Graduate LLB

This programme is exclusively available to BPP University Law School GDL students and alumni. Our online Graduate LLB programme allows you to upgrade your BPP Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) to a full LLB (Hons) degree, by completing extra modules worth 60 credits. If you begin in summer directly after your GDL, you can complete your Graduate LLB in time to start the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in September. Alternatively, you can complete the programme online, in your own time, at your own pace up to seven years after starting your GDL programme.

The Graduate LLB degree is awarded by BPP University.
