Foundation Entry Year

During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the basics of law at UCLan, one of the UK’s leading providers of legal education. Develop yourself intellectually whilst acquiring basic legal knowledge and understanding of legal systems for progression onto the degree programme. With a strong emphasis on the development of core and transferable skills such as oral and written communication, IT skills, language skills, thinking and critical skills, personal development planning and group work, the law course is supported by research of international excellence and we have superb links with the regional legal profession, police and the probation service. You’ll gain a real insight into the legal profession with regular visits from leading practitioners, academics and judges. And there are plenty of opportunities to give your CV a boost. You can take part in work placements, mini pupillages, mooting and mock trials. We also encourage all students to join the Student Law Society.
