Q&A Archive

These were the questions asked during the Law Virtual Open Day live event.
Busola asked:

Is it unlikely to get an unconditional if you got lower than the 7A*-A’s but exceeded the entry requirements for the course

Hannah, Admissions and Recruitment Coordinator replied:

Hi Busola

Thanks for your question. If you have completed your A Levels (or equivalent qualifications) and your obtained grades exceed our entry requirements, you would receive an unconditional offer from us.

If you are still studying towards your A Levels and it is your predicted grades that exceed our entry requirements, we would need to look back on your academic record and you would need to have achieved the 7 A*-As at GCSE.


Steven asked:

Would it be ideal for an applicant who had undertaken the EPQ for the focus to be law-related? If so, are there any particular subject areas which would be favourable?

David replied:

Hi Steven,

It doesn’t have to be related to law for the reduced offer of AAB, though obviously choosing a law based subject does demonstrate a strong interest in studying law at university.

I asked:

How many students do you have on the international law and globalisation course? Did many apply last year?

David replied:

We have just under 40 students on this programme this year.

Martyna asked:

I really would love to study law at you university, my predicted grades are Distinction* in Business Studies, Distinction* in Health and Social care,A* in Polosh,C in Psychology .Am I likely to get an offer?

David replied:

Hi Martyna,

Based on the grades you’ve mentioned, it would be unlikely we would be able to make you an offer of a place.

Hannah asked:

Would mental health issues have to be outlined somewhere when applying to a law course?

David replied:

Hi Hannah,

Applicants can disclose this information when applying through UCAS. We would also recommend that applicants get in touch with our student support department to discuss any support needs they have with them.
