  • Give the project a chance and ignore Fat Cat Savage and all his claptrap. We don't all have to go to the College of Law.

    And BPP is not the UK's only private university - there is also the University of Buckingham.

  • so much for social mobility - the brightest students just as long as they have 18k a year to spare.

    Aren't we supposed to be moving away from the elitest law firms of the past?

    Wow, 2 private universities, that is -impressive-.

    Not.

    I wish him well in this.

  • This is NOT a university. It's not even a university college, it's a college offering tuition for the University of London external degree programme. There are hundreds of such institutions around the world, this one just happens to be fronted by media celeb dons. I'm all for giving it a chance, but the Lawyer should research its articles more carefully.

  • This article is full of silly mistakes.

    Richard Dawkins? Really? AND Ronald Dworkin? Surely not.

    Also, the University of Buckingham is a private university and has been so long before BPP became one.

  • Seems sensible - a 2 year course is much cheaper than a 3 year course when you consider living costs. If a "normal" university course is going to be about £9,000 a year in tutiion fees for each of the three years soon then this seems like a bargain!!... perhaps I am missing something here....

  • Savage and the rest are jealous - they too would like to charge big bucks like this if they could. This marks the start of the creep (upwards) of the cost of fees.

  • The first 25 students to enrol on the CoL degree can take comfort in knowing that ALL of their fees are needed to keep Prof Savage in the luxury his £440k salary package buys. It will be interesting to see how the (non-charity) NCH senior salary packages compare with these from the (charitable!!!) CoL.
