Which conveyancing course should you do?

Conveyancing courses help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to work in the conveyancing field and eventually practise as a licensed conveyancer in the UK. 

To become a conveyancer, you need a professional qualification from the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) such as the Level 4 or Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice, or the new ‘Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals’ short course.  

You can study a CLC qualification yourself or as part of an organisation’s training programme. However, many employers prefer to choose candidates who already have or are working towards their CLC qualification, over those who don’t.  

What conveyancing courses are available?

We’re proud to be the largest provider of nationally recognised CLC Qualifications. We offer three conveyancing courses:

  • Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals 

This short course gives you an introduction to the conveyancing industry and covers the basic skills and knowledge you’ll need to support entry-level roles. If you have no experience and little knowledge of conveyancing, we recommend enrolling on the introductory short course to build up your knowledge of the conveyancing sector. This will make it easier for you to pursue your Level 4 Diploma.

  • Level 4 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice

This Level 4 diploma course is ideal for you if you have little or no experience in conveyancing. You’ll develop the foundation knowledge and skills needed to work in the industry. If you don’t have a formal conveyancing qualification but are looking for a first role in the sector before progressing to become a licensed conveyancer, then the Level 4 Diploma is for you. You can enrol on the Level 4 course without any prior experience and little knowledge of conveyancing.

  • Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice

This Level 6 diploma covers all the specialist skills associated with conveyancing law and helps you understand the legalities behind buying and selling different properties. This is also the only diploma that enables you to become a licensed conveyancer. 
You can only start the Level 6 Diploma if you’ve already achieved your Level 4 conveyancing qualification.  Level 6 covers more advanced conveyancing topics and is ideal for you if you’re looking to become a licensed conveyancer or manage your own conveyancing practice.
