Semester in London Bursaries
The School of Law is offering two Semester in London Bursaries – one from the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) and the other from the Department of Law - each worth £3,000.
You must have an offer of study for the Semester in London Programme before you apply for the bursary. You should therefore apply as early as possible. Students who have not completed their application by 7 June 2013 will not be considered for a bursary. Find out how to apply for a Semester in London Bursary.
We welcome independent applications from students from overseas universities for the Semester in London (formly known as the Texas Associate Programme).
We have a long tradition of welcoming overseas students who wish to incorporate academic study at Queen Mary into their home institutions’ academic programmes, normally for one semester, from September to December. Students have the opportunity to attend a selection of law classes from our prestigious LLM programme and receive credits towards their home degree.
Our Semester in London programme started with the University of Texas in 1985. The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) continues to have a formal agreement with the University of Texas, USA and with the Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany.
Students from other universities are welcome to apply but must get approval from their home institution first to ensure that the programme is suitable. Students must also have a suitable academic background.
In previous years we have welcomed independent students from Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, University of California and the College of William and Mary, University of Florida from the USA and University of Sao Paulo and PUC-Minas University, Brazil, University of Navarro, Spain, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands.

I came to Queen Mary, University of London in fall of 2012, during my third year at Harvard Law School, where my primary interest was intellectual property law. My semester at Queen Mary enriched my studies with a more international and practical focus. Queen Mary offers a variety of courses in intellectual property law, internet, information and privacy law, and e-commerce law, taught by a diverse set of knowledgeable and dynamic professors and practitioners. My experience at Queen Mary has equipped me to be a more astute intellectual property litigator as well as a more useful advisor to global companies trying to manage and protect their intellectual assets and guard against other risks arising from participation in e-commerce. I've gained a valuable multi-jurisdictional perspective that will make my practice more progressive and portable.
