This is the second of the two assessments you must pass to complete your QLTS.

  • This course is taught online with access to resources and tutors.
  • Exams take place globally at designated test centres.
  • Unless you are granted an exemption, you must pass the MCT before taking the OSCE.
  • This course meets the needs of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which decides who can practice law in England and Wales. It has been designed by experts.
    Our learning objective: to give you the knowledge, preparation and confidence to pass your assessments and to put you decisively on the path to practicing law in England and Wales.

    Our QLTS is taught in Standard and Plus packages.

    Plus gives expertise and personal support to students who want exam/assessment practice and who value unlimited tutor support.

    Standard is for those who are confident in their exam techniques but who need to specialist knowledge to pass the QLTS, which is comprised of two parts: MCT and OSCE.
    Our approach at Law Training Centre is to use a blend of learning. This means:

  • Expert tutors. We use lawyers to train lawyers.
  • Best possible online learning systems and resources.
  • Individual student plans.

  • Please note you may also be exempt from having to study certain topics within the OSCE. This will be decided by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). For more on how this works please see QLTS course requirements.
