LLB, GDL, etc) in September 2021 or before, under which the option of studying the Legal Practice Course (LPC) remains open to them!

In this special advisory session, the admissions representative from The University of Law will provide individual advices for existing law students, to help them pick the best training route.

• (2-Year & 3-Year Programmes)

Founded in 1876, the University of Law has an excellent and unique reputation in professional legal training in the UK. In its early years, it was the lawyer training school of the Law Society of England and Wales, and later became the first private university that was granted degree-awarding power by the UK government! Today, the University of Law is one of the most established law schools in the UK and an education partner of the leading global law firms such as Clifford Chance and Linklaters, providing a bespoke master’s degree for Clifford Chance and Linklaters.

Key Postgraduate & Undergraduate Programmes (designed for the SQE framework)

With the implementation of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) in the 2021/22 academic year, the solicitor qualifying framework in the UK is replaced by a more examination-based regime. Graduates who would like to qualify as a solicitor will now need to pass the SQE, and obtain two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE):

Undergraduate + Passing the SQE + Obtaining Two Years of QWE

Under the new system, requirements of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) are sligtly relaxed, which can now include time spent on placement during a law degree, working as a paralegal and a few other circumstances. Such a change means that, for paralegals with some experience, upgrading themselves as a solicitor is now much less difficult. For prospective law students – especially those who might hesitate for the uncertainties of securing a Training Contract – a dead-end in their pursuit to become a lawyer has also become less likely!

University for the Creative Arts (UCA) is a specialist art university in the UK, which teaches in diverse areas of visual arts (such as Animation, Architecture, Fashion Design, Film Production, Interior Design, Photography and more), with new ventures into new media such as Computer Games Design, Creative Coding & Technology.

University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has four main campuses located in cities in the south of England. With London within reach of a 30- to 60-minute train ride, students enjoy the great exposure to exhibitions and galleries in London, without the burden of London’s cost of living!

  • UCA Canterbury – Just an easy one-hour train journey from London and home to three universities, the historic city of Canterbury is a superb destination for international students! Fine Art, Architecture, Interior Architecture are particularly notable courses in UCA Canterbury. Other visual art courses include Illustration & Animation, Graphic Design, Creative Computing and many more!
  • UCA Epsom – Epsom is home to the unique UCA Business School for the Creative Industries, which as its name suggests offers a range of business courses tailormade for the creative industries, such as Advertising, Digital Marketing, Event & Promotion Management, Business Management and more. For creative courses, there are the options of Fashion Design, Fashion Promotion as well as Graphic Design. With access to creative workshops and studios, UCA Epsom is likely to be especially attractive for business-minded students with a strong passion for the creative industries, but might not want to pursue a career as a full-time artist or creator. You can perhaps be a marketer with strong creative skills instead!
  • UCA Farnham – Located in the traditional craft town of Farnham, UCA Farnham is the largest campus in terms of student population and course portfolio! These include a range of craft-based courses such as Fine Art, Ceramics & Glass, Textile Design, Jewellery & Silversmithing and more. There are also a wide range of visual art courses like Film Production, Animation, Digital Media, Games Arts & Technology, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Architecture, as well as Music Composition & Technology and an Acting course designed for the screen. Such wide range of courses is also why UCA Farnham is where the International Art Foundation is based – to allow students to get a taste of the widest range of specialisms!
  • UCA Rochester – Perched high on a hill and with a stunning view of river Medway, UCA Rochester is the fashion campus of UCA. Course options include Fashion Design, as well as specialist courses like Fashion Textiles which has a strong focus on modern techniques, and Fashion Atelier which requires exceptional tailoring skills. Apart from design courses, there is a full range of fashion-related courses such as Fashion Image & Styling, Fashion Photography and Make-up & Hair.

Granted full university status in 2008, University for the Creative Arts (UCA) was formed with a merger between a few historical art schools with over 160 years of teaching experience. Over the years UCA graduates have worked in different sectors of the creative industries and have achieved international acclaim. They include a number of Oscar-winning animators, film director Gareth Edwards (director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Godzilla), illustrator Martin Handford (creator of Where’s Wally?), animation artist Mark Baker (creator of Peppa Pig), jewellery designer Stephen Webster, as well as fashion designer Karen Millen.

Located in central Norwich, East of England, Norwich University of the Arts was established in 1845 and is now one of UK’s seven specialist art universities. While traditionally known for Fine Art, the University is also running forward-looking digital media programmes on VFX, User Experience Design, as well as Games Design:

Employability is at the heart of teaching in Norwich University of the Arts, and it’s recognized by industry for providing exceptional training for work-ready graduates. Starting from Year 2 of an undergraduate degree, there are opportunities for work placement and for students to work on live briefs. They are also encouraged to submit their work to open competitions.

Norwich University of the Arts is a creative community of 2700 students lead by a teaching staff who are themselves practicing artists and designers. The majority of its students are British and only 10% come from overseas. Notable alumni include Stuart Craig (Production Designer on Harry Potter film series), Brian Bolland (Graphic Novel Artist on Batman comics) and Keith Chapman (Creator of Bob the Builder).

In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, Norwich University of the Arts also provides foundation programmes in the form of a Year 0. Designed for students whose grades fall slightly short of the requirements of undergraduate year one, a Year 0 is an additional year attached to a standard 3-year undergraduate degree (students will be issued a visa that covers the whole 4-year period). Compared with a broad-learning art foundation, in the Year 0 students will focus on modules directly relevant to their art & design specialisms and be better prepared for their undergraduate degrees!
