    Same as the title.

    If I want to start my BPTC in 2017 then when do I need to apply for it? Am I correct in thinking that applications open in January 2017 and that BCAT will open in April 2017, for the student aiming to start in Sept/Oct 2017?

    Or do you have apply a year earlier (as I have been informed by someone)?

    If you are applying for Sep 2017.

    You need to apply in Jan 2017.

    Then you need to apply on: https://www.barsas.com/

    The BCAT can be done in between the dates you apply and you start the BPTC. Don't leave it too late and choose a good place to do it.

    I recommend NLS or BPP London.
