Open evening on 7 May for those who want to progress careers through part-time study.

The Part-time law degree at Buckingham University (LLB Hons) is a four year programme that results in the award of a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) and attracts students of all backgrounds and ages who wish to boost their career or qualify as a solicitor or barrister. The programme has proven very popular with residents of Buckingham and Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Pauline Purcell, of Purcell Solicitors in Milton Keynes, is a graduate of the programme and is one of many people who have used the degree as a springboard to professional qualification and career progress. It is taught through a mixture of distance learning and, during term time, seminars on Wednesday evenings.

At the Wednesday seminars students receive guidance and support from enthusiastic staff who are experienced in helping students to develop the analytical and research skills necessary for an understanding of the law. Three subjects are studied each year of the programme and specific module packs written by those who teach the course are given to students in addition to the relevant textbooks.

Applications are welcome from people of all educational backgrounds and ages. Term starts on Wednesday, 24 September 2014 and there will be an Open Evening for those interested in the course to be held at the University on Wednesday, 7 May 2014. This Open Evening is an opportunity to meet with current students and also to hear from graduates and those who teach on the course. Full details of the Open Evening can be found on the University’s website.

Fees are £3,498 per year and there is an option to pay monthly, interest free. There are also non-means tested and age-blind student loans available from Student Finance England that cover the whole fees.
