The thought behind helping those from more modest backgrounds to take the opportunity of a world-class education is one that I will be forever thankful for.


Law School Hardship Fund

The Hardship Grant Committee awards small grants to students in the School of Law who are experiencing exceptional financial hardship, to the degree that it may impact their study or even their ability to complete their course. The average award is £250. An annual call for applications is made, usually in late February to mid-March. In exceptional circumstances, grants may be made outside this period. If you wish to apply for an award please complete the application form as soon as possible.
