Transfer Your Studies to London

Start your studies on HKU SPACE's popular University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses and you can apply for direct entry to Year 2 or even Year 3 of full-time LLB programmes offered by prestigious colleges at the University of London, relying on your credits earned from studying via HKU SPACE for the University of London Worldwide LLB.

The HKU SPACE law team are happy to help students enrolled on our University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses get in contact with admission tutors at the University of London.  You will need to consult with admission tutors at individual colleges, as it is entirely at their discretion whether to consider individual applicants.

The following two colleges have already provided HKU SPACE with formal information about when they may accept such transfer applicants:

Royal Holloway

Accept applicants transferring to LLB Year 2 if they fulfil three requirements: (a) obtain a result equivalent to 2:1 in their first year in other institution; (b) meet Royal Holloway entry requirements; and (c) have their modules in their LLB Year 1 in that other institution matched the modules in Royal Holloway LLB Year 1. For students relying on credits earned through the University of London Worldwide LLB, it is important to attain 2:1 standard in all Year 1/ Level 4 compulsory modules: Public Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, and Legal System and Methods.


Consider entry to their LLB Year 2 if the following Level 4 credits (120) are obtained, with the content matches the compulsory modules at Birkbeck: Legal Systems and Legal Methods (Legal System and Methods); Constitutional and Administrative Law (Public Law); Law of Obligations I – Contract (Contract Law); Criminal Law.

In order to be considered for Year 3 entry to the LLB programme, applicants should have completed credits (240) at the appropriate levels and that the content matches Birkbeck’s compulsory modules.  Apart from the Level 4 modules (120 credits) above, these must also include: Law of Obligations II – Tort (Tort Law, Level 5); Law of the European Union (EU Law, Level 5); and Property Law I (Land Law) (Property Law, Level 5).

The University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses is an exempted course under the Non Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance.
