The LLM Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded to students in eight countries around the world.

LLM Scholarship: Ghana, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Sri Lanka

To be eligible for this course-fee scholarship, for your final four modules, you must fulfil the following criteria:

  • You must be registered and studying in one of the following countries: Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Nigeria or Russia.
  • You must have completed 12 modules and failed none.
  • Out of those 12 modules you must have successfully completed at least 5 modules (with no failed attempts) within 13 months of your effective registration date.
  • For example, if your registration date is 1 May 2017, you must have completed 5 modules by the end of the May 2018 exam session - either in a single session or spread over two sessions.

Scholarships are granted to those with the best average score across five modules. (It must normally be 60% or above). If you have completed more than five modules within the qualifying period, your average is calculated from your best five marks.

We notify winners by email once the results of the final qualifying exam session have been released.

To access the scholarship, you inform the Postgraduate Laws Office when you wish to register for your final four modules. They will issue a fee credit note for those modules. (This is neither a retrospective award, nor a refund of past modules.)

You will still need to cover any fees that are not paid directly to the University, such as examination centre fees.

As an award holder, we expect you to attempt and complete your final four modules within five examination sessions from your effective date of registration (i.e. 2½ - 3 years). This allows you to maintain some flexibility.

If you do not accomplish this, you may (at the discretion of the Programme Director) be required to pay for the four modules before you are awarded the LLM.
