Information for applicants from South Korea
Welcome to our page for students from South Korea. We hope the information on this page is helpful. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Senior High School Diploma is not sufficient for entry onto an undergraduate law course.
Students without an A-level equivalent will need to partake in further study before applying directly onto an undergraduate programme. Some students opt to take a two year programme, common examples include: the International Baccalaureate, A-levels, or the Cambridge Pre-U. These can be studied in the UK, but are also offered in a large number of countries worldwide.
Another option would be a one year route such as an Access course or Foundation year. If you decide to take a Foundation year we advise that you look for one at the university where you wish to study your undergraduate degree. Queen Mary hosts the International Foundation Programme in Humanities and Social Sciences which, providing you meet the entry requirements, will qualify you for entry onto the Law programmes that we offer.

"My home town is Seoul. There are so many law events going on at this University, which I enjoy the most! You can attend a speech from Judges, and solicitors, and you can also attend to the law fair exclusively for QMUL students annually with so many law firms and their graduate recruit teams are there for your enquires. Basically, you have more opportunity to taste what is like to be a lawyer and can solve your burning questions by asking the experts directly. I wish I had known the whole process of applications (UCAS) in terms of whether I should apply for the foundation course first or it is ok to apply directly to the universities before starting at QM. I have a bachelor degree, which is non-law and doing my law degree here. So if you are not a law student but willing to become one and don't know how to be one, I can be the one to answer your questions." - Aru Chung, QMUL Student Representative
