You do get a bigger maintenance grant if you study in London and in my experience you actually end up with more money than you do elsewhere in the country on the smaller maintenance grant. Some parts of the country are almost as expensive as London yet you get around £2000 less per year. Southampton is one of those places!
But yes you could do a conversion - that's completely possible (although it will cost you more and take a year's extra study, which is something to take into consideration if finance is an issue).
Ah I see :/ No not many unis do offer it. I want to do Arabic and Mandarin alongside my course and only 1 uni offers that and I can't afford London, so I could do law conversion after a history and modern languages degree
Actually, UCL was my first choice but they asked for an A in Spanish, which I didn't get. But I'm happy to be at Southampton now, although I can't deny that I still feel a bit disappointed about not getting into UCL (who wouldn't?!). It is a really good university though - excellent teaching and the right size classes in my opinion. The potential for a year abroad was attractive to me because, as you might have discovered, not many universities offer it alongside law. Also one of Southampton's partner universities is the Complutense de Madrid which is not only a great university but obviously it's also in what I think is the nicest city in Spain!
What's making you choose between History and Law? They're quite different subjects.
I'm just wondering about your university choice juxtaposed with your results. Your results are amazing! So obviously you could have gone to pretty much any uni anywhere, so was it Southampton's Legal course that attracted you? As I'm still uncertain if i want to do law or history and modern languages, and Southamptons European legal studies course always has looked interesting, so was it a deciding factor for you?
