Quick Transfer to UK

UK Legal Pathways

One of the best ways to qualify as a lawyer in the UK is via HKU SPACE's PCLL pathways. That's because qualifying as a solicitor in Hong Kong and then transferring to  England exempts you from 16 SQE2 assessments normally required if you qualify in the UK.

But if you want to move to the UK more quickly you can take advantage of HKU SPACE's Quick Transfer study option which usually allows you to move to the UK next year with full credit for most subjects you've already studied in Hong Kong, subject only to meeting the necessary academic and visa requirements,

Several students have already transferred to Manchester Law School within a year of starting their studies at HKU SPACE on the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law, and are now continuing on to careers in the UK.

Students on HKU SPACE's popular University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses can also apply for direct entry to Year 2 or even Year 3 of full-time LLB programmes offered by some famous colleges at the University of London such as Royal Holloway and Birbeck. Click here for more information.

The University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses and Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) are exempted courses under the Non Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance.  It is a matter of discretion for individual employers to recognize any qualification to which these courses may lead.
