Hello!

I was wondering if anyone has any insight into the eligibility for sitting the new SQE to become a solicitor in England.

Mainly whether:
1) an international student can take the exam, and
2) whether the 2 years relevant work can be done outside the UK

Any information would be helpful

Thank you!

I wouldn't think that you would be able to do the work outside the UK. It's supposed to be "qualifying work experience", so I'm gathering that there would be some criteria as to what the employer offers in this training period, which would be regulated by the SRA.

From the details that have been released (which isn't particularly much) I think you would be able to join as an international student though. I'm just not sure how the Visa works around it, whether you would be applying as a student or as someone wanting to work here...
