The City Law School is firmly committed to a generous programme of scholarships awarded on the basis of academic excellence.
While the primary consideration for the award of a scholarship is academic excellence, The City Law School's Scholarships Committee looks carefully at the full range of qualities possessed by each individual and closely considers the broader context in which the academic excellence has been achieved.
We also believe that it is important to value the potential of applicants to make a positive contribution to the School, the legal professions and the community when we evaluate applications.
Up to 100 awards are available across the postgraduate and professional programmes involved in total and the scholarship carries different values for different programmes:
- £5,000 for Bar Vocational Studies (BVS) courses (for the two-part option, this is available for the second part only)
- £3,000 for Graduate Entry LLB, LPC or Master of Laws
- £2,000 for Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).
You must have an upper second or first degree (or international equivalent). You must hold an offer of a place on one of the courses specified above at The City Law School. The offer can be conditional or unconditional and you do not need to have accepted your place in order to apply for a scholarship.
You can be of any fee paying status (Home, EU or international) and be studying full-time or part-time.
If you are applying for the Graduate Entry LLB, the scholarship application is only available to those who hold an offer of a place on the UCAS web portal.

How to apply
Students will be invited to apply for scholarship when offers are made. Students will be invited to submit one application that will be considered for both the City Law School Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence and the City Law School Scholarship for Academic Excellence.
If you applied for any of the BVS programmes or the LPC you will be invited to apply for an award when an offer is made. In your offer email you will be given the scholarship application deadline (these are rolling throughout the year); you will receive the outcome of your scholarship application before the acceptance deadline.
If you are awarded a City Law School Scholarship for Academic Excellence earlier in the year, you will be considered for an upgrade to City Law School Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence in June.
