Legal Practice Course (LPC)

By member1359227 On 28th May 21

I know there has been a pandemic going on but BPP have been absolutely awful. The online teaching software always crashes (over a year in to online teaching and this hasn't been fixed), there are numerous mistakes and software issues with online exams which is extremely stressful as a student, the classes are not engaging at all and it seems like everyone, the tutors and programme leaders included, simply don't care anymore. A lot of the materials are outdated - there are still references to the 2019 Solicitors Rules and Incoterms 2010 when I am writing this halfway through 2021. There is no person you can contact about problems with the course or just for support and every communication with BPP is just defensive and not productive at all. Finally, despite the library being shut for over a year due to Coronavirus, they have now just announced the libraries are to shut again (they've been open about a month) until 21 June (when exams are finished) because of building works?

Master of Laws (LLM)

By member557501 On 9th May 21

BPP is honestly the worst university I have attended, and probably the worst in the UK. Myself and the rest of my cohort have experienced endless problems such as: - BPP putting the wrong material in our exams. - Receiving only three sentences of copy and pasted feedback in our mocks. - Poorly written study materials. - A significant lack of support from lecturers, particularly close to the exams. - Many issues with registration leaving many of us behind. - Near pointless lectures (essentially we are all placed in breakout rooms and told to discuss the work, there is very little help or guidance from lecturers). - No sample assessments or any form of structural guidance for the exams (essentially reducing the exams to potluck). The issues have been discussed with the head of the PGDL, but we were told nothing would be done to correct them. Please don't just take it from me, the Inns of Courts have also criticised BPP publicly... BPP has put me off pursuing law as a career.

Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)

By member1254414 On 21st February 21

Completely disorganized. I know this was the first year that they offered this specific course, but it felt as if they were just making it up as they went along. The tutors are (mostly) very good and helpful, but the administration is laughable. One of my tutors was extremely poor and yet, even as we all complained, there was no option to change. The personal tutor was unhelpful and was stingy writing personal references (requirement for many law firm applications). I asked to change personal tutors seeing as I needed an academic reference, and they refused. There was very little guidance on how to get above a pass in the exams, and the feedback on the mock exams was ridiculous. The pro bono team had a lot of opportunities but the competition to participate in any of the projects was really tough. There were some good career events, but the level of feedback on applications and CVs varied wildly based on who actually looked at your work. Some were more helpful while others were not.

LLM Legal Practice (Barristers)

By member1158194 On 19th May 21

LLM Awful experience, more expensive than all other providers but they are reducing the course cost for the next cohort even though they will get face-to-face contact with tutors, a privilege we did not receive. Tutors would not reply to emails, show up to seminars or afford us with the same respect or courtesy we were expected to give to them. We constantly were given incorrect deadlines or different students were given different deadlines (giving them an advantage.) No online provision was made for initial exams despite COVID being known about well in advance, so we were forced to sit exams in person or exams were cancelled two days before. The service provided is very impersonal, not worth the money paid (at all) and needs a complete overhaul to be worth even the reduced cost.

Paralegal Apprenticeship [BPP University Level 4 Route]

By member744085 On 28th November 19

BPP is an amazing university to study your apprenticeship at as they have degree awarding powers. This means that i can still obtain a degree after doing my A levels without attending University full time! The apprenticeship has allowed me to work at a law firm 4 days a week and study at BPP one day a week online. This lets me apply what i learn in theory in practice.

BPP is a great place to receive legal education. There is an emphasis on providing opportunities for students to use their studies as a platform for a successful legal career. The student experience is very different to more 'traditional' universities. It is a more professional environment which may disappoint some but is personally conducive to my studies. The teaching quality has been pretty good across the board and tutors generally know their stuff. Don't really have many complaints - the university has so many campuses across the country with specialisms in different centres (e.g. LPC in Holborn, business in Shepherd's Bush) so I imagine the experience may differ regionally but my experience has been a positive one for sure.

BPP is a very career and profession based university. The aim is to prepare students for the rigours and needs of their chosen profession. Tutors and teachers work hard to get students up to scratch. They're welcoming and ready to answer any fears and queries students may have. Student advice though needs great improvement (though the Student Admissions team over the phone are eager and very professional). Likewise facilities and advice needs to be more consistent across sites. And many of the recorded lectures are dated. But the study materials are free and delivered very promptly & kindly to our houses. And my programme leader is great and there for any/all queries. Also Learning Support have been quick and flexible for my needs. BPP is a university eager to help their students succeed and give many pro bono (internal & external) opportunities for students to access. They also taking mental health very seriously and training staff & students to be mental health first aiders.

Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)

By Md Wahid Asif On 22nd October 19

I have just finished my Bar Professional Training Course in BPP University at their Birmingham campus. I can tell that it was an amazing journey. Not only they are highly qualified but also they were very friendly and helpful. The study materials that I received from my university was also rich and complete. Besides this, all of the departments were keen to help the students. Finally, their tution fee is quite reasonable than others.

LLM [Law Conversion]

By member747359 On 16th April 20

Absolutely fantastic place to study My lecturers were very approachable and helped with all my questions; they are currently or have worked in the professional field, so give practical advice. I received brilliant supervisor support on my dissertation, and I enjoyed how the tutors, lecturers were professionally orientated. I found the LLM at BPP help equip me with advance skills and knowledge in a specialised area of law. Within four weeks of completing LLM, The Law relating to Fraud and Financial crime, I got employment for a fraud investigation and compliance training company. I am also considering studying towards a PhD, and I believe the research work I learn at BPP has given me the confidence to do well in any further study.

Regional branch. The tutors are well-versed in the law and it’s a close-knit team. If you do the work independently of tutorials you’ll benefit from BPP’s style of teaching. Great course content and career prospects too. You also have the opportunity to get to know the tutors; the usual tutor-student boundaries don’t apply. Opens up career prospects as the first rung in a legal career, for non-law graduates.

The PGDL FT course is well structured and uses an innovative learning platform and cycle to aim learning and development. The content is unique to BPP and quality is good (and very good in a few modules). The careers and pro bono teams are very well funded and generally excellent. The University transitioned better than others to online learning with the exception of a few high profile communication issues.
