BARBRI SQE Prep student loan funding
Find out what SQE funding options are available for you.
Supporting you through your SQE journey
BARBRI strives to offer student support in every aspect of the qualification journey. We offer flexible payment plans, SQE scholarship options and trusted financing partners. Lack of financial support should not be an obstacle to your access to the legal profession.
We have partnered with Lendwise and Future Finance. These student loan companies provide you with options on how to secure SQE funding. Both companies offer students financial support throughout their studies. You can apply for a student loan with either company to cover the entire costs of your SQE1 and SQE2 Prep courses, as well as the Kaplan exam fees.
Any loan is based on the individual meeting the lending criteria. BARBRI recommends you read any loan agreement carefully before entering into a contract. Each student’s repayment schedule and interest rates may vary.
Who is Lendwise?
Lendwise is a specialist loan provider dedicated to education finance for UK residents who are looking to fund their professional qualifications with leading course providers.
Their mission statement is to enable access to higher education and professional training with a personalised and transparent financing solution. Lendwise is authorised and regulated by the FCA and a member of Responsible Finance. It is rated "Excellent" by students on TrustPilot.
How can Lendwise help you with your SQE funding?
Lendwise aims to reduce the funding gap with its low-cost and flexible student loans. This offers an SQE funding opportunity for aspiring solicitors who have the merit and desire to pursue the SQE, but don’t have all the funds. They do so through their affordable and flexible private student loan.
They analyse a student’s holistic profile. This includes future earnings potential, rather than focusing on credit scores only. Interest rates are personalised and fixed for the entire duration of the loan, so a borrower knows the amount of each repayment in advance. This allows for better financial budgeting. A Lendwise Loan operates fully online, as well as over the phone.
