You may be wondering whether law is the right career option for you. Rather than guessing, there is an alternative that can provide you with flexibility and the opportunity to gauge whether the study of law is right for you: the foundation year.

You are probably thinking, what is a foundation year in law? The answer may surprise you. The foundation course in law introduces you to the core academic skills required for achieving high performance as a student. Skills such as researching, writing, analyzing and logical reasoning are central to the course. Core modules may include developing language skills, decoding texts, writing coherently, listening effectively and participating in classroom discussions. Concepts pertaining to law, justice, morality and their sources are often explored in great depth. Politics, economics and statistics are other usual components.

Whether you decide to study law or not, gaining a solid foundation in writing and critical thinking skills can enhance your achievement in many other academic and professional venues. The panorama of knowledge you acquire during your foundation year is relevant to many aspects of life, and can further provide you with clarity regarding your occupational choices. 

Program costs vary widely since many international schools offer a rich set of options for curriculum selection and location. Researching schools you are interested in or contacting them directly is the best way to learn more about associated expenses.

Career options for students who complete a foundation year in law depend on the whether they continue their education in law or choose another program of study. Students who continue with a law education and graduate with a law degree can expect to find options that extend well beyond the practice of law. Many lawyers work in government, policymaking, research facilities, corporations, non-governmental organizations, nonprofit corporations and human resources firms. A law education can be very portable, allowing graduates to change careers if they choose.

Many universities offer online classes, which can also help to reduce costs. Taking classes either part time or online also delivers flexibility. Many universities offer distance learning to accommodate both full-time and part-time students. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice
