Want to study as an Exchange Student?
Want to study at UNE under an Advanced Standing Agreement?
- We have entered into a number of both LLB and LLM Advanced Standing Agreements with our Partner universities. Students from those universities can study with us online or on-campus - depending on the terms of the Agreements.
Want to study LLB or LLM units to supplement your degree (non-award study)?
- International Law students studying in other countries may enrol in individual units as non-award students i.e., not enrolled in a UNE Law course (program/degree). For instance, UNE law offers a number of distinctive units/subjects that focus on natural resource governance.
- On the successful completion of these units you will have your results accredited to you by UNE on a UNE academic transcript but more importantly you may gain credit towards your Masters/Undergraduate degree at your home institution.
Want to become a truly International Lawyer?
- International students who have completed a Civil law degree can study a common law degree at UNE. Potentially only 2 years of study will need to be undertaken if advanced standing can be applied for your overseas law degree. Read more about our 3 year Bachelor of Laws
Are you a legal practitioner who wishes to practice law in Australia?
- Overseas legal practitioners who wish to practice law in Australia must have their overseas study assessed, and generally are required to complete Australian jurisdictional subjects in order to be admitted.
- In this regard, see the Legal Profession Admission Board
- Once assessed you can enroll in those units with us at UNE as a non-award student (see above). However, we suggest that you might want to complete the full law degree. In doing so your previous degree will be assessed to determine whether you are eligible for advanced standing considerably reducing the units that need to be completed for the award of the LLB.
