The College of Law (CoL) is continuing its assault on the undergraduate market by rolling out the law degree in its Guildford centre for September 2012.
The law school giant’s decision to extend the delivery of its new £9,000 per year LLB follows an increase in applications, receiving just shy of 500 submissions for the two-year course.
Board member for business developments Sarah Hutchinson said: “[The decision] is because the number of LLB applications received so far for our Chester, Birmingham and Bloomsbury centres has exceeded our expectations.
“We can see from applicants’ profiles that there is a high level of interest in studying in the South so opening in Guildford enables us to meet our student demands for 2012.”
From 2013 the CoL will also offer its LLB at its Bristol and York centres, making the law degree available at six locations across the UK (24 January 2011).
Meanwhile, BPP Law School has bolstered its Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) offering to its Liverpool and Cambridge centres from September 2012.
The news comes despite the poor intake for its Birmingham and Bristol branches, which forced BPP to cancel its part-time GDL courses for 2011 (22 September 2011).
