ULAW IS FIRST LEADING LAW SCHOOL TO LAUNCH

MONTHLY DIRECT DEBITS FOR FEES


The University of Law (ULaw) is to become the only leading professional law school to allow students to pay fees for full time postgraduate courses by monthly direct debit.

Students enrolling onto the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) this September can spread the cost of their studies by paying in monthly instalments.

ULaw has made the move in response to feedback from students and following the successful introduction of a monthly instalment scheme for part-time postgraduate courses in 2012.

Enrolments onto ULaw’s part-time LPC increased by 12 per cent in 2012/13, even though part-time LPC enrolments nationally decreased by 4 per cent. ULaw’s management team believes that this success can be partially attributed to the flexibility offered by the new monthly instalment scheme.

Also new for 2013/14 is a four-instalment payment scheme for full-time courses. Alternatively students can opt for the existing two-instalment scheme.

Sarah Hutchinson, Vice President (Business Development) at The University of Law said: “The introduction of monthly instalments for our part-time courses last year was extremely well received and our full time students told us that they would also welcome this option.

“We are always looking for new ways of making our training provision as flexible and convenient for our students as possible and we know that finance is a particularly challenging issue in the current climate. We hope that the new flexible payment schemes will bring our high quality legal training within easier reach of a far wider range of prospective law professionals.”

More information about the new instalment schemes is available at www.law.ac.uk/instalments/

The University of Law is the largest provider of professional legal education and training in Europe with centres in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Chester, Guildford, Manchester and York. Previously The College of Law, we were granted university title in November 2012.

We are widely regarded as experts in legal training – all of our tutors and course designers are qualified solicitors or barristers and have practice experience.  We work closely with law firms and chambers of all sizes and exclusively deliver the Legal Practice Course (LPC) to trainees at many of the leading global law firms. In 2013 we will be launching an LL.M LPC, which will award students not only with an LPC but also with an internationally-recognised Master of Laws.

The University is proud of our record of empowering students from all backgrounds to achieve their legal career goals.  We support qualified lawyers throughout the profession with a comprehensive programme of professional development courses and in 2008 we launched our Master’s LL.M programme in professional legal practice.

We also provide the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) to give non-law graduates an entry route into the profession and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for prospective barristers.  

In 2006 we were the first independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers. In September 2012 we launched a two-year undergraduate LL.B law degree focusing on employability and professional legal skills.
