    Hi all!

    I've got a training contract and I'll be doing my LPC part time alongside it, and I think I want to go to BPP in Holborn. I'm now wondering what my best option is:

    -Do my training contract part time (so it will take a little longer) and do the LPC on Mondays and Fridays.
    -Do my training contract full time but do the LPC on every other Saturday/every third weekend.

    Does anyone have any experience doing the part time LPC alongside a full time job? How did you find it?



    I know someone who did the LPC part time whilst working full time. I think you will be very busy doing it this way.

    However, do what you feel most comfortable with.

    I study the LPC part time whilst working full time as a paralegal (though my firm have given me a TC).

    I find it hard as a paralegal doing it part time whilst working full time. Im at BPP, I do 2 evenings a week but the prep means you're looking at on average 16 hours a week, plus exams. I didn't realise it would be this hard!

    If I could, I would do part time LPC, part time work. I don't have that option due to personal circumstances (mortgage etc.).

    BPP are generally really flexible with you though- theres some times I can't go on an evening and they let me go to the Saturday classes. They are sympathetic to part time students too, I just wouldn't advise full time work where you have a choice.

    I also find that doing the evening class means it is more fluid/structured. The danger with a saturday class is that you have 3 sessions of 2 hours each, every other week. Which means students cram their prep. Doing it more regularly can make it more manageable
