Study Abroad

The school offers the following direct-entry international degree programmes:

Each of the degree programmes are four years in duration. You will spend the first two years studying at Nottingham, the third year at one of the partner universities abroad (studying aspects of the relevant national law) and return to Nottingham to complete your final year.

The four-year programmes provide you with the opportunity to study a different legal system and culture, and offers a remarkable educational and cultural experience. Students who have participated in the four-year degree programmes have proved to be very attractive to employers generally and, in particular, to the leading international firms of solicitors.

LLB/BA Law with a year abroad

We also offer the opportunity to apply to spend a year abroad with our LLB and BA Law degree programmes. The practice is to transfer a select number of students who have successfully completed their first year of study on either the LLB Law or the BA Law degree courses. You can find out more about the options below:

How to apply

You cannot be admitted to read for these degrees directly; for that reason they do not appear in the UCAS handbook. If you are admitted to the school and successfully complete your first year of study on the LLB or the BA Law degree programmes, you can apply to transfer to one of the four-year degree programmes.

Students are selected for transfer on the basis of their examination performance in their first year of study and on their suitability for study abroad.

I was lucky enough to spend my third year studying abroad at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Not only did I have the chance to understand how law operates across borders, but it was also an invaluable opportunity to explore and immerse myself in a part of the world that I would not have otherwise been able to go to.

Fees for LLB/BA Law with a year abroad

Students who are transferred to the four-year degree programmes are exempt from paying tuition fees at the host institution (although students transferred to the Law with American Law programme at the University of Texas are only partly exempt). However, students will pay a fee to the University of Nottingham.

During your year abroad you are eligible for all Student Finance loans and grants as if you had been initially registered for a four-year programme. In addition, our International Office offers a number of scholarships and bursaries, depending on your host institution.
