Progression Programmes (year 12–13)

The University of Leicester is part of the Sutton Trust Pathways to Law programme where students from under-represented backgrounds have the chance to engage with university academics and industry professionals as they learn more about the legal profession. In recognition of the value of this programme, students who complete it will receive a reduced offer to study with us here at Leicester in addition to receiving a £1,000 bursary in each year of their course.

2023 applications have now closed. Check back in July for details of how to apply for the 2024 programme (eligible for students who enter Year 12 in 2024).
