Unfortunately, this line of learning is not considered suitable for entry onto courses within the School of Law.
This will not be included as part of your offer but may be taken into account at results time.
If you have followed a non-standard educational route (eg home educated) we will consider your application against the standard entry criteria for the course to which you apply.
You must also provide a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education.

UCAS provides guidance on how to get a reference
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
We normally do not require Return-to-learn students to achieve our normal entry requirement but need evidence of recent academic study (within last 12 months), preferably two A-levels at AB or an Access course.
If candidates are within a few years of normal school leaving age (18-20) we would usually expect them to apply with A-Levels.
Candidates must show a high standard of written and spoken English. We require a minimum of A from GCSE English Language or equivalent such as IELTS 7 with a minimum of 6.5 in each subtest.
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

Careers
The course allows students to specialise in crime-related subjects that may be useful for a legal career specialising in criminal law and civil liberties. The course also caters for students who may wish to become lawyers but who are simply interested in learning more about crime and justice. In addition, this course provides an excellent foundation for a career in the field of criminal justice (eg police, probachelortion, juvenile justice, prisons service, crime prevention). Like all law and social science degrees at the University of Manchester, the intellectual rigour and training of this course will fit all graduates for almost any non-scientific career of their choice. All Law School students have the opportunity to attend skills training courses that have bachelorsic modules aimed at employment in general and more specialist modules aimed at particular careers.
If you want to practise as a solicitor or bachelorrrister the course covers all the core subjects required to qualify for exemptions at the next stage in your training. However it will be necessary to do some further vocational training. You will need to do the Legal Practice Course and obtain a training contract to become a solicitor. You will need to do the bachelorr Professional Training Course and obtain a pupillage to become a bachelorrrister.
The University of Manchester's School of Law has strong links with the legal professions and public services. Our graduates have a good record of securing employment both in the legal profession and other professional environments. Careers advice is available from a dedicated careers advisor. For those who wish to qualify as a solicitor, every graduate with a 2:1 degree or better is guaranteed a place at one of the branches of the University of Law or BPP to study on the Legal Practice Course.
