Entry requirements for the full and part time degrees are laid down in the Legal Practitioners (Students) Regulations (2018 Revision). Generally, the academic entry requirement for students who are under 21 years of age on 1st May in the year they start their course is at least two General Certificate of Education Advanced Level passes in addition to at least three General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) passes of Grade C or higher standard.

The GCSE subjects must include English Language and one of Mathematics or a Natural Science subject or Geography or Economics. Other prescribed combinations of passes may be acceptable (but proof of attainment of an acceptably high English Language standard is essential) as may other prescribed qualifications recognised as being of a comparable standard, such as an Associates Degree with a sufficiently high GPA.
