University of Law launches monthly fee instalments
This autumn the University of Law (ULaw) will become the first leading professional law school to accept monthly payments of fees for its full-time postgraduate courses.
From September 2013, students enrolled onto ULaw’s Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) will be offered the flexibility and convenience of spreading the cost of their studies by paying via monthly direct debit.
In 2012 ULaw ran a similar monthly instalment scheme for its part-time postgraduate courses and saw a 12% increase in enrolments onto its part-time LPC during 2012/13, despite a 4% decrease in LPC enrolments nationally.
This year ULaw is extending the monthly instalment scheme to its full-time postgrad courses, in response to feedback from students and based on the successful introduction of the monthly instalment scheme for part-time courses.
Also new for 2013/14 is a four-instalment payment scheme for full-time courses. The existing two-instalment scheme will remain an option for students who prefer a shorter payment period.
Sarah Hutchinson, Vice President (Business Development) at The University of Law, says, “We are always looking for new ways to make our training provision as flexible and convenient for our students as possible and we know that finance is a particularly challenging issue in the current climate.
“The introduction of monthly instalments for our part-time courses last year was extremely well received and our full-time students told us that they would also welcome this option. We hope that the new flexible payment schemes will bring our high quality legal training within easier reach of a far wider range of prospective law professionals.”
