The Bar Standards Board has told BPP Law School to ask some of its Bar Vocational Course (BVC) students to delay their start dates because there are too many BVC students.
BPP has offered a “loyalty discount” of 15 per cent on next year’s fees to students who defer.
BPTC students pay will pay £14,700 for the course next year, but the aptitude test for entry onto the BPTC will not now go ahead after concerns about it were raised by the Office of Fair Trading.
The aim of the test was to filter out students who do not have a realistic chance of passing the year-long course and thereby close the gap between the number of students undertaking the BVC and the number of pupillages.
