Other requirements

General requirements

  • There are no formal entry requirements to study this qualification.
  • Please note that whilst it is possible to study both Stage 1 modules at the same time, students who complete W101 before W102 acquire the legal knowledge, understanding of legal terminology and legal study skills needed for successful study of W102.  
  • If you choose to study the modules together, you may therefore find studying W102 to be more challenging initially. 
  • Studying the two modules together is the equivalent of full-time study and you'll need to be able to study for up to 35 hours each week.
