Solicitors Qualifying Exam preparation

The Law School has partnered with a global legal education provider, BARBRI , to offer our students and alumni a comprehensive preparation programme for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE). This partnership creates a pathway to qualification as a solicitor and means that you will benefit from BARBRI's industry-leading legal education to prepare to pass the SQE.

The SQE Prep courses will begin at The University of Manchester from Summer 2021, in preparation for the first SQE exams in November 2021. They are available to both law graduates and those with a non-legal background.

We will be offering the prep courses at least twice per year on a full-time and part-time basis to support those working alongside their studies.
