European Legal Studies

50% of our 2016 ELS graduates achieved a First Class Honours degree. The four-year degree gives you a stronger academic foundation. You get a broader experience for future careers in law.

European Legal Studies (ELS) degree stream

The ELS provides first-year LLB students with a chance to study at a top European Law School. You take a year abroad between stages 2 and 3 at Newcastle.

Successful applicants will have a year to prepare for their year abroad studies. They will receive information and detailed guidance on:

  • accommodation
  • finances
  • module selection
  • health & safety

During the year abroad, you receive support from the host University and Newcastle. The ELS stream is very successful. It offers exchange places with top ranking Law Schools.

Our partners teach in English, so you do not need foreign language skills to take part in the ELS. Many students try to improve their language skills during the year abroad.

Successful completion goes on your degree title: Law (European Legal Studies) LLB Honours. The experience lasts a lifetime.
