All applications for an undergraduate place to study law at The University of Nottingham (including applications by overseas students) must be made through the UCAS application procedure. Decisions by the School of Law will be notified to candidates through UCAS using the Students’ Portal.
Applications for our courses are made under one of five codes. All applicants for LLB Law and BA Law degrees are made under code M100. Students are not required to specify which of these courses they intend to study until they register with the University at the beginning of their course.
The Senior Status degree, M101, is a two-year accelerated degree in law. This degree is offered to students who have already graduated with a degree in another subject. This course is for the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree only.
Applicants for Law with French and French Law apply for course M1R1, Law with German and German Law apply for M1R2 and those for Law with Spanish and Spanish Law M1R4. These courses are designed to give students an introduction to the life and culture of another country. They are, therefore, not appropriate for a student who is a resident of that country.
All applicants, including overseas students, will be required to undertake the National Law Admissions Test (LNAT).
The School plans to admit 173 Home/EU undergraduate students on the M100 courses, and 6 students each on M1R1, M1R2 and M1R4 courses. In addition we expect to enrol a further 60 International students from non-EU countries.
Selection of those applicants to whom we will make an offer will be based upon a combination of the candidate’s academic record and the score in the National Law Admissions Test (LNAT), together with an assessment of all the information provided in the UCAS application form, including the academic reference and the applicant’s personal statement.

The School of Law welcomes applications from mature students and a number of places are reserved for such applicants. This means persons who are making a change in the direction of their lives by a return to education and by the study of law.
Such applicants should include in their personal statement on the UCAS form an outline of their life experience to date, together with their reasons for wishing to study law. In the case of such applicants a more flexible standard will apply to their academic qualifications, but they will normally be expected to show evidence of recent involvement in some academic work such as undertaking an Access to Higher Education course or by studying two or more A level subjects.
The School of Law is actively seeking applications from students with an educationally disadvantaged background. Such students may be considered with a less demanding profile. Similarly the Law School is keen to receive applications from appropriately qualified mature students. In each case the applicants will be required to complete the National Law Admissions Test (LNAT).
