Scholarship for London part of studies (Starting January 2017)
The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) is offering one full scholarship for the Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) for the London part of studies. The offer is open to all students who have received an unconditional offer to study on the programme, AND will also have successfully passed all the required elements from SMU to progress to QMUL.
All applications will be assessed on the basis of academic merit, financial need and the submitted personal statement in response to the set questions as detailed in the application form.
The selection process will be completed in two phases; in the shortlisting phase, students holding a full-time offer, may apply for the scholarship worth £14,000 by completing this form and submitting it, with a CV and copies of transcripts. The application should be received NO LATER THAN 1pm (13.00 hours) GMT on 2 June 2016. The shortlisted applicants will be contacted in June 2016. Applicants who have not submitted their complete scholarship application by this date will not be considered for funding.
In the second phase of the selection process, the shortlisted applicants, who have successfully completed the SMU part of the programme and who progress to QMUL, will be considered for the scholarship. The successful candidate will be notified in December 2016.
For the successful candidate the sum of £14,000 will be deducted from tuition fees payable to Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). S/he may be asked to assist with marketing events such as postgraduate open evenings and/or web/video student profiles.
Please note that scholarships cannot be deferred.
