I request anyone who has suitable information, to let us applicants for 2010 know, if there are any scholarships for LLM (Coursework degrees and/or International Business Law), apart from the ones mentioned in the application forms. If yes, where would we be able to find information and deadlines about the same?
Thanks in advance

Dear Faith and Doyel,

NUS as such only offers the scholarships, which you see being reflected in the application form. other than that, you might consider looking for institutional scholarships in your respective countries. Most of these scholarships are awarded by the said institutions on your successful admission to the university.

My experience was that institutions are a little less willing to fund you with scholarships if you opt a corporate/ commercial law specialised programme (I really don'tknow why.. Do corporate lawyers really make so much more money than anyone else??!!!) Nevertheless, i do not mean to discourage you in your endeavors and wish you luck for your applications..

you might find this link (for indian students) relevant..

The number isn't fixed and depends upon how many students get selected across the different courses ( in the coursework programmes..).. The present class comprises about 135 students or so. You can go the NUS law website alumni directory (http://www.law.nus.edu.sg/alumni/alumni_directory.htm) and check out the alumni list. It will give you a fair clue as to the average intake forevry acaemic session.

IELTS scores are taken only to see your English proficiency for determining your suitability in the programme. In case you're from India, and have done your undergrad degree in English, you may consider requesting for an IELTS waiver (endorsed to that effect by your law school) alongwith the application.

I have received an acknowledgment letter saying my official transcript has not been received by them. I had sent it though. Looks like either there is a mix-up at NUS or at the Courier office.

Anyway...now if I re-apply, my University will take at least 15 working days to re-issue it. So if my transcript is received by them in say 20 working days, will they still consider my application?
