MSc in Law and Finance Partial Scholarships 2017-18
The School of Economics and Finance and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) are offering two partial scholarships worth one third of the tuition fee each to outstanding full time candidates.
What does the scholarship cover? How are they paid?
The partial scholarship covers one third of the tuition fee only in the form of a fee waiver; the partial scholarships do not cover additional course costs (books etc...) or accommodation fees. Partial scholarships are NOT payable directly to successful applicants but are off set against your student fee invoice. The partial scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit, the submitted statement in response to the set question as detailed in the application, and in some cases, financial need and professional/extracurricular achievements.
