Course description

LLB(Hons) Law with Business (with Foundation) gives you a solid foundation in business and law. In your first year, your time will be split between both subjects. In your second and final year, you’ll study 75% law and 25% business. Innovative modules in commercial, company, international trade and employment law run alongside business modules spanning marketing, strategic management and managing people. You’ll be taught by experts from the reputable Law and Business Schools and be part of an active community of students and staff with a commitment to enterprise. This course allows you to work towards a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD). This gives you the professional qualifications needed to progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC LLM) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to train as a solicitor or barrister. Gain valuable real-world skills and experience through study trips and business-related work placements. Mock trials, law simulations and Pro Bono work will ensure you graduate with a practical understanding of law and familiarity with the industry. Career prospects are diverse and exciting; depending on your specialism, you could choose a career in management, law, finance and banking and the public sector. Our graduates have secured roles at Rolls Royce, HP, IBM, NHS, Hayes, Microsoft, Maclaren F1 and Lidl. You could train as a barrister or solicitor, or undertake a business related postgraduate degree.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The number of business studies graduates fell significantly last year after a long period of increase. But there were still more than 14,000 degrees awarded and this is the third most popular subject for new graduates. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. Around 40% go into jobs in finance, sales, recruitment, management (particularly retail) or marketing. There is also a small (but well paid) group who take their technical skills into computing and IT. Thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are above the average for all subjects and particularly healthy in London where they top £25k. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.
