Is LLB or GDL better?

What is the difference between an LLB and a GDL?
Perhaps the most obvious and practical enticement the LLB boasts over the GDL is that a law degree equals a year less study; this means LLB students are ahead of the game and are earning money sooner. Included in this bonus is the prospect of a year’s less university debt, which is weighing down on GDL grads’ shoulders.
Do I need to study the GDL to study in the UK?
If you think this is the route for you, and you wish to study in the UK, you will need to study the GDL. What is the GDL? The Graduate Diploma in Law, known more widely as the GDL, is a one-year full time law conversion course (or two years part time) which brings students up to date with the knowledge they need to become a lawyer.
What is the Graduate LLB?
The Graduate LLB is a two-year course, meaning two years’ worth of tuition fees and an extra year of living expenses on a student budget. The course will qualify you to proceed with either the LPC or the BPTC.
What is an LLM degree in law?
An LLM is a master’s in law, designed for students who have already completed their LLB undergraduate law degree or their GDL course. It is, however, possible to earn a place on an LLM without having completed an LLB or a GDL, so long as you can demonstrate that you have significant legal knowledge.
