Law with Another Legal System (Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong)
After successfully completing the first year of the LLB Law programme you may wish to apply to transfer to the LLB Law with Another Legal System (Australia, Singapore or Hong Kong). This four-year programme will allow you to spend your first two years of study at UCL, the third year studying law overseas in Australia, Singapore or Hong Kong and the fourth and final year completing your studies at UCL. Application is based on academic merit.
The programme is assessed on the basis of all four years of study, but the award of honours is based on your assessments in the second and fourth years only. To be awarded the full degree, you must pass all four years in and in the third year, you will be assessed according to the regulations of the overseas university where they are studying.
Tuition fees are paid to UCL for all four years of study (although this is reduced for the third year) and no tuition fees are paid to the overseas university.
Please note: this programme is not available to apply to through UCAS.
If you are studying on the LLB Law programme you will be able to apply to transfer to LLB Law with Another Legal System at the beginning of your year two. By applying to this programme, you will have the opportunity to complete your third year of study at either the University of New South Wales in Australia, the National University of Singapore (NUS), or Hon Kong University (HKU).
If you are successful, you will be provided with information to help you prepare for your year abroad, including information and resources concerning financial considerations, passports and visas, the availability of private accommodation, local education authority documentation, travel arrangements, and insurance.
The overseas university will also send you information regarding term dates, student registration, and enrolment. Throughout year two, you will also have opportunities to meet returning fourth-year students who have completed their year abroad and with current visiting students from overseas universities.
