Scholarships and Bursaries

The School of Law currently has scholarships available to students who have been offered a place.

The JC Smith Scholarship Fund

The JC 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.

Deadline: The deadline for 2020 entry has now passed.
