Top Course Highlights
Small Class Sizes
Small class sizes at the College are very rare in Higher Education. This leads to excellent student: teacher ratios and superior educational settings.
Meeting the Needs of Employers
The College endeavours to meet the needs of the legal sector. We ensure that our content is industry-led and we embed transferable employability skills throughout the programme.
Accessibility and Diversity
We timetable our sessions to ensure that contact hours are compressed into just two days. This makes it easier for our students to work alongside their classes and to meet the demands of life outside of study.
