The BTEC National in Applied Law is designed to appeal to learners who are interested in a career in law or who are planning to go to university and want to gain a good understanding of law, on a course that carries the same UCAS points as the A-level.

The BTEC Subsidiary Diploma is the equivalent to an A-level. This requires students to complete the three mandatory units in the first year, plus three optional specialist units in the second year.

In 2023 BTEC Law student progress was significantly higher than national benchmarks.
