Information for Students from the US
Why study with us?
A US applicant wishing to join a Buckingham LLB programme does not have to have complete the LSAT, or indeed have a first degree. However, he or she may be required to take all or part of a Foundation programme, depending on age and educational experience.
After the degree
Each state of the United States operates its own requirements for entry to the local Bar and any US applicant considering taking a qualifying law degree England and Wales (QLD) should consult with his or her local bar about how it will be treated.
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.
Although the New York Bar does not require applicants to have completed a first degree before taking the Buckingham LLB, most US applicants for Law programmes do already have a first degree. That means that they may qualify for our International Scholarship.
Buckingham is also signed up to the US Federal Loans Scheme and so US applicants may be able to apply for US student loans for their LLB studies. For further information on this, see: www.direct.ed.gov.
