      Note for students applying for the January GDL Full-Time 

      Some exams for the January GDL Full-time are taken in September, this has the following impact on progression to our BPTC and LPC courses:

      • Students on the January GDL Full-time cannot join the BPTC in September of the same year because the Bar Standards Board requires students to have all their exam results before commencing the BPTC. They can commence our BPTC in the following year on confirmation of a successful completion of our GDL.
      • Students from the EEA on the January GDL Full-time can join the September start of the LPC in the same year while awaiting the results of their September exams. Please note that this option is not available to students outside the EEA due to visa requirements. Alternatively students can await confirmation of their successful completion of the GDL and join the LPC or BPTC in the following year.
