    Hi Guys, I am looking to apply in different universities but the BPP MSc Finance realy appeals to me.. But I am really strugling finding some reviews on it. I tried to contact some current students I found on some social networks, but no answer so far..

    So, for you who might live in London, any advice/opinion on that school?

    I don't know first hand but I think its reputation for vocational courses is pretty good. It isn't the respected academic institution that the top (or even top 20) universities are but it isn't bad. I know its quite big on Law and Accountancy stuff and doesn't have a bad reputation.

    All depends on your background and what you want to go into?

    Well as mentioned earlier, I'd go for their MSc Finance, as it provides a CFA training during the last term.. After graduation, my goal would be to get into a graduate trainee program at UBS (or sth similar elsewhere..)
    My backgrounds? Studied management/finance in Luxembourg, aswell as in London for a few months..

    true, so.. last month, I booked a flight and went to London to visit them! From what I was able to see, it is very different than what you would expect from a "normal" university. The rooms were small, with maximum 40 seats. I was able to see that most of the teaching is spent in small groups, which should IMO make the whole learning more efficient. The facilties looked like new, staff seemed to be friendly as well..
    what programm would you be interested in?

    i am interested in msc finance...but there is hardly any info...but from wat i cud gather....BPPs postgraduate program is new... however it is pleasing to see that amonsgt the professional qualification , like ACCA, CIMA , ICAEW, it is top class... the law school is prettyu reputable as well....my aim is getting into a big 4 Accountancy firm so my target is a degree relevant to the field of accounancy...the closest one is finance msc....

    i did mail BPP abt their career fairs and their garduate prospects....didnt get a reply...probably bec i mailed to 3 depts the admission and 2 more....

    i came across an article in the Guadian ...was abt BPP and Carl Lygo its CEO....leaving out the issue abroad regading litigation on the apollo group...the accountancy circle does treat BPP in good respects.....the issue highlighted in the article was that the university and college union were unhappy wen BPP was awarded degree issuing powers....and according to the CEO, they are responsible for creating an atmosphere of misinformation.....dont know what to beleive who toi beleive....some say its good some hav no info....

    i think the general atmosphere in UK is that there is shift of education from unis to coleges which ppl can better afford....so when colleges like BPP enter the university biz of giving out degrees....its a direct threat to the existing unis...and dude i dont know wat a uni and college union is? ....

    my aim is to get into a big 4 accopuntacy firm... so wud like to know whether BPPs msc can get me there....

    u shud check out the following links in the next post

    i think that is ok and is not too bad. if you could go in a university like lse, cass, imperial then is better. but is still a good choice.

    i think i know the article you're talking about. But the thing is, after doing their assessment test last week, I was now told that I got accepted.
    Plus, while beeing there I talked with some people who were doing the msc finance, and they were quite happy about it! "challenging" was their opinion..
    so i guess i ll go for it

    1. I would choose the College of law over BPP. BPP admissions officers are smooth talkers, at the initial stage they are quite helpful and nice but once you've registered it's a totally different scenario. I am currently studying with them and its one of my biggest regrets. I and a few others are looking at transferring to another university.
      I just wish I had listened to some of the reviews I found here and not been blinded by the other reviews which in hindsight was most definitely written by their PR staff.
      There are numerous problems from tutors leaving mid term times, administration is shambolic, some of the staff are VERY condescending and don't listen to students... I could go on and on.
      There is a reason why there is hardly any reviews about them apart from newspaper articles and TSR considering the fact that THOUSANDS of students have gone through their doors.
      Their facebook page doesn't really have that many reviews neither does their Instagram page.
      I hope this helps but there will still be some like me who will still chose them hoping for the best and end up getting the worst!
      P.s It'll be great if other people share their experiences so others don't end up being in our situations

    I completely agree!
    I am doing accountancy with them for the last 2 years now. The tutors are great but when it comes to the Uni experience..it's a joke. Plus, the Admin! I better not say anything.. It's so awful that I am going to another uni this year. So, AVOID. I regret so much as an overseas student!!! I am so frustrated! I wasted my time as well as money.
