How to Apply for a Postgraduate Course

There are two main ways to apply for our postgraduate courses.


You can apply for a place on the following courses through the Central Applications Board (LawCAB):

  • GDL Full-time
  • LPC Full-time and Accelerated
  • MA Law Full-time

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

  • Students on the January GDL Full-time cannot join the BPC in September of the same year because the Bar Standards Board requires students to have all their exam results before commencing the BPC. They can commence our BPC in the following year on confirmation of a successful completion of the 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 BPC in the following year.
