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 new Law Conversion Course (PGDL), which it says helps non-law students meet the “specific demands” of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).
Broadly similar to the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), the PGDL covers the foundations of legal knowledge tested on the SQE, including company law, and is priced between £9,260 and £11,590, depending on location and mode of study. Students will still be expected to progress onto an SQE prep course upon completion of the PGDL.
The launch of the PDGL aside, BPP is still to go public with details of its new SQE prep courses, although an announcement is expected imminently.
