EU students: LLM grants and loans


JuliaLLM

Hi dear LLM-applicants,

I am a law graduate from Belgium and will be pursuing an LLM at Queen Mary (competition law), Nottingham, Birmingham or Bristol (int'al commercial law) next year.

My choice of university now depends on how much many I will be able to raise till October.

So, to all EU students: how do you find the fundings for the LLM programmes? As far as I understand we are not eligible for the interest free loans in the UK and normal study loans in Belgium (and other EU countries I suppose) are extremely expensive. I am not very optimistic on getting a scholarship from the university and have so far raised about half of the funds I will need next year.

So lets share some info: WHERE TO GET THE MONEY?

Kind regards,

J

How about working? You know, they pay you for doing stuff.

Dear Julia,
I would suggest you hunt around for grants and loans. There is for instance the annual grants directory which lists thousands of grants and loans...such as this one (should be in major public libraries): See http://www.amazon.co.uk/Directory-Grant-Making-Trusts-2010-2011/dp/1906294348

One point overlooked by non-British students is that the UK has thousands of grant making charities most of which do not have a restriction to British or non-EU nationals. The UK has one of the most dense network of grant giving charities in the world (the reason for this is to do with the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century and the establishment of the Charitable Use Act 1601 (known as the Statute of Elizabeth)). I always recommend students coming from abroad to investigate the prospects for obtaining awards from grant making trusts here.

I would also check the institutions you are applying to they may well have scholarships available. We have a series of LLM tuition free scholarships on offer this year and I suspect other institutions must run the same sort of schemes. See

Do not give up!
