The BPP Professional Education Group, founded by Alan Brierley, Richard Price and Charles Prior (Brierley, Price and Prior), is a global education provider delivering world-class professional qualifications. The group delivers programmes across the UK, internationally and through innovative online learning platforms. BPP University is part of the BPP Professional Education Group. However, BPP University is a distinct legal entity with its own degree-awarding powers approved by the UK Privy Council.
In September 2007, BPP University made history by becoming the first publicly owned company in the UK to obtain degree awarding powers. This process involved making a detailed application to the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education in the United Kingdom, which acts on behalf of the Privy Council. This application covered all aspects of BPP University’s governance, management, educational provision, resourcing and quality assurance. The Privy Council’s approval of our degree awarding powers and our subsequent status as a University confirmed that BPP University has achieved the standards to be expected from a UK degree awarding body.
In 2012 BPP University received its regular 6 yearly institutional review by the UK QAA. This is the process of quality assurance that all Universities in the UK are subject to and requires each University to produce an action plan to respond to issues raised in the review. The QAA confirmed that BPP University meets the standards expected of a UK degree awarding body and had examples of best practice in the sector.
When you finish your undergraduate studies at BPP University, you will be in an ideal position to start your new career. However, should you wish to progress your studies further, our postgraduate programmes in law, business, banking, finance, management, chiropractic, psychology, dentistry or healthcare will be invaluable in taking your career to the next level. Alternatively, the Professional Qualifications and Professional Development courses on offer by the BPP Professional Education Group will allow you to qualify with a number of professional bodies, such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Chartered Managment Institute (CMI), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Banking Institute (CBI) should you choose one of these professions.
