    Hi all,

    So after receiving my A-level results (which weren't as high as hoped) I decided to instead take a gap year and reassess my options and that's when I found the various foundation entry Law degrees available to students like me who perhaps missed out on entry to a Law degree. However, after some research I found the SRA website with the list of 'qualifying' degree providers and courses. I was looking at Universities such as Durham for example and noticed that they are a Qualifying degree provider with their LLB Law degree, so my question is will their foundation entry course still be considered 'qualifying'? Or will it be considered a completely seperate course and as such not at all qualifying?

    Sorry if this seems long winded and confusing, any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Yes, you will do a foundation year that essentially 'prepares' you for the uni level workload, then after the foundation year you will go on to do the same LLB Law degree as everyone else.

    Yes. If its an LLB. It will definitely qualify. Qualifiying just requires it to cover certain topics, which all LLBs will do.

    Yes. A foundation year simply sets you up with the foundation skills needed to complete the degree. It is what it says on the tin...
