    Hey guys, long term lurker, first time poster.

    Does anyone know the procedure for getting a deferral from Middle Temple? I understand that the other Inns stipulate one must have an exceptional circumstance but can't find anything from MT.
    Also, does anyone know the same for the BPTC at BPP and if a deferral affects their scholarships?
    Hey - I don't have the answer to this, but I'd be interested to hear what you find out!

    Audacious - You can get a deferral and your scholarship will follow you, regardless of whether it's F/T or P/T and regardless of location. James Welsh is the best person to speak to - admissions are useless.

    Re: MT Deferrals.

    So I heard back from Sally Yorke and she says that an MT scholarship can be deferred for up to two years and to fill out the prerequisite part of the form that's sent out with the official letter. She didn't mention anything about needing any particular exceptional circumstance or otherwise, but that doesn't mean there doesn't need to be one.

    I'm going to wait to see what the form says before talking to BPP; their BPTC terms and conditions say that a one year deferral is possible but not the circumstances, nor if anything beyond one year is possible or if the their scholarships would follow. Though wannabeebar if definitely right about going straight to James Welsh - admissions are useless.
    I'll keep you all posted!

    Hi - This is a bit irrelevant to the topic, but since people here are mostly current BPTCers it will help if anyone could shed some light on the followings.

    Is anyone currently taking the BPTC at BPP Birmingham this year? Could you share how is it going?
    The centre has just been started in Sept last year and I would really like to know about - the environment, the quality of lectures, student support, ability and attitude of peers in general and etc.

    I am currently holding an offer in London but I cannot convince myself from paying extra £4000 for pretty much the same stuff. I have never been to Birmingham as well, so it will really help if someone could give valuable advice on these.

    Thanks!

    Re: MT Deferrals.
    For what its worth I was told for definite at Inner that anyone can defer a BPTC award for a year and no questions will be asked, seems that this is perhaps standard across all inns.
