BPP University Law School is to close its Liverpool base in the summer and will instead relocate students 30 miles away, the school has announced.

In a statement the school said it had undertaken a ‘review of programme delivery’ across its study centres. ‘As a result, the decision has been made to relocate students from the current study centre in Liverpool to our recently upgraded study centre in Manchester,’ it added. The Liverpool centre will close from 30 June.

A spokesperson for the college said its Manchester study centre offers more services, including 'a bigger library and a broader range of electives for students to choose from’. BPP will deduct travel costs from students’ fees.

The Gazette understands there are 37 part-time students studying at Liverpool and 25 students who had accepted a place for September 2018. All students are being supported with alternative options, BPP said.

BPP’s Liverpool branch teaches the Graduate Diploma in Law, the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and a Graduate Diploma in Law. It shares a careers service with BPP Manchester’s centre.

Rebecca Yates, head of law at the school, said ‘BPP are working very closely with the students affected and are ensuring minimal impact occurs. We feel confident that the students will enjoy and benefit from the improved student experience that Manchester study centre provides.’
