What is it?

The Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice is a vocational programme. So it is a practical programme which mixes theory and practical learning.

It is also the final step to becoming a Licensed Conveyancer.

You don't have to currently work in legal practice.

During the programme, you will learn how to deal with legal matters which arise from the transfer of ownership of land or property, as well as how to provide legal advice to buyers and sellers of property, lending institutions and other interested parties.

    How long does it take?  

    Typically, the Level 6 Diploma takes between 18-24 months to complete but depending on prior knowledge of the subject and your circumstances, the Level 6 Diploma could be completed in 12 months.  

    How are the modules assessed? 

    The modules are assessed by way of written examination, which you can sit at any time. You can sit your exam in one of our examination centres (we have over 50 around the country), or if you are working for an SRA or CLC-regulated practice, you can sit your exam at your place of work.
