India Class XII Excellence Scholarship

We are offering scholarships of £2,500 to £5,000 towards tuition fees for students achieving high results in the India Class XII examinations and entering a law degree course at Nottingham in 2017.

The India Standard XII Excellence Scholarship for Law will be awarded to students who:

  • are classed as an overseas student for fee purposes AND
  • complete the India Class XII examinations with an overall average grade of 90% or above AND
  • hold an offer to start a full-time undergraduate degree programme (BA or LLB) in the University of Nottingham's School of Law in September 2017 AND
  • respond to their offer and submit their Standard XII results to the University by 1 August 2017

Please see our scholarships page for more information. 

The J C Smith Scholarship Fund

The J C Smith Scholarship Fund was set up in 2003 in memory of Professor Sir John Smith.

Knighted in 1993 for his services to academic law, Sir John was widely recognised as making a huge contribution to the development of Criminal Law.

Sir John had been associated with the School of Law since 1950 and was appointed as Professor of Law in 1957.


The School of Law has five scholarships to offer to students who come from an educationally disadvantaged background (available to those classed as 'home' students only).

All students and prospective students should also refer to the financial support website.
