BPP London Waterloo
Study at BPP London Waterloo
BPP's study centre, London Waterloo, is situated in the vibrant hub of the city: a bustling and cosmopolitan area of London known for its proximity to the cultural quarter of the South Bank. It also boasts fantastic national and international transport links – and is less than five minutes’ walk from Waterloo station.
Our Law School offers a range of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as professional qualifications, and our School of Health offers degree programmes in Nursing and Psychology.
Our modern building is equipped to the highest standard with fully-equipped classrooms, mock courtrooms, high-level technological facilities and comfortable common rooms. You will benefit from friendly and expert tutors alongside a team of dedicated support staff – something that’s reflected in our consistently outstanding student satisfaction rates.
"The tutors and course leaders take a real interest in the views of the students and conduct meetings with class representatives where all student concerns are discussed. The careers support on offer at BPP is probably one of the best I have seen…the careers team are available for one on one meetings to discuss your CV, career goals, conduct mock interviews and assist you with training contact applications. The general facilities within BPP in London are excellent. There is a large library over three floors as well as a number of computer rooms with full facilities. You are also able to use other BPP buildings so can access other libraries depending on where you are studying. I am really pleased that I chose BPP."
