The University of Law
Tutor/Senior Tutor in International & Pathway Programmes
The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world’s largest law schools. With an impressive history dating back to 1876, we employ over 1,000 staff and have over 14,000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, along with an alumni network in excess of 100,000. In 2016, we opened our leading Business School, further enhancing our reputation as a full service legal, business and educational training specialist, operating from campuses throughout the UK, Berlin and Hong Kong and an Online campus.
What really sets us apart from other universities is the guiding principle that future lawyers and business leaders should learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context, with plenty of practical interactive engagement.
We are now seeking a highly experienced and motivated tutor/senior tutor to join us on a 0.5 basis for 12 months (fixed-term contract) ASAP.
The role entails coordination of pathway programmes for international students, as well as teaching academic, professional and English language skills to students from levels 3 to 7. You would also support the National Director with coordination and delivery of an exciting range of short courses and student experience projects. This is a campus-based position but there is flexibility to work from home some days, depending on business need. You would need to be highly conversant with digital technology, as we are currently developing new online courses, materials and assessments.
We offer an excellent range of competitive benefits including a generous annual leave allowance, private medical scheme, contributory pension scheme, life assurance, training and qualifications, and travel loans. As part of the tutor development programme, we will also support you to study for a recognised teaching qualification within your first 18 months of employment, subject to eligibility.

We offer an inclusive and supportive work environment and are committed to developing our staff through a variety of means including educational sponsorship, discounted course fees and a range of in-house training. We also offer a generous annual leave allowance and private medical insurance.
Equity and Inclusion is central to everything we do. We are actively committed to promoting and participating in good practice in the way we attract and retain staff, as we appreciate the value and benefits of a truly diverse workforce. Aligned to this is the opportunity to join one of our three peer staff networks for Disabled staff, LGBTQ+ staff and staff from an underrepresented race, ethnicity and/or cultural heritage.
We celebrate difference and recognise the benefits that this brings to our inclusive culture, including age, disability, gender identity and expression, religion, race, sex, sexual orientation and socio economic background.
