Soooooo this is a bit noobish and I need some guidance.
I know you can do a (hons) bachelors and therefore graduate with first class honours. I do an LLB Law degree, and up until now honestly didn’t even think you could do an LLB honours degree.

I want to apply for a masters however the ones I am most interested in require “at least a 2.1 with honours degree” - does anyone have experience in this area? This might sound naive but can an LLB Law never give a “with honours”, is that only reserved for degrees which upon enrolment state they are a (hons)?
I’m very confused and quite upset as Law was the only path for me for undergrad and so I was very blind sighted in my choosing of course. Also not many of the Russel groups even provide LLB hons, which makes me more confused.

If anyone has any practical experience with this, maybe an LLB student who has gone on to do a masters at a high tier uni - please weigh in!

Thanks a bunch.

You are confused! Your degree is very likely to be an LLB (honours) but they only refer to it as an LLB.

Which uni are you doing your LLB at?

It will be the case at the uni of Birmingham, yes.

Other unis will have no problem accepting someone with a 2:1 from Birmingham for their masters programmes
