The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is a single, national licensing examination that all aspiring solicitors will take before qualifying into England and Wales. If you hold a degree in any discipline from any recognised jurisdiction you will be eligible for the SQE.
We offer three course durations for SQE1.
The first option is our Flexible 40-week course and is most suitable for students without an English or Welsh law degree, those working full-time or overseas qualified lawyers.
The second option is the Accelerated 20-week course which can be done full-time or part-time, depending on availability or level of familiarity of the assessed subjects.
The third option is an Intensive 10-week course and is only suitable for law graduates with the ability and opportunity to study intensively and full-time.
The BARBRI SQE course allows you to study when and where you study best over the duration of the course session you choose. While your study time, days and location are extremely flexible, you should plan on spending the recommended hours per week over the relevant course session.
There are certain live sessions in each course, but these are recorded and available to watch on demand if students can’t make them or want to re-watch.
All course lengths cover the same materials but at different speeds/hours per week.
The Flexible 40-week part-time course is 10-12 hours per week of study, and we recommend 1 hour of study a day with 1 full day of study on the weekends.
The Focused 20-week part-time course is 20 hours per week of study, and we recommend 3 hours of study per day over the 7-day week period.
Finally, the Accelerated 10-week full-time course will require 40 hours per week of study and is recommended for recent law graduates who can dedicate the time and study intensively.
