    Hi,

    I know some funding is available for second degrees in some courses that lead to professional qualifications such as dentistry and social care, but I wondered whether law counts for this? I have received offers for fast-track graduate entry 2-year LLB (ORD) courses at a couple of universities for 2017 but wasn't sure if this would qualify for funding? It is technically another undergrad degree and not a postgraduate qualification.

    Also, I would be applying as an Independent student living with my partner.

    Many thanks,

    M

    No, law is not one of the ELQ exempt subjects (even if it is graduate-entry). If you want to be a lawyer then do a GDL, there's no need to do a second degree.

    Hi there,

    We're unable to fund another undergraduate degree in law, unfortunately. It may be best to speak with the university in this case - they may have other funding options for you.

    Thanks.

    Thank you both for your replies, good to know. Sounds like the GDL may be the better option.
