Note to all international students requiring a visa:
All international applicants need to be aware that the English language requirements to attend Southampton Solent University, and the English language requirements to obtain a visa from the Home Office, may be different. This means that if you meet the Southampton Solent University language requirement to gain a place on the course, you may still have to meet additional requirements to be granted with a visa by the Home Office.
We strongly advise all applicants to visit the Home Office website which outlines all the requirements for a successful visa application and to take a look at this PDF document which outlines both Solent University and Home Office requirements for a number of language tests.
If you do not have these qualifications or are unsure of your eligibility please contact the University using the contact details found at the top of this page.
Southampton Solent University wishes to make you aware of changes to legal education and training.
Further information on the study of law:
Professional regulators in the legal sector are currently conducting an extensive consultation about legal education and training. This includes review about the routes and qualifications to become a solicitor or barrister. Some of the considerations include changing or ending existing routes, or opening new ones. The current routes of a qualifying law degree or the GDL, and the BPTC to become a barrister will remain in place until summer 2017. The current route of a qualifying law degree or GDL and LPC will remain in place until summer 2018.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board will make announcements after their consultations and reviews during 2016. These decisions will then inform the different routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.
Southampton Solent University expects to continue to meet the requirements set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board, but this may involve requirement to modify the course to meet PSRB requirements.
