    Hi everyone

    I am in the midst of applying to do bvc. As it happens, fees isn't a problem because I'm a fully sponsored student. And in regards to TC, I don't intend to practice in England/Wales.

    As both of the big factors are now out of the equation, which BVC providers is the best? My choices are College of Law, BPP & City Uni.

    I'm looking for a place that will make life generally much more comfortable & bearable. Anyone with any experience doing BVC in either of these places,can you pls tell me how the classes are arranged, the study atmosphere & passing the exams. Heard that in CoL it's open book exam while in BPP it's closed book. Not quite sure which one I should go for.

    Any extra info is much appreciated. Thanks!!

    bvc?
    Bar Vocational Course.

    OP, perhaps this'd be better off in the Law forum?

    Why are you doing the BVC in the UK if you don't intend to practice here?

    I'm not certain, but I believe if you intend to use an English law degree to practice in Canada or certain areas of the US you need a qualifying vocational degree as well. That might well be why.
