If you're on target to meet/have met the entry requirements and you have a good personal statement, then of course you do.

I see you both have your hearts set on Northern cities! They certainly have the advantages of a lower cost of living than the southern cities.

Thanks, but I went for an open day today actually and had all my questions answered, I do have one thought that I forgot to ask, how is the diversity on the Law course in terms of Black ppl, I’m hearing it’s lacking there

Great
I suppose Law is mostly white, but there are a number of black students as well as international students from countries all over the world. If you're concerned about a lack of diversity then really don't be. There are equality and diversity events within the School of Law, an equality, diversity and inclusion committee (the Head of School, Alistair, is very keen on this element) and there's also the LawSoc Equality & Diversity Secretary.

I've always found the school to be a very welcoming place no matter what your background, nationality or colour happens to be.
