  • "I think any talk that BPP and CoL offer better quality because they’re more ­expensive is an urban myth"

    BPP is more of a Boy Blunder than part of any dynamic duo.

  • They both suck and are woeful excuses for educational institutions, they are some sort of shinny finishing school for corporate wannabees. The education is aweful, the intellectual content absent, and in the case of BPP lets rememeber that this "fine" institution is brought to you by the money grubbing luminaries of the Apollo Group who also own such inspirational institutions as the University of Phoenix mail order degree company.

  • "Aweful" presumably to be included in the 2012 Oxford dictionary and meaning to be full of awe.

  • CoL is a complete waste of time and money. Their fees are exorbitant and their marketing about the value of an LPC sans training contract is deceitful. An LPC has no value outside of legal practice and the market is oversaturated with LPC 'graduates' and will remain so for years to come.

  • In spite of myself, a small voice in my head says to me that the CoL LPC offers excellent CV enhancers such as pro bono, etc., and that if passed with say a distinction, it must surely impress more than a distinction from most other providers. Any student at all who might be able to afford the cash, and who wants to get a competitive advantage, or to offset a perceived disadvantage, will probably mull over such points, I'd have thought.

  • Students should look to the smaller London providers, such as London Metropolitan University, which provide an excellent LPC somewhere between BPP/CoL and NCLT. The fees are reasonable, but not cut-price, reflecting the fact that a good quality LPC can be delivered on a small-scale with attention to the actual students rather than the bottom-line of profit!

  • Having studied @ BPP I can say it was the worst education I had the misfourtune to experience. I wasnt alone in this view.

  • I'm aware that this thread is quite old, but in case anyone is still reading it; note that the Plymouth figures are wrong.

    Is this an indicator of the CAB's quality of work!?

    Incidentally (and I promise I didn't start writing this in order to have a pop at the CAB; this has only just occurred to me...) when I applied for the GDL, the CAB failed to send my application to my local uni in time, and I only received an offer from them on the 'late applications' date, which meant I ended up studying in Nottingham instead.

    Hmm......
