Join ANC with O/A-levels & Graduate with the Highest Ranked British LLB (Hons) in Sri Lanka

“UWL is a top university from the UK and its LLB is a testament to that,” says Amodha Jayakody, an ANC student currently reading for the LLB (Hons) offered by the University of West London (UWL). While an LLB (Hons) is your launch pad for many great careers, a private practice solicitor, in-house lawyer, chartered legal executive, judge, diplomat, journalist, manager, management consultant, policy adviser to name but a few, ANC-UWL collaboration gives you the opportunity to graduate with the highest ranked British LLB (Hons) degree in Sri Lanka!

Anybody considering migration to the UK, Australia, NZ, the US, etc. will also find the LLB (Hons) from the UWL a stepping stone to a fulfilling life. Any student with A-Levels can secure a place on the three-year LLB (Hons) program and students completing O-Levels can apply for the four-year LLB (Hons) with Foundation program.

LLB (Hons)

Ranked #1 in London (National Student Survey 2021), the LLB (Hons) degree aims at equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary for them to launch a rewarding career as a legal professional. It is the first step towards obtaining the necessary knowledge to embark on the subsequent professional qualifications to become either a solicitor or a barrister.

In line with UWL’s distinctive focus on law in action, ANC law students will be taught by experts in law and legal practice. The LLB (Hons) degree will also let students focus on applying knowledge in practice, using real-world legal scenarios. All modules are taught with reference to current legal practice, in order to keep students up to date with ongoing changes in the profession.

LLB (Hons) with Foundation

Foundation year aims at helping students interested in LLB (Hons) degree but do not meet the entry requirements to go straight on to level 4 (Year 1) of the program. It ensures that students are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed at LLB (Hons) degree: students will be on a firm foundation when they begin their Year 1 of the degree right after the successful completion of the foundation year.


Gain precisely the same qualification as students in England: your degree will be designed, quality-assured and directly awarded by UWL (and recognized by Sri Lanka Law College).
