BPP University Law School (SQE)

What we know so far

BPP University Law School is one of the largest legal education players in the UK with over 5,000 students across 20 study centres and online.

It delivers a wide range of postgraduate law programmes, including a range of new preparation courses to help students meet the “specific demands” of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).

For non-law graduates, BPP has created a course priced at £16,250 in London and £13,500 elsewhere. Law grads, meanwhile, will undertake a shorter course which costs £13,500 in London and £11,500 elsewhere. Postgraduate funding is available for these courses.

For aspiring lawyers looking to take on separate SQE1 and 2 courses BPP offers three SQE1 prep courses, with its self-study course starting at £2,999, and an online-only SQE2 prep course priced at £3,799.

BPP will offer full-time, part-time and online-only study options, as well as its new ‘Essentials for Practice’ programme which has been developed in collaboration with City law firms, and helps students develop a range of application-boosting commercial and digital skills. The programme is available only through its full-time combined SQE1 and 2 prep course.

A “consortium” of leading City law firms — made up of Freshfields, Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells, Norton Rose Fulbright, Linklaters and Slaughter and May — has exclusively appointed BPP to design and develop a series of “bespoke” courses which will prepare its future rookies to pass the SQE.

Similarly, BPP will also be responsible for helping future trainees at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) and Osborne Clarke qualify under the new SQE regime. The deals will see BPP provide SQE prep and support, as well as additional training focused on soft skills such as resilience, adaptability and emotional intelligence.

Fees

SQE1 £2,999

The above SQE1 figure is for BPP’s online-only self-study prep course. On-campus SQE1 prep fees are £9,000 for non-law graduates at London Holborn and £8,000 elsewhere, and £6,500 at London Holborn and £5,500 elsewhere for law graduates.

SQE2 prep at BPP is offered online-only.

BPP also offers a year-long SQE programme which combines SQE1 and 2 prep into a single course.

This is priced at £16,250 in London and £13,500 elsewhere for non-law graduates, and £13,500 in London and £11,500 elsewhere for law graduates.
