    Hi everyone,

    I'm 21 and planning to do an LLB degree from UCL/KCL. Previously I was studying Accountancy in a RG university but had to withdraw due to ill health.

    I recently contacted UCL and KCL. Both of them have told me to enrol at Birkbeck's Legal Method (Certificate in Higher Education) programme.

    Will UCL/KCL ever enrol me in their LLB programme if I complete Birkbeck's Legal Method (Certificate in Higher Education)?

    Thanks

    If they told you to do that then presumably yes it would give you a decent shot, it would be incredibly sadistic of them not to.

    You're probably best posting in mature students forum, they'll know more about Access courses and the like.

    Why don't you just email KCL/UCL and ask them?

    Get some absolute clarity - are they saying - if you do this course, you will def be able to get on their LLB - or are they saying you might - or are they saying "we think it would be better if you read laws at Birkbeck"

    It is kind of an Access course - but if you had the A-levels to go to your other University to read Accountancy, I'm not sure exactly what this might be in aid of.

    Im confused by my post here saying "x"

    On another note, I recently found out some Unis will look at me for clearing this year with my current Access.

    They include Coventry, Greenwich, SOAS, Brunel, Westminster and Surrey.

    How they fair in terms of legal progression? Just like an LLB from BPP seems pointless, I fear some of the above may be too! SOAS I need not ask about and would love to go here, but the others??

    Thanks

    You didn't post sorry, I was quoting you to draw your attention to the thread cause I know you were considering a similar thing and probably know more than me about it.

    Errrm not great to average to be honest, Surrey's probably OK. SOAS obviously decent, if unusual course.

    Hi,

    From what I know you need a good distinction on the course to apply to Kings, UCL and LSE, oh and QMU. Most of them only hold 10 spaces for Access students around the same for other alternative entry requirements.

    I thought that may have been the case! :-). Thanks.

    I would be very happy with SOAS but the others I feel could be as bad as going to BPP! Is Greenwich not very well respect for Law?

    I don't really know London unis beyond the big ones, but I've not heard of it mentioned in any discussion of well respected law schools.

    Do you know any student who's been to UCL/KCL from this access course?

    The following member is claiming that she's been to Oxford to study LLB through this course. Don't know how far this is true.

    Ive heard a few people claim this. I have no reason to believe its untrue.

    I do believe that it is far more difficult to get into QMU, LSE, UCL, Kings, Oxbridge for the LLB with an Access or the cert to HE.

    It's relevant to a point I'm making so please do not tell me what I have to do. You do not know how I feel towards BPP personally, so refrain from thinking you do!

    Sorry, the way you have poorly worded your insuring post confused me!

    And no, not a crusade, how pathetic of you to jump on that!

    I've decided against BPP after the terrible customer service I have had from them, ill advice and the fact they let anyone in! I have nothing against BPP but I do not like the sound of their LLB. The structure looks poor and the teaching appears minimal. There's no need to take my decision personally. In my opinion BPPs LLB is pointless and many would agree. I stand to be corrected!

    Forum User knows more Law than pretty much anyone else on here, including various Cantabs. If this is thanks to BPP then it's going to be pumping out very sought after grads in the not too distant future, however suspect he may be an anomaly.

    I'm not sure what an insuring post is so I can make neither head nor tail of the first sentence.

    This thread had nothing to do with BPP at all. The original poster did not mention BPP at any stage. The first person to mention them was you, and your comment about them was both negative and entirely irrelevant to the question you were asking. So I am sure you can see how it seems like a 'crusade' against them.

    Fair enough that you think that the structure is poor and the teaching is minimal, obviously I disagree. I look forward to proving you wrong about the course being pointless.
