Overview

The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (UKZN’s) Part-time LLB Programme offers aspiring legal practitioners a convenient way of obtaining an undergraduate law degree through part-time study. The LLB degree is offered on a part-time basis by the School of Law, via the Centre for Extended Legal Studies (CELS) on our Howard College campus and provides a flexible option for individuals who are not able to attend lectures during working hours.  

UKZN’s LLB degree, which is fully accredited by the Council for Higher Education, is the core qualification for legal practitioners (attorneys and advocates) and, in addition, is a valuable qualification for a wide range of other careers in business, public administration and allied fields. 

Admission criteria

Admission to the program will primarily depend on academic merit:

  • If the applicant’s highest qualification is an NSC degree, i.e. Matric, then we will require: 
  • A minimum APS of 32, excluding Life Orientation; 
  • English (Home Language) at Level 5, or English (First Additional Language) at Level 6; 
  • Maths at Level 3 or Mathematical Literacy at Level 5; 
  • Endorsement or University Exemption on the applicant’s Matriculation Certificate. 
  • If you have one or more recognised tertiary qualifications, your application will be evaluated primarily on the basis of this/these qualifications, taking account of their nature, level and other relevant factors. 
  • Relevant working experience may also be considered in appropriate cases. 
  • In the event of oversubscription, preference may be given to applicants within KwaZulu-Natal. 

Please note that places in the programme are limited, and meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee admission.
