Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
The LLB is a great opportunity to specialise in law over a four year degree programme. Throughout the programme, you will gain skills which are essential for a career in law but which are also transferable to other areas, so you will have excellent employment prospects in both legal and non-legal careers.
This innovative programme is aimed at both the enhancement of academic excellence and the development of verbal and written advocacy skills through applied modules such as legal skills, dispute resolution and moot court.
In your first three years, you will receive excellent grounding in all of the core law subjects such as EU law, constitutional, contract, land and criminal law.
In your final year, you can choose from a broad range of specialist modules, like Transnational Litigation, Civil Liberties and Criminology. You can also decide to spend a year studying abroad or a year on work placement as part of this programme.

As a graduate of LLB programmes you will be in a position to immediately enter professional training, either by sitting the Law Society FE1 examinations for entry to the solicitors’ profession or the King’s Inns Barrister-at-Law Degree entrance examination for entry to the barristers’ profession.
Studying law doesn’t mean you have to become a solicitor or barrister though. The skills you will gain throughout the LLB degrees are highly transferable to other areas of work and you will be in an excellent position to pursue a law or non-law career.
Students with a law degree have gained employment in areas as diverse as: business and finance, management consulting, journalism, policy development, the NGO sector, and for national and international public organisations (such as the EU or UN).
Many Postgraduate study options are also available.
