BPTC Online uses a central application system called the Bar Student Application Service (BarSAS)—similar to UCAS for university applications. This is the only way you’ll be able to apply—applications made directly to providers won’t be accepted. A BPTC application costs £65.
Who should study BPTC?
The BPC is designed for aspiring barristers. It attracts students from around the world and from all parts of the UK. Students will have already completed a qualifying law degree or a non-law degree plus a Graduate Diploma in Law.
From recent graduates to doctors and front bench opposition MPs, the programme caters both for those who have always been dedicated to a professional legal career as well as people seeking a career change, and those who are able to make use of the training together with a professional legal qualification in business, management or administration.
In particular, the course is designed for students who want to develop their skills as advocates, and those who want to research and apply the law to help clients in presenting legal cases in court. Bar students often have a deep commitment to helping those who need assistance in protecting their legal rights.
