BPTC Providers Comparison Table

Want to become a barrister and wondering how to choose a BPTC provider? You’ve come to the right place! This page features our BPTC course comparison table, which details various BPTC providers, course details, tuition fees, assessment days and scholarships available.

There are many factors to consider when considering BPTC providers. For example, does the law school offer scholarships to assist with tuition fees? Do you want to study full-time or part-time? Is there an assessment day and what will that entail? For example, at some law schools, this assessment day may involve an essay-based exam, an interview or a mock court hearing speech. For the details of these assessments, as well as information on entry requirements and course structure, it’s important to look at the individual law school’s website.

For more information on the BPTC, visit our Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) page.

Please note that the information in this BPTC providers comparison tool is checked and updated regularly to the best of our ability. However, the information may be subject to change and we therefore cannot guarantee the accuracy of all information at all times. We therefore recommend contacting the BPTC providers directly before making any significant BPTC course application decisions.
