For the 2021/2022 cycles, the ICCA Bar Course fees are as follows:
This fee is payable upon enrolment for Part One. You will have a 14-day cooling off period, so if for any reason you decide not to proceed with the course within this time you are entitled to a full refund of £1,601.
You must pass the Bar Course Aptitude Test (BCAT) before starting Part One. This is a separate fee and you can find details of this on the Bar Standards Board website. In 2020 the BCAT cost £150 if taken in UK and EU test centres and £170 if taken in the rest of the world.
This means the total fee payable for both parts of the course is £13,481.
A deposit is not required for either Part One or Part Two of the ICCA Bar Course.
We charge the same fees for EU/Overseas students as we do for UK students.
The Part One fee is payable online upon enrolment. Full payment details will be provided to successful applicants.
Students who decide not to proceed with the Part One course within 14 days of enrolment are entitled to a full refund of £1,601. This is in accordance with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
For Part Two, the BSB intake fee of £295 is always payable upon enrolment for Part Two.
The ICCA Part Two fee of £11,585 can then be paid in three ways:
There is a 14 day cooling-off period for Part One. Any student who decides not to proceed with the Part One course within 14 days of enrolment is entitled to a full refund of £1,601. This is in accordance with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
For Part Two, a student leaving before or up to the halfway stage of Part Two will receive a refund of half the ICCA Part Two fee (£5,792.50), but this refund does not include the BSB intake fee of £295.
A student whose registration is terminated in accordance with the ICCA Academic Regulations and related policies and procedures through misconduct or otherwise shall not be entitled to any refund of fees.
Please remember that there will be additional costs to you in taking the ICCA Bar Course which are not ICCA fees. These will include the following:
It is vital that you factor in your living accommodation and travel expenses. Part Two is a face-to-face course, so you will need to attend in person for 20 or 22 weeks in central London (commencing Part Two in March takes 20 weeks and commencing Part Two in September takes 22 weeks).
This means you will need to pay for accommodation in a location from which central London is accessible on a daily basis. You will also have to pay for travel and subsistence during this time.
Please ensure you plan your budget carefully. You can find further information on funding in the FAQs section on the ICCA Bar Course website.
