    If you mean an undergraduate LLB, the only one I know of is the accelerated one through BPP. All the others are either campus based or more than two years.

    There might be some postgraduate LLB 2 year courses you can do online though if you have already got an undergraduate degree.

    Their two-year degree costs 9k a year so it isn't really more expensive considering youre only doing 2 years, in fact its saving you some money. You cant expect to pay a lot less just because you want to do shorter course im afraid..

    I found this: http://www.rgu.ac.uk/law/study-optio...w-llb-online-/
    It's cheaper, around 10k for the whole program. Is it reputable?
    Do you know any other better/cheaper options? It can be a grad entry, but I want to do it in 2 years.

    Thanks!

    A two year online course that isn't a post grad course is going to be questioned no matter who was providing the course to be honest.

    It isn't that it is online - I've recruited OU students who have done online courses. But 2 year courses are slightly concerning for a lot of firms (when they are not PG LLBs). Personally I think it comes from the view that an accelerated course like this gives you very little opportunity to develop the other aspects of your CV which are just as important as your academics.

    Why are you looking at an online 2 year course? I am assuming from your earlier comment that cost is the main issue? If so, you will find it very difficult to find a reputable LLB course that doesn't cost a significant amount of money.

    You need to be aware this is Scottish law not English law (a common mistake made by many students who think they are the same thing).

    If you are looking to work as an English qualified lawyer, you would need to take a couple of English law modules (usually Land law and Constitutional law) to them be able to take the LPC before.

    Obviously not an issue if you are looking to work in the legal profession in Scotland though.

    Also it states this course is for postgraduates. Not sure what your status is, but if you have got an undergraduate degree you could also look into online GDL courses as an alternative. That is only one year instead of two, so although the courses are expensive, might work out cheaper/quicker.

    Technically means "Literally Legum Baccalaureus" but it is really just the "title" of a law degree, in the same way someone might study a BA and B.Sc in another subject.
