General Information About Undergraduate Applications


What is the Law School's admissions policy?

All potential applicants should read the Law School’s Admissions Statement. The Admissions Statement, which is in line with the University of Bristol’s Admissions Principles and Procedure, provides full details of the way in which we assess applications.  The Law School has a vibrant community of staff and students from all over the world, and welcomes applications from both home/EU students and overseas students.

There is a wide range of information on the Study at Bristol site, including sections with specific information for mature students, D/deaf and disabled students and teachers.

How are applications made?

All applications for undergraduate study in the School of Law must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

What is the closing date for applications?

The closing date for applications for home and EU students is 15 January (for entry to university in October of that year, or for deferred entry in October of the following year). Applications received by UCAS after that date are marked ‘late’. We only consider ‘late’ applications in exceptional circumstances. If you are considering making a ‘late’ application, please contact us.

The closing date for overseas students is 30 June. No applications are considered after that date. However, we would strongly recommend that applicants apply and sit the LNAT as early as possible as we cannot guarantee that we can consider late applicants right up to the deadline.

For details about the deadlines for sitting the LNAT, please refer to the Admissions FAQ.

Who deals with my application after I submit it to UCAS?

Applications for the following Law courses are assessed by centralised team in close co-operation with Admissions Tutor(s):

LLB Law (UCAS course code M100)
LLB Law and French (UCAS course code MR11)
LLB Law and German (UCAS course code MR12)

Students who are admitted for the three year LLB Law course may, at the end of their first year of study, apply to transfer to the four year LLB in Law with Study in Continental Europe or LLB with Study Abroad. Those programmes provide an opportunity to spend one year studying law at one of our partner universities in Europe or in Singapore, Hong Kong or Japan.

Students who apply for LLB Law and French (MR11) or LLB Law and German (MR12) - courses on which there are only a few places - but who are unsuccessful, are automatically considered for LLB Law (M100). There is nothing to be gained from applying for MR11/MR12 and M100.

For details about the deadlines for sitting the LNAT, please refer to the Admissions FAQ.
