Confirmation and registration

Everything you need to know on how to confirm your place and register online.

What do I need to do to confirm my place?

Once you have accepted your place you will need to provide evidence that you meet the conditions of your offer before you will be invited to register. If you are an international student and require a Tier 4 visa it is important you do this as early as possible as you cannot apply for a visa until we have proof that you meet the entry conditions.

Firstly, please ensure you have accepted the offer online (via the website through which you applied for the course) as well as returned the acceptance form and paid the deposit.

Then you need to do the following:

  1. Send us a copy of your full LLB or GDL results transcript showing you have achieved the conditions set out in your offer letter as soon as it is available and by 3 August 2018 for international students or 28 August 2018 for home/EU students.
  2. Provide us with evidence of Inn Membership (ideally either a scan or photocopy of your membership card or letter from the Inn confirming membership) as soon as it is available. Please note that the last date to apply for Inn membership is generally the last working day of May (check with your Inn to be sure).
  3. Pass the BCAT and send evidence of doing so by the dates mentioned above. You will be given confirmation you have passed at the test centre. You should email a copy of this to us.

If you are undertaking your LLB/GE LLB or GDL at The City Law School you do not need to provide evidence of your results. We will, of course, obtain these directly.

What happens at online registration?

Online registration is scheduled to open in early August 2018. Once online registration has opened and you have met all of the conditions of your offer you will receive an automated email from City inviting you to register for the course online. Please note that you cannot register online until you have received this email as this will give you the unique user ID and password which you require to login.

Online registration is a relatively straightforward process. You will be asked to confirm course details and personal details (full name, address, date of birth etc.). You will also be prompted to pay the first instalment of your fees if you have not already done so. You do not have to complete online registration all at once, you can return to it later, however please ensure that it is completed before Registration Day, which will be 12th September for part-time students and 14th September for full-time students.

When you have successfully completed the online registration process you will receive a Registration Certificate. Please print this and bring it with you to Registration Day. Please note that you will not be a registered student of City until you have completed both online and in-person registration.

Start date

In-person registration for the full-time BPTC will take place on Friday 14 September 2018.

In person registration for the part-time BPTC will take place on the evening of Wednesday 12 September 2018.

In late August/early September you will receive an invitation to in-person registration with your specified time and giving you details of the events taking place on this date. At registration you will also receive the first set of your materials for Term 1.

Teaching on the full-time course will commence on Monday 17 September 2018, whilst teaching on the part-time course will commence on Wednesday 12 September 2018 You will receive your timetable for the first week by email along with your invitation to registration in late August/early September.

Your timetable for Term 1 will be released in the first week of the course. Please note that it is a Bar Standards Board requirement that you are taught in tutorial groups of 12 (6 for Advocacy); this means we cannot finalise your group and, therefore, your personal timetable, until we know exactly who has registered.
