Applying to the School of Law

All applications for an undergraduate place to study law at The University of Nottingham (including applications by overseas students) must be made through UCAS. 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 selection procedure

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 LNAT (National Law Admissions Test), together with an assessment of all the information provided in the UCAS application form, including the academic reference and the applicant’s personal statement. 

Deferred entry

Applicants who wish to defer their entry by a year will not be at a disadvantage. Please tell us something about your plans for your gap year in your UCAS personal statement.  

Equal opportunities policy

The University aims to create the conditions whereby students and staff are treated solely on  the basis of their merits, abilities, and potential, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, age, socio-economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, trade-union membership, family circumstances, sexual orientation, or other irrelevant distinction.
