Law Bursaries and Scholarships

The University does have a small number of bursaries for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. Applications for the Desiman Scholarship for part-time Law are open until 18 May 2018. There are also three other categories of Scholarship that applicants to the Law School should be aware of.

International law scholarship

This is a scholarship worth 25% of the LLB International fees. Those eligible are applicants:

  • for LLB programmes;
  • who have to pay International fees (principally non-EU students); and
  • who already have a good first degree (such as a first class or upper second class degree, or what we would assess to be the equivalent such as GPA of 3.3 (B+) or higher based on a maximum GPA of 4 (A+) (depending on your university’s grading scale)).

Any applicant who satisfies the eligibility criteria will automatically be considered for an award of the scholarship. There is no need to make a separate application. Note however that this scholarship is a discretionary award rather than an automatic one. A scholarship can only be offered to applicants who are offered a place to study on one of the LLB programmes. Any such offer of a place to study will make clear if a scholarship is also being offered. Any awards are subject to abiding by the University’s rules and regulations. The University reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship if a student’s academic progress while at the University is considered by the University to be unsatisfactory.

At the 2018/19 fee levels, this scholarship would reduce the annual tuition fee from £17,400 to £13,050 (based on a September 2018 / January 2019 start). This scholarship is of particular interest to applicants from jurisdictions where law is usually a postgraduate subject, like Canada, the US, and India.

Home scholarship

This is a scholarship worth £2,000 per annum. To be eligible, an applicant must fall into one of two categories:

  • be a high achiever, with AAB at A-levels (or their equivalent) but excluding General Studies

or

  • be resident in Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire or Northamptonshire

At the 2018/19 fee levels, this would reduce the annual tuition fee from £12,600 to £10,600 (based on a September 2018 / January 2019 start).

A student that does not fall into either category may still qualify for a bursary of £1,100 per annum. Find out more.

LLM scholarship

This is a scholarship worth 33% or 25% of the LLM fees. Those eligible are

  • for 33%, those with a 1st class LLB from Buckingham
  • for 25% those with a 2.1 LLB from Buckingham

At the 2017/18 International tuition fee levels, this would reduce the total LLM tuition fee from £12,490 to £8,368 and £9,367 respectively. For 2018/19 Home tuition fees, this would reduce the total LLM tuition fee from £7,600 to £5,092 and £5,700 respectively.  This scholarship is of particular interest to applicants looking to complete an LLB and an LLM in three years.

These are the minimum eligibility requirements and the University reserves the right not to award the scholarship or withdraw it, if a student’s performance is not, in the opinion of the University, satisfactory.
