  • On the same day as BPP made yet another mess of their exam results. Must try a little harder, BPP.

  • Let's hope they don't take the same approach in the UK as they have in the US http://www.neurosoftware.ro/finance/insurance/economy/for-profit-college-funding-will-be-subject-of-senate-hearings-harkin-says/
    How much of the £300 million was for Degree Awarding Powers that BPP had prior to Apollo takeover

  • Might need to rethink the name - University of BPP sounds a bit naff!

    ...Erm...Will...the article, if you bothered to actually read it says clearly that it will be called BPP University College with immediate effect. Try actually reading the article before you comment.

  • I think the College of Law was actually the first privately owned UK company to receive degree awarding powers not BPP as stated.

    The College of Law is not a privately owned company.

  • College of law all the way if you want lawyers who need to have books in exams - ask them to think on their feet - forget it!

  • College of Law is actually (believe it or not) a charity not a limited company.

    Silly comment. The CoL covers LPC modules in far more depth and requires greater analysis. In Practice you have the books in front of you.
    The BPP LPC does not cover topics in the same depth. Instead it has chosen the fatally flawed path of pointlessly memorising generic points which are soon forgotten.
