The name of BPP University originated from its founders, Alan Brierley, Richard Price and Charles Prior. It was first established in 1976 as Brierley Price Prior, a firm that provided exam training to accountancy students. Its Law School was founded in 1992. BPP gained its degree-awarding powers in 2005 and was given university status in 2013.
Today, it is known as the "University of Professions" being the only university in UK solely dedicated to business and professions, such accountancy. It also received the honor of being the Best Higher Education (institution) in the UK, awarded by the Education Investor Magazine.
In the 25 years of BPP Law School's experience in providing professional legal qualifications, it has become one of UK's largest law schools. It offers various postgraduate programs including LLM degrees.
