Kent University Law School recently announced its acceptance of applications for scholarships on its taught LLM program. Students who are currently applying for the University LLM program that starts September 2018 and January 2019 can now apply for the different scholarships and other financial support offered by the Law School.
Kent Law School’s taught LLM program lasts one year and may be taken at its Canterbury campus in either the fall or spring. Two scholarships are currently offered:
- Taught Master's Overseas Scholarship
- Taught Master's Home/EU Scholarship
Applications to either of the two scholarships will be accepted until 19 March 2018 and are awarded based on academic excellence. The Taught Master’s Home/EU Scholarships cover full tuition fees, which amounts to £7,210 if to be based on last academic year’s rate. The Taught Master's Overseas Scholarships come in two modes: one that covers only the overseas tuition rate and one that includes both tuition fee and living expenses. The tuition fees for the academic year 2017-2018 for overseas students fee were £14,670 with living expenses of £14,553.
LLM students awarded with either of the two scholarships will become Kent Law School’s LLM Scholars and may gain the opportunity of becoming LLM Ambassadors.
LLM candidates who either come from or have taken an undergraduate degree in Thailand, Nigeria, or Kenya are also offered the Kent LLM Student Awards. This serves to support LLM students from the mentioned countries with an automatic tuition fee discount of £2,500. No application deadline for this award is imposed.
Besides the foregoing scholarships for the taught LLM program, there are also various funding and financial aid packages provided to students seeking to take postgraduate and LLM research degrees at Kent Law School. Aside from the scholarships the Law School provides, Kent University also provides in excess of £9 million in funding for all deserving postgraduate students.
