Description

Personal Study Plan

Your tailored, flexible online BARBRI Personal Study Plan (PSP) guides every assignment and activity throughout your entire BARBRI SQE1 Prep course through an integrated Active Adaptive Legal Learning process.

Video lectures, workbooks and practice questions build knowledge over time to create a highly effective SQE1 Prep experience. For both online home study and blended classroom courses, your PSP delivers the right combination of substance and skills on a flexible schedule. All materials are recorded and available online through your PSP.

Recorded Video Lectures

The teaching materials and workshops are wholly examination-driven. They are carefully crafted to convey what you need to know in each subject. Materials are recorded and available to each candidate online throughout the programme.

Multiple-Choice Exam Expertise

BARBRI has more than 50-years’ experience in training candidates to master multiple-choice exam question techniques and skills. During your SQE1 Prep course, you will practice thousands of multiple-choice questions to master the techniques and outcomes tested on the SQE1 exam. Learning and practice question sets build in difficulty over time and utilise spaced repetition to boost learning and retention.

1:1 Learning Coaches

All SQE Prep students will be assigned an individual, personal Learning Coach. This is a qualified solicitor who will be mentoring you throughout your exam preparation. He or she will schedule personal, bi-weekly check-ins or meetings to see how you are progressing with your studies as well as conduct livestream workshops, provide tips, and help you with any problem areas including customising your course if necessary.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
