Worth the value of four modules, the LLM scholarships are awarded to students with high average scores in six countries around the world.

LLM Scholarship

To be eligible for these course-fee scholarships, you must fulfil the following criteria:

  • You must be a registered and studying in one of the following countries: Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Nigeria or Russia.
  • You must have successfully completed at least five modules (with no failed attempts) within 13 months of your effective registration date.
  • For example, if this date is 1 May 2016, you must have completed five modules by the end of the June 2017 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 scores.

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.
