International law transfers

Each term, we welcome many international students to the School of Law and Politics due to our friendly, supportive, and culturally diverse environment.

If you are an international student interested in studying law in the future, you can apply to study with us via the standard UCAS route or via a transfer which we offer in conjunction with a number of partner institutions located in other parts of the world.

We offer transfer programmes from the following partner institutions:

A transfer programme allows eligible students studying an LLB programme at a partner institution to transfer to Cardiff University in either year 2 or year 3 to complete their LLB programme. You will join a challenging, stimulating, and dynamic community where you’ll gain the skills, confidence, and motivation to excel in the field of law.

Law is taught in Cardiff in a more interactive manner and it is a subject which requires more analysis, understanding and critical thinking rather than mere memorising.
