There are no entry requirements for studying either the Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals or the Level 4. It’s not necessary for new students to have any prior practical experience, knowledge, skills or understanding of conveyancing procedure and practice at this level; though Level 2 English and maths qualifications may be helpful. You’re not required to be employed in a legal services job to study any of our diplomas.
You must complete the course at a Level 4 Diploma in Conveyancing Law or have the appropriate exemptions, to study a Level 6 Diploma.
You may be entitled to exemptions for previous study i.e. A property law course or conveyancing training. Please check the CLC website, via the link below, to access the most up to date information on exemptions.
You’ll need to provide proof of your exemptions so we can process these with SQA. It’s essential you provide both your certificate and a qualification transcript as evidence, before we can start the process. We’re unable to accept one without the other. Please note there are no exemptions allowed for Understanding Accounting Procedures for Conveyancing Transactions at Level 4 or Level 6. Exemptions do not apply for the Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals course.
If you buy the full Diploma you have two years to complete this. Any second attempts at assessments or exams must be completed within the 24 month access period. If you buy the Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals course you have 30 days to complete it.
Once we’ve processed your enrolment, you’ll receive a printed copy of the SQA course manual and an email giving you access to the MOL Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) as the course is delivered online. The VLE is where you’ll find all your study materials and details of how to register for webinars, your online exams and access the content recordings.
Conveyancing: An Introduction for Property Professionals – One multiple choice exam for each unit.
Level 4 – The English Legal System, Land Law, Law of Contract, and Standard Conveyancing Transactions units are all assessed by written assignment, completed in your own time within a three or four week period, and not under examination conditions. Assignments are ‘open book’ and based on scenarios or case studies with a linked series of questions. This means you can reference any material you have available to help inform and support your answers.
Level 4 – Understanding Accounting Procedures for Conveyancing Transactions is assessed by online examination under examination conditions.
Level 6 – All Level 6 units are assessed by online examination under examination conditions.
The qualification is built on legislation that applies to England and Wales. Other countries will have their own laws and conveyancing practices regarding land registry and property, so this qualification might not be relevant/applicable/recognised. You would need to investigate which conveyancing qualifications are recognised in the country you want to practice (if its outside of England and Wales).
Licensed conveyancers are residential or commercial property law specialists (property lawyers) who work on behalf of clients buying or selling property (houses, flats, business premises or land) in England and Wales. As a conveyancer, you will deal with all legal matters, administration, finance and queries involved in a property transaction, whether you work independently or through a law firm.
Once students have become a licensed conveyancer they become holders of the 'first licence', which allows them to offer services through an employer.
Before you start thinking about taking a Diploma, you will need the following qualifications in order to qualify to access the online course:
You'll usually need at least 4 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C) including English or English literature, to begin studying CLC exams. You may be accepted without the minimum qualifications if you have experience of working in a solicitor's or licensed conveyancer's office.*

The Level 4 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice is open access, so you don't need any prior qualifications to achieve it.
To achieve a complete qualification, you can choose to either sign up to all five units and commit to completing these over two years, or you could choose to sign up to the units one by one and complete them over a 12 month timeframe.
By studying all units of Level 4 or 6, you will receive access to our online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to help you in fulfilling your course.
