    Hi guys,

    I'm starting the LPC with MA in Business at BPP this year. I was wondering, has anyone undertaken this course before. If so, how was it assessed and what did you think of the pace of the course? And is there any general advice you could offer?

    Thanks!

    P.S Is it true that we can be examined on stuff not in lectures? At uni, this was never the case - but is it the case with the LPC?

    hi am currently on it and about to start stage 2. not sure how it is for full time but i suspect the same pace as my part time evening mode. It is fast but not difficult, the information is easy enough to understand but its the volume of it. as long as you keep up with the classes and consolidate as you go along as there is little time to go back over things at the end before the exams start, which are very frequent. On the PT ode i have exams almost every month bar a few months when the modules are longer. Not sure what mode you are planning on but the biggest tip i can give is to keep up and not let yourself fall behind and if you don't get something tackle it straight away don't think "dw i'll come back to this".

    The LPC course itself is actually pretty good, i've never had a class cancelled and (touch wood) so far everything has run to schedule. The tutors are really nice and very knowledgeable about their subject.

    For the MA part you get sent a survey early on and if you say you want to do it then you get access to the material so you can do it at any time (i'm doing mine at the end of the course so I have time to do the work for the classes and don't have time to do any extra work.)

    hope that helps a bit, if you have some more specific questions i'd be happy to try and help

    Thank you for the response. I begin in September on the same course and was really settled by your answer.

    I was reading the pre-reading packs and they make it seem that for modules such as litigation we will need to remember concepts from our undergraduate days in detail: like land law, tort law and criminal offences, for example. How true is this?

    Many thanks

    Yes included in the LPC price but there is only a choice out of 2:
    MA (LPC with business)
    or
    LLM in Professional Legal Practice

    Assessments are dissertation / long coursework based

    Ok thanks.

    I assume it makes diddly squat difference to employability but cool to have I guess. Although not sure I would claim to have a 'masters' after doing that - it's not all too specialised if you can just take an extra assessment to get it?
