Money Matters

As a postgraduate student you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your programme of study. You may be able to apply for funding to help you cover your costs.

When planning your finances, you will also need to consider other expenses such as living costs, accommodation fees and study materials. Visit the University’s postgraduate fees and funding page for more information.

Scholarships for Postgraduate Taught Programmes

Southampton Law School is delighted to be able to offer the following scholarships for applicants starting in September 2016

LLM International Scholarships

The LLM International Scholarships are available to all applicants from outside the European Union. This scholarship will be in the form of a tuition fee reduction.

We are delighted to announce that we are offering a scholarship of £3,000 to applicants who have been offered a place on one of the School’s LLM programmes starting in September 2016.

To qualify for one of our scholarships, you must have achieved a 1st class in your Bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent GPA from your country).

If you are successful in gaining a place with us, this scholarship will mean an automatic reduction in your tuition fees. When we send your offer letter to you we will also write to you to let you know you are eligible for one of our Scholarships. Providing you accept our offer of a place on the LLM and meet all the conditions of your offer, we will confirm your Scholarship before the programme start in September 2016.

Please note:

The Scholarships listed above are only for 2016 entry. If you are unable to take up your place this year and subsequently re-apply for 2017 entry, Scholarships will not automatically carry over to 2017 entry. Scholarships also only apply to the Southampton Law School and will not apply if you change your programme to another School/Faculty.

These Scholarships are offered at the discretion of the Southampton Law School and the decisions as to the awards are final and not open to review. The School reserves the right not to award all or indeed any Scholarship(s) in any particular year.


Finding funding for postgraduate study in the UK is more difficult than for undergraduate study, as it is not customary for the government to provide assistance in the form of loans. International students should investigate funding opportunities in their home country. A list of suggested funding bodies is available on our website
