Access to all materials is available online, anytime through your Personal Study Plan and individual 1:1 Learning Coach support.

By spreading the exam and preparation course fees over a longer time period, the SQE allows you to adapt the pace and costs to your schedule and budgeting needs.

Personalised Learning

Your tailored BARBRI Personal Study Plan (PSP) guides every assignment and activity throughout your entire SQE1 Prep course. Video lectures, workbooks and practice questions build knowledge over time to create a highly effective SQE1 Prep experience. Your PSP delivers the right combination of substance and skills on a flexible schedule. 

ISAAC (Intuitive Study Assistant and Coach) facilitates your BARBRI SQE Prep course and gives it flexibility and a personal touch that matches your individual learning pace.


1:1 support to help you succeed

All SQE Prep students will be assigned a personal Learning Coach, a qualified solicitor who will be mentoring you throughout your course.

Your Learning Coach will schedule personal, bi-weekly check-ins and meetings to see how you are progressing with your studies. They will also conduct livestream workshops, provide tips, and help you with any problem areas, including customising your course, if necessary.

SQE Preparation: Next Steps

The SQE exam is divided into two parts: SQE1 tests a candidate's knowledge and understanding of law through multiple-choice questions. SQE2 tests practical lawyering skills such as client interviewing, attendance notes/legal analysis, advocacy and oral presentation, and legal research/writing/drafting.

Students must take both parts of the SQE, with the exception of those with an LPC or a law degree from another jurisdiction who may qualify for an exemption.
