Hello,

I am 23 years old and I am a part-time student in a university in Edinburgh. I am doing a LLB degree (4 year course). The only reason I chose to study as a part-time student is because I could not get a place in the full-time program.

So I would like to know if it is possible to do 2 years in 1. I am currently in my first year, so next year I would like to do my second and third year at the same time. Do you know if it is allowed? Knowing that I only have 2 modules per semester, spread over 2 days a week (3 hours per module so 6 hours a week).

Thank you.

It's certainly not unprecedented. But this is a conversation you should be having with your tutor at Edinburgh.

The reality is that a few people will probably drop out from the first year full time course. If this happens there should be no reason why you can't take their place in 2nd year. Have a talk to the course leader at uni about your idea.

Hi, thank you so much for your answer.
Yes I know I can take their place in second year, I already asked my program leader. But I'd like to drag your attention on my main question which is: am I able to do two years in one?
Do you have any idea about it?

by two, do you mean two part time years in one, or two full time years in one?

I'd say part-time because I don't think I'd have the time to follow 2 full-time years. It would be impossible on a timetables point of view

my thoughts exactly. Two part time years in 1 will be like doing 1 full year. All you need to figure out is how you'll catch up with the 2nd half of the part time course! i.e. you'll have 1/2 year 1, but probably need to do 2nd half of year 1 before you do the year 2. I'm not sure if they'll allow you to do year 2 full time along with 2nd half of year 1 course if that makes sense?

Again, course tutor is the best person to ask about this!
