All applications for a place on any of the LLB degree schemes must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) application service.
Offers are made to all students who either meet, or have the potential to meet, the entry requirements for the relevant degree programme and these selection criteria should be read in conjunction with those requirements. Potential is assessed by reference to the entirety of the information included on the UCAS application form, and in the light of any special circumstances relating to an applicant of which the School has been informed.
Applicants whose academic profile suggests that they are likely to achieve the entry qualifications may be made offers. Where special circumstances have been notified to Cardiff Law School, offers may be made to applicants whose academic profile has been affected by those circumstances. (In assessing academic profile, specific reference is made to GCSE results and predicted A2 grades.)
Applicants passing the initial stage of the selection process will be made offers where their applications are supported by:
Applicants unable to demonstrate the requisite potential through actual or predicted grades may be offered an interview and aptitude test as an alternative means of showing their academic potential. Decisions as to whether or not to invite such applicants for interview are taken by reference to the entirety of the information disclosed on the UCAS form, with particular emphasis placed on any past voluntary or paid employment history.
Admissions tutors will look for evidence of ability across the following range of skills:
All suitable applicants who are eligible for additional consideration and are predicted a maximum of two grades below the relevant typical offer, and who would otherwise meet the School's selection criteria, will be guaranteed the typical offer for their chosen course at Cardiff Law School. In addition, applicants eligible for additional consideration who accept an offer as their firm choice, but who narrowly miss the terms of that offer, will be given priority should any places remain unfilled following the release of A-level results.

Cardiff Law School does not have any standardised admissions test requirements (e.g. LNAT). However, as noted above, applicants unable to demonstrate the requisite potential through actual or predicted grades may be offered an interview and aptitude test as an alternative means of showing their academic potential. This test is set internally by the Law School and is intended to test applicants’ critical thinking and written communication skills.
Cardiff Law School does not routinely interview applicants for its undergraduate programmes. However, as noted above, applicants unable to demonstrate the requisite potential through actual or predicted grades may be offered an interview and aptitude test as an alternative means of showing their academic potential.
