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 Knoma and Lendwise. 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?

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.

How it works with Lendwise

Check eligibilty

You can apply if you are an existing or prospective BARBRI student and a UK resident (any nationality) in full-time employment.


You can apply online and all-year round. Only a “soft” credit search is carried out (does not affect credit score). The interest rate offered will depend on overall applicant profile.

Application processing

Lendwise reverts within 2 business days and successful applicants upload necessary documents

On successful application

Tuition fees are sent directly to BARBRI. No fees or penalties are applied for early repayment of the loan or making overpayments, so student is not locked in.
