2023 LLM Scholarships – The Canon Collins Trust University Of London
Table of Contents
These scholarships enable individuals to pursue the Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and the Master of Law (LLM) through distance learning at the University of London. Candidates have the flexibility to begin at any level and are not required to complete the entire program.
For instance, they can commence at the Postgraduate Certificate level and progress towards the LLM or conclude their studies after obtaining the PG Certificate. Those who have already obtained an undergraduate degree can directly start at the LLM level, bypassing the PG Certificate and Diploma.
