The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the UK's longest-established specialist providers of legal education. In fact, we've trained more practising lawyers in the UK than anyone else.
And with such close links between law and business, it makes sense that a specialist in legal education is well equipped to develop an excellent business school, The University of Law Business School.
With a firm focus on practical learning, our Business School aims to make students employable and ready to succeed in the workplace. We pride ourselves on creating the right learning environment for you to achieve your business aspirations. That’s why we’ve adapted techniques used on our legal courses with the aim of developing an engaging specialist learning experience that will prepare you for a career in the world of business.
We understand that everyone’s circumstances are different. That’s why we offer a wide range of study modes (full-time, part-time, on campus, online) across our courses to provide you with the greatest choice and flexibility you need to succeed in your studies.
Our Business School campuses are in London Bloomsbury, Birmingham and Manchester for undergraduate courses. Postgraduate courses are taught at our Birmingham, Leeds, London Moorgate and Manchester campuses. Each is a thriving commercial hub, ideally situated to give you great access to music venues, theatres, cinemas, bars and restaurants. Our postgraduate courses can be studied part-time or full-time and also available online.
Our online programmes will save you the time and money on commuting to and from campus and allow you to study anywhere, across devices, however you can be reassured that the course won’t be compromised on quality or be less demanding than our on-campus courses.
