Key facts about the SQE

The course is designed to make your learning experience as smooth as possible. It can be undertaken from any location and follows a clear, structured Personal Study Plan (PSP) which assigns you the required work for each week. It also tracks your performance and adjusts the study material based on your pace of study and scores. So, you will always know whether you are on track. In addition to this, your personal mentor will check in regularly to ensure that you are supported. Check out the SQE1 Prep course sample materials here for further insight into the course.

Despite the intuitive nature of the course, we appreciate that anything can happen during your studies. Your personal mentor would be available to discuss any such circumstances or concerns. You will also have the option to defer your SQE1 Prep course to another course duration to enable you to proceed with the studies. You can find out more information about that here.

Your BARBRI Guarantee

Should you not pass on your first attempt, we also offer a BARBRI Guarantee. This means that you would be able to join any other SQE1 Prep course for free within 12 months of the original result date. This includes switching to any other course duration which would be more suitable for you.
