    Hello,

    I am an international student from Hong Kong. After receiving my public exam results, which is CCC equivalent for A-levels, I think believe my only way of getting in Law is through foundation courses. However, I've already retaken my exams this year and I am not allowed to take a second gap year. Is there any good foundation courses left?

    Thanks.

    I think you can get into Undergraduate degree directly by checking this.
    http://www.smuc.ac.uk/undergraduate/business-law/
    It's business law and your entry requirement goes under the green course. Just inquire with the uni through email.
    http://www.smuc.ac.uk/undergraduate/.../key-facts.htm
    Green Course is http://www.smuc.ac.uk/undergraduate/...quirements.htm
    This uni is St. Mary's University Twickenham London

    You can enter kAPLAN hOLBORN cOLLEGE with your 240 points I guess because their entry requirement are less than yours. They require 220 UCAS points whereas your one is higher. And it is a degree offered by Anglia Ruskin University.So maybe apply to it.
    http://www.holborncollege.ac.uk/cour...w%20%28M103%29

    cHECK THIS TOO. Because they count points with GCSE and ALevel
    http://courses.bournemouth.ac.uk/cou...qualification/

    This university asks for 240 points for LLB.

    i BET Saying you DON'T DO Foundation.
    It's waste when you have A-Level.
    I have given links above which match your entry requirements. Apply to them and go directly into first year of university.

    Don't worry:console:
    Be happy!

    I'll check for more universities and give links below

    You may find that most foundation courses are aimed more at students with poor english skills or from countries where there is no A level equivalent. There are few that are open to people who simply obtained lower grades. https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-...me-ft-dufifp4/ might be worth a look given that they offer some LLB degrees with professional exemptions (pretty unique within the UK as I understand it).

    I've asked for this thread to be moved to the Law forum where people with more detailed knowledge than me should be able to help

    It might be useful if you could explain what you're hoping to *do* with your law degree and also you IELTS scores.

    Hi, I've moved this to the law university sub forum for you and you should get some good advice here.

    I know Nottingham Trent has a 280 requirement for undergraduate law so you may have a chance of getting in there? Other than that look around on sites like Which and see if you can find other low requirement Law courses

    Thank you everyone!
    Birmingham decided to still give me an unconditional offer with another mark counting method. (Apparently, my results were A*BB to them). I guess I didn't do that bad after all.

    Thank you again for all your kind comments and help!
