The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their specialist sector and their wide recognition by employers allows progression directly into employment. BTEC Higher Nationals offer a strong emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding in their sector.
The course prepares students for legal careers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.BTEC HNDs are well established qualifications with a proven track record of success. They are a recognized and popular route to university leading to the final year of a LL.B (Hons) Degree top up, which usually lasts 1 academic year. However HND Law top up is not available for the University of London External System.This option is also particularly relevant to International students who can get the best of both worlds: the college and the university. First two years of study will be spent at the college where learning takes place in small groups with close tutorial support and the final year will be spent at the university. International students can also save on the cost of a university degree by choosing to do an HND course first.
