Denning Law School offers a golden opportunity for students hailing from GCSE O Levels* with a direct pathway to the 4-year Law Programme. The programme integrates the International Foundation Diploma (IFD) accredited by NCC Education in the UK with the LLB (Hons.) degree offered by the University of London.
The choice of integrating the IFD by NCC Education with the LLB (Hons.) Programme is deliberate, because it is an globally recognized skill-based diploma that focuses entirely on the development of key skills required to practice as a successful lawyer. Students will complete the IFD in the 1st year and then proceed directly through the Standard Entry pathway to LLB (Hons.) programme and complete the 3-year degree.
The IFD has been carefully crafted with the intent of holistic skill development, including but not limited to, precise writing, oral and written communication skills, articulating effectively, presenting efficiently, advocating smartly; key skills that are critical in the development of a lawyer. The programme while serving as a guaranteed pathway onto the LLB (Hons.) programme, will enable students to learn law with purpose and apply the skills throughout their academic and professional career.
