SQE Funding

Take advantage of a variety of funding opportunities available with the SQE

Discover all available funding opportunities

At BARBRI we’re committed to helping people from all backgrounds get the opportunity to enjoy a successful and rewarding career in the legal sector. We wholeheartedly support the introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) to reduce existing barriers and strengthen the diversity and representation of those working in law.

However, we appreciate that even with the SQE exam improving access, you may not be in a position to fully self-fund your studies. Committed to providing opportunities for all, we have developed a scholarship programme to ensure that you get the chance at SQE success, whatever your personal circumstances. We have also partnered with student loan companies to offer additional options for funding your SQE qualification journey with BARBRI.

BARBRI Bridges

BARBRI Bridges is a social mobility fund developed to help increase diversity, inclusion and accessibility in the legal sector. We work with law firms, charities and universities to achieve our goal and have so far committed over £75,000 across the industry.

Our BARBRI scholarship programme is part of this initiative aiming to offer you a chance at SQE success, whatever your personal circumstances.

We’re proactively growing our partnerships to bolster the four key pillars of BARBRI Bridges which include:

  • Digital Innovation and Transformation
  • General Public Interest
  • Equality Diversity and Inclusion
  • Social, Economic and Environmental

Your SQE funding options

There are three SQE scholarship options available across various course start dates which cover both partial and full funding. BARBRI's SQE scholarships provide students with opportunities to fund their studies on the basis of merit or public interest engagement.

We have also partnered with student loan financing companies to offer you options for financing your SQE studies. The application process for each is simple and, depending on its outcome, can cover both BARBRI SQE Prep course and Kaplan exam fees.
