An application should make a case for the award of the scholarship to the applicant. The case for the award of a scholarship should be between 1000 and 1500 words and should:
- Describe the applicant's academic achievements and performance in university studies to date
- Discuss the applicant's reasons for wishing to study for the Kent LLM
- Outline the applicant's financial circumstances, indicating in particular whether the scholarship will make a difference to their ability to
study at the University of Kent.
All applicants are required to indicate how they intend to pay for living expenses and all other costs during their postgraduate studies.
Applicants must also submit one piece of academic writing. This could be either a piece of coursework of no more than 2,000 words previously submitted for assessment at the applicant’s previous institution or it could be a 2,000 word essay written for this application on a topic of the applicant’s choosing.
Applicants are reminded to ensure that their academic referees have submitted full references in support of their LLM application for a place on the programme. A separate reference for the scholarship is not required.
Applicants may also submit a limited number of supporting documents, as they think appropriate. It is unnecessary to send a copy of documents which have already been submitted as part of the application process for a place on the programme. Please note that any documents which arrive after the closing date may not be considered.
Candidates must apply for a place to study on the Kent LLM at the University through the online process.
Candidates must also complete a KLS PG Funding Application Form
which should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
along with the letter making a case for the award and the writing sample.
