Our LLB (Hons) [Distance Learning] programme is designed for UK and international students that want to study for a Qualifying Law Degree at one of the top Law Schools in the UK but can’t attend regular face-to-face sessions at our study centres. Our Distance Learning option uses BPP University’s innovative online classroom to deliver the programme. It is a structured yet flexible programme that draws on our 14-year experience in delivering distance learning programmes to give you the option to study full-time or part-time.
This is a skill-based, practice-focused degree that is designed to give you the professional and transferable skills for your career as well as the higher cognitive skills required at Honours level.
You’ll learn how to apply core employability skills in a legal context. In particular, you will develop the ability to:
Undertake legal research
Identify legal issues and put forward appropriate solutions
Analyse cases and statutes
Construct legal arguments
Our LLB (Hons) [Distance Learning] programme has three start dates each year; September, January and May. You can study full-time over two or three years. Alternatively, if you wish to combine study with work or other commitments, you can choose to study on a part-time basis, and complete your degree within four to six years.
Please note – If at any point during your programme you switch from full-time/part-time to mixed-mode or online study, you may no longer be eligible for government funding. Also if you change the speed of your part-time study, you will be required to notify the Student Loan Company as changing modes or the speed at which you complete your studies will have fee or student funding implications.
For those that want a flexible approach to their study, without any compromise on quality, technology has made it possible for you to study your degree anywhere and (almost) anytime with BPP University’s online classroom.
The Distance Learning programme is delivered fully online through a mix of lectures, small group tutorials and associated online learning materials and provides student-centred learning through the use of synchronous online tutorials. You will receive a structured study planner for each year of study to enable you to plan and chart your progress throughout your degree and structured study guides for the foundation modules. You will also be given a programme of formative assessments and regular feedback.
Our Distance Learning option still provides a range of support and the opportunity for group study through:
Online office hours via online classrooms and monitored discussion boards
Assigned and grouped online classes for students as part of the teaching experience
Grouped online space for study groups to assist their members with development and progress on the programme
Each term is framed by ‘Headstart’ and ‘Revision’ sessions and broken up by a Reading Week in the middle. This allows you to ease your way into study and to study intensively before examinations. It also facilitates a break at the midway point of each term and gives you time to consolidate your studies and reflection.

UK students applying for our Undergraduate courses can apply for Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans to help cover the cost of tuition fees and living costs whilst studying (subject to eligibility). Tuition Fee Loans are also available for EU students.
You can apply for a tuition fee loan up to a maximum of £6,000 (full-time) or £4,500 (part-time) per academic year. For students from Northern Ireland, the maximum tuition fee loan available is £3,805 per academic year.
Students who intend to study our two-years full-time accelerated degrees should note that BPP University’s fee per year is £9000, which is above the maximum loan of £6,000 per year available. Students would therefore need to self-fund the difference of £3,000 each year.
