Fast Track Towards the PCLL for HKU SPACE Students

This one year programme for HKU SPACE students leads to an LLB (Hons) Hong Kong awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University, and gives exemption from more PCLL Conversion examinations than almost any other English law degree.

This programme is  for students who have studied at HKU SPACE on the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) and is the final year of a fast track programme allowing students who study with HKU SPACE to complete all the law subjects currently required to apply for entry to the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme.

Lectures and tutorials are scheduled to be delivered between September and February, followed by revision lectures in March and April.

Teaching will draw on the expertise of both local lecturers and Manchester Metropolitan University lecturers.

  • Classes are expected to be held in HKU/HKU SPACE teaching venues. However, as the health and safety of our students is our top priority, some classes may instead be delivered as live online classes if the situation in Hong Kong requires this.
Non-Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance

This is an exempted course 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 this course may lead.

In 2020/21, students will study four modules, including three of which are the remaining prerequisites (post-GDEHKL(CPE)) for entry to the PCLL programme:

  • Commercial Law
  • Business Associations
  • Law of Hong Kong Evidence
  • Hong Kong Civil Procedure (half-module) 
  • Hong Kong Criminal Procedure (half-module)

Assessment is by a mixture of coursework and examinations.  Most examinations take place in Hong Kong in May/June.



The LLB (Hons) Hong Kong is for students who have completed the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination)   taught at HKU SPACE and awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University.

Priority for admission is given to students who have completed the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) at HKU SPACE. Applications will only be considered from students who have completed other Graduate Diploma in Law programmes if spaces are still available after giving first priority to HKU SPACE students. 

Students who have previously studied this programme are not eligible for admission for a second time. 

It is also the responsibility of applicants to determine their eligibility to study this programme, which is intended for those having the right to live and study in Hong Kong (under current immigration rules, it is very unlikely any overseas applicants will be granted visas to study this programme).

Course Fee
  • HK$45,800 tuition fee and £641 registration fee

With a history of several decades in Hong Kong, the LLB (Hons) Hong Kong has a long and proven track record of successfully preparing our graduates to continue on to enter the PCLL and legal practice in Hong Kong.

In recent years large numbers of graduates of the LLB (Hons) Hong Kong have successfully secured places on PCLL courses at The University of Hong Kong (both full-time and part-time) and other universities, including some highly-prized government-funded places.

Since our graduates can avoid taking many extra conversion exams required of graduates of most other English law courses, they have enjoyed a much smoother pathway towards the PCLL.

Entry to the PCLL is competitive and admission criteria are subject to change. For more information, please click here.
