Pay Less. Earn Sooner. Earn More.
Get an elite law degree in 3 years
The University of New England is the first university in NSW to offer entry into a Bachelor of Laws (3 year) to school leavers who achieve an ATAR over 90. This means that you'll finish your university study faster and be able to start your career in law sooner.
You'll be admitted as a Dean's Scholar to study Law and receive free accommodation for 3 years (worth $17,000) in UNE's residential college system.
We are one of the few universities to provide the complete on-campus experience combining affordability, student support and social life. Our graduates consistently rate living at UNE as being 'an affordable lifestyle, priceless experience'. Our residential system gives you the benefit of academic, social and personal support networks and a rich tradition of vibrant inter-college competitions in sporting and cultural activities
UNE has exchange partners in Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Spain and the USA.
We can help you get there with access to overseas study loans (OS-HELP Loans from $6,300 to $7,600 per trimester available), as well as Australian Government Mobility Scholarships worth up to $7,000 for overseas exchanges.
Pay Less, Finish Sooner
Because you only need to complete 3 years of study, you'll be paying $20,000 less in course fees than people who undertake a 5 year law degree. You'll also be earning the second highest income in Australia* for Law graduates, so you'll come out ahead financially.
Unrivalled Academic Experience
The School of Law at UNE is the largest law school outside of the capital cities. Our courses are rated highly in graduate satisfaction with students benefiting from small class sizes and an excellent student-to-staff ratio - you won't be sitting in a lecture theatre with thousands of strangers, you'll get to know your cohort and have constant access to academic and tutorial staff, ensuring you get the very best academic experience.
