University to offer out-of-work graduates refund on tuition fees

Published: Monday, 04 July 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Graduates are set to receive half of their tuition fees back in cash if they fail to land a job after nine months of completing their studies from the University of Law (ULaw).

The university’s new ‘100% for You’ initiative will offer a half price discount to graduate lawyers who are out-of-work should they decide to do a postgraduate course.

ULaw’s move has put students right in the middle of the university’s new vision to ensure those that graduate see success in the job market.

The tuition fees refund is only applied to graduates from the Legal Practice Course (LPC), which is on offer in nine centres.

Depending on which centre students decide to study at, the cost of an LPC course can cost up to £15,200, meaning graduates who failed to find work could get back £7,600.

What the course offers

The course lasts over ten months, and has a variety of assessment methods including, closed book assessments, writing assignments, deadline-driven research and a submission of a file covering elective subjects.

With the postgraduate discount promise, those that studies the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), which can cost up to £19,000, would also receive a 50% discount.

According to Dr Stelios Platis, ULaw’s CEO and managing director insists the university’s focus is on ensuring long-term success.

The university was the first to offer a money back employment promise, and this announcement is further evidence of the intent to show a bigger commitment to ensure students success.

Opportunities for graduates

ULaw is the largest legal training provider in the UK, working with 90 of the top 100 law firms, and courses are regularly updated in partnership with employers to ensure students acquire the legal and business skills required in the business and commercial world.

The institution also works closely with 600 practising lawyers, who bring a wealth of experience to the mentoring programme.
