would taking more years to finish university hinder my chances at a career in law? watch

    • Thread Starter

    im studying law at a prestigious russell group uni but will finish university in 5 years as opposed to three due to health reasons.

    i did a year at uni then at the end i could not take the exams and now im recovering and in september will start year 1 from scratch.

    If i will achieve a 2.1 in my degree and will have 340 ucas points will i be eligible to apply for vacation schemes/training contracts?

    No it won't impact your chances because you have legitimate extenuating circumstances.

    You have to apply for vac schemes and TCs at the appropriate time (usually your penultimate year).

    You need to declare it on your application forms though - usually in the "is there any further information you want to provide" or equivalent section

    You'd be how often it happens so I wouldn't worry about it.
