TweetThis! Master of Research Scholarships - Law & Society, Legal History, Law

The School is inviting applications for entry to its Master of Research programmes.

The School has a strong interest in interdisciplinary work and applications are welcome from candidates with degrees not only in Law but also in Criminology, Sociology, History, Politics or other related disciplines.
Up to two fees-only scholarships will be awarded to applicants for full-time study in any of the following programmes: M Res (Law & Society); MA Res (Legal History); M Res (Law). For one scholarship preference may be given to applicants for the M Res (Law & Society). Applicants applying for more than one programme should indicate their order of preference. Scholarships will cover fees at the rate for UK/EU students.
