    Hello!

    Last year I graduated with a BSc Psychology with a mid 2:1. I have been increasingly interested in a career in law as a solicitor and the GDL route seems like the best option. I'm having a little trouble selecting where to study. Right now I am looking at UoL (Bristol/London/Exeter), BPP (Bristol/London), the University of Westminster and others. I'm leaning a bit more towards the Bristol courses due to the cost of living in London being high and being closer to family. But I am finding it hard to find much feedback on the courses offered in Bristol.

    I am hoping to study part-time over the course of 2 years. I work part-time from home and I am hoping that I should more or less be able to fund myself this way.

    I would appreciate any feedback and recommendations. Thank you!

    Thank you for your reply. I do see the benefits of an LLB as from what I have read the GDL seems to cover just the minimum in comparison. Also like you said the LLB recognised abroad. I'm just a little hesitant as if I were to do an LLB part time with senior status it seems to be around 4 years? I'm also having a little trouble finding out whether the application deadline has passed for LLB courses, but I will contact a few providers tomorrow.

    If the deadline has not passed, I may consider taking a full-time LLB with senior status.

    I have another question I have if anyone can provide any insight. Should I end up taking the GDL, is there any good reading material I can go through for now? I have come into a few 'study notes' such as gdlanswered/yourgdl, would they only be helpful to those currently attending classes?
