BPP College - Fees for legal course rise by 10%

March 13, 2008

The first profit-making private company to obtain degree-awarding powers has confirmed that it will increase fees for its postgraduate legal practice course by 10 per cent, to £11,550, for 2008-09. Peter Crisp, chief executive of BPP College, said that the fees for the course, which teaches the practical application of law, reflected the "value we place on employing the best teaching staff". The College of Law, BPP's main rival, is raising fees by 5 per cent to £10,340. But Oxford Brookes University, which recently took over the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice (OxILP), has cut fees by 2 per cent to £8,900. Julie Brannan, director of OxILP, said: "There are cost savings associated with the move to Oxford Brookes' Headington Hill Hall site, and because we recognise that the legal practice course is a significant financial investment, we feel it is important to pass these savings on to our students."
