We are no longer able to admit any students intending to commence the BPTC this year (admissions closed on 31 May). Students who completed their law degree or GDL this summer but intend to commence BPTC 2018 may apply for admission after 1st October 2017.
Students who will be completing their law degree or GDL from 2018 onwards may continue to apply for admission.
For the past two years, the Bar Standards Board has published a report on BPTC Key Statistics. These statistics provide information about the profile and diversity of students embarking on the BPTC, what grades they achieved, and whether or not they were successful in obtaining pupillage after completing the course. An analysis is set out of how students fared at each of the BPTC providers, and the differences between those studying full-time and part-time.
