What is it like to study at Access Law?
The Level 6 Diploma is equivalent to the final year of a degree. Typically, the Level 6 Diploma should take 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 .
Where a student intends to complete the Level 6 Diploma in 18-24 months, the Landlord & Tenant module would usually be completed in 6-8 months. As mentioned above, this module could be completed over a longer or shorter period depending on prior knowledge of the subject and your circumstances.
ALO will tailor your module and the support offered to help you achieve your desired outcome, in your desired timeframe.
To apply for the Level 6 Diploma you need to have completed the Level 4 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice. You may qualify for an exemption from these entry requirements if you have a Law Degree or a Graduate Diploma in Law.
Once your application has been reviewed you will be given access to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to complete your student induction.
If you are a new student, you will be required to provide photographic identification as part of your application. This can be scanned and emailed to us within 14 days.

Pay by: Monthly payments
You can pay your fees for each module on a monthly instalment plan. Collection fees apply. The collection fee varies depending on whether you pay paying by 3, 5 or 12 monthly instalments.
Pay by: Sponsoring organisation
A third party (such as an employer) who is paying either all or part of your fees and agrees to be invoiced for fees should complete our Sponsorship Agreement Form. This must be done before the programme is commenced. You will receive notification by email confirming when your sponsorship agreement has been confirmed and you are able to log onto our virtual learning environment (VLE).
Your sponsor must sign the sponsorship agreement form. You cannot sign it yourself.
Once a sponsorship agreement has been accepted by us, and your employer has been invoiced, your sponsoring organisation will have 30 days from the invoice date to pay the invoice, which will not affect your ability to commence your programme.
If the sponsorship agreement does not cover the full amount of fees due, you may the pay the balance by contacting our finance team.
You can apply for an exemption for the Landlord and Tenant module where you have a Law Degree/Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and have passed a Legal Practice Course and have passed the Advanced/Commercial Property Law elective or similar qualification.
To apply for an exemption you will need to provide us with evidence of your prior qualification. We will map your prior learning to the learning outcomes of the Landlord & Tenant module and confirm whether you are eligible for an exemption.
Students transitioning from an external qualification to SQA must achieve at least one module without exemption to be awarded an SQA Diploma.
This module is assessed by way of a 3 hour written examination which can be sat whenever you feel ready.
