Faculty of Law MCL Scholarships for 2019-20

The Faculty of Law is pleased to be able to offer two scholarships for the Master of Corporate Law (MCL) course for the 2019-20 academic year.

Value of the awards

The total value of each scholarship will be £31,500. The scholarships will pay the MCL course fee for two students undertaking the MCL course during the 2019-20 academic year. The scholarships will not cover maintenance (living costs), accommodation, or any other costs/expenses incurred by the recipients in respect of their MCL studies.

Selection criteria

The scholarships will be awarded by the Faculty of Law’s MCL Admissions Committee exclusively on the basis of academic merit, irrespective of nationality or any other (non-academic) factor.

Selection process

All applicants for the 2019-20 MCL course will be automatically considered for the scholarships; a separate application for the scholarships will not be required.

Conditions of the awards

The scholarship recipients will remain responsible for paying their living costs (maintenance), accommodation, and all other costs/expenses incurred in respect of their MCL studies. The recipients will also remain responsible for meeting the financial condition of their MCL offer by completing the University’s Financial Undertaking Form to confirm that they are able to cover the maintenance and other costs of their MCL year.

Award of each of the scholarships will be conditional upon the following:

  • The recipient formally accepting their MCL course offer via their applicant self-service account and paying the £3,000 reservation fee to the Faculty of Law by the relevant deadline;
  • The recipient meeting all of their course offer conditions in full by the relevant deadline, including the financial condition;
  • The recipient not accepting any other scholarship/funding which covers the MCL course fee;
  • The recipient taking up their MCL course place at the start of the 2019-20 academic year.

If, after a scholarship offer is made, the recipient declines their MCL course offer, or the recipient’s MCL course offer is withdrawn by the University because they have not met one or more of the course offer conditions, the scholarship offer will be withdrawn. The MCL Admissions Committee will subsequently offer the relevant scholarship to a reserve candidate.

The scholarship recipients will not be permitted to transfer their scholarship to another course or year, or to use their scholarship for any purpose other than full payment of the 2019-20 MCL course fee.

Payment of the awards

For each scholarship, a single payment of £31,500 will be made by the Faculty of Law directly to the college of the scholarship recipient at the start of the 2019-20 academic year in full payment of the MCL course fee.

As the £3,000 reservation fee is applied against the course fee for the MCL course, each scholarship recipient will receive a refund of their £3,000 reservation fee payment. The £45 administrative charge levied by the University’s Finance Office for processing the reservation fee payment will not be refundable.

If a scholarship recipient withdraws from the MCL course before the end of the 2019-20 academic year, the scholarship funds will be retained by the college for the period during which the student was in residence and any remaining funds will be returned to the Faculty of Law.
