About BPP University
Welcome to BPP University, the University for the Professions. If you are aiming for a professional career in law, business, finance, accountancy, banking, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, psychology or healthcare we believe we are the perfect choice for you.
Voted the UK's Best Higher Education Provider by Education Investor Magazine in 2013, we are the UK’s only university solely dedicated to business and the professions. Our links with leading businesses and organisations allow us to provide you with a highly regarded professional education. Our programmes are designed in partnership with employers and respected professionals in the fields of law, business, finance and health. Our tutors, most of whom have real-world practitioner experience, will not only ensure you have the practical skills and academic knowledge needed for success, but that you also have the competitive edge that makes you stand out.
We help you with every aspect of establishing your career; from personal consultations, careers events and CV preparation to job searches, application forms and mock interviews. We even continue to support you for a full year after you have graduated. As well as the standard three year degree, we also provide accelerated degrees over two years to reduce the time you invest and get you into your career sooner.
Our study centres are located in some of the UK’s most popular locations and you will learn in professional workspaces, with modern resources and the latest technology. We offer many of our law and business programmes at multiple centres.

However, should you wish to progress your studies further, our postgraduate programmes in law, business, banking, finance, management, chiropractic, psychology, dentistry or healthcare will be invaluable in taking your career to the next level. Alternatively, the Professional Qualifications and Professional Development courses on offer by the BPP Professional Education Group will allow you to qualify with a number of professional bodies, such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Chartered Managment Institute (CMI), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Banking Institute (CBI) should you choose one of these professions.
