Birmingham Law School scholarships

  • £3,000 per annum

Eligibility: International students with overseas fees status who have applied for one of the above courses and placed Birmingham as firm choice. Applications are assessed based on academic merit. Scholarships are not paid directly to successful applicants but will take the form of a fee reduction at the beginning of the programme.


Applicants are required to complete the LLB scholarship application form and send it to [email protected]. The application includes a 500 word statement, in which students should address why they should be made an award. You must include your UCAS ID number in your letter of motivation.

Applications are now open for 2017. The deadline for applications is 5pm (BST) 23 June 2017.

Successful applicants will be notified in July 2017. Scholarships are not payable directly to successful applicants but are set off against the University fee invoice for 2017-2018 and will be transferred once successful applicants have paid the balance owed by them to the University. Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants with feedback on their application.
