On your mission to becoming a barrister, I've read you do:

1) 3 years university
2) BVC
3) pupillage

What's the postgraduate course for Law? Is that also BVC?

You do not have to do a postgraduate course as such, if you do not want to. BVC is a qualifying one year course for barristers and you embark on it upon graduating from university.

Thankyou very much - so where does the postgraduate course lead you to? Solicitor?

I am no expert, however, as far as I know, you can embark on a postgraduate course if you'd like to specialize in an area of law or if it intrigues you in one way or another and you would like to learn more, or if you want to go into academia. Solicitors do the LPC, Barristers the BVC. Although some of them choose to do postgraduate course nonetheless, however, it is not compulsory.

The academic postgraduate qualification for law is either the LLM or the Oxford BCL. The vocational postgraduate qualification is the LPC (solicitor route) and the BVC (barrister route), or, if you aren't a law graduate, the GDL/CPE. Any course which, as an entry stipulation, requires you to have an undergraduate degree can be termed a 'postgraduate qualification'.
