Kaplan launches partnership with Pearson VUE to deliver computer-based QLTS exam for overseas lawyers.
Global education company Kaplan has entered into a new partnership with computer-based testing (CBT) leader Pearson VUE to deliver the first part of the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) exam globally.
Kaplan is the sole authorised provider for the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) of the QLTS assessments. They provide a route for lawyers from other jurisdictions and barristers of England and Wales to become solicitors of England and Wales. The QLTS comprises two exams: the Multiple Choice Test (MCT) and the Objective Structure Clinical Examination (OSCE). Until now candidates have had to travel to London to take the exams. But now Kaplan, in partnership with Pearson VUE, will run the MCT test online and worldwide. Candidates will still have to travel to London to take the OSCE.
Locations will include: London and other UK centres, mainland Europe, USA and Asia.
