Considering postgraduate study in Law? Come to one of our open events in Canterbury or Brussels
17 January 2018
Final year law and non-law students are invited to learn more about postgraduate funding and study opportunities at Kent Law School by coming to one of two open events taking place in Canterbury and Brussels.
Postgraduate programmes at Kent Law School are open to all graduates from a relevant discipline (an undergraduate degree in law is not a requirement) and may be of particular interest to those of you interested in developing your legal skills.

The Open Event offers a chance to learn more about Kent’s £11m postgraduate scholarship fund, including the Law School’s Taught Master's Overseas Scholarship and Taught Master's Home/EU Scholarship (which are both open for applications until Monday 19 March 2018.) You can also ask about: our competitive fees; the £10,280 Postgraduate Master's Loans available for Home/EU students; and the Global Skills Award and Researcher Development Programme that can help enhance your career prospects.
