Applying to Leicester

Entry requirements

You can find our entry requirements on our course pages for Law LLB and Law (JD Pathway) LLB. We do not require students to have taken the LSAT or LNAT. If you are unsure if your qualifications meet our entry requirements then please contact us at

Making an application through UCAS

All applications to UK universities are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). You will need to submit an online application form, which includes your personal details, your academic achievements, a personal statement and a reference. The deadline for applications is 30 June each year but we recommend that you apply as early as you can.

Once we have received your application from UCAS, we will decide whether to make you an offer to study with us. The UCAS website explains the different types of offers made by universities.

Fees, living costs and scholarships

You can find information on tuition fees for international students on our course pages for Law LLB and Law (JD Pathway) LLB.

Living costs for students at the University of Leicester are estimated to be an average of £850 per month, which includes accommodation, food, bills and social activities. 

We offer two different scholarships for Canadian applicants. The Entry Scholarship applies to all students, and the Excellence Scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit.
