50% Final Year Undergraduate Continuation Scholarships

Just graduated with a 1st class degree? Congratulations! You can now progress onto a postgraduate course starting in September 2017 and receive UEA’s 50% fee reduction scholarship. Don’t worry if you didn’t gain a 1st class degree, as you’re still eligible for the brilliant 10% UEA Alumni Scholarship as a postgraduate, outlined below. Terms and conditions apply. 

This scholarship can be awarded in conjunction with the PG loan scheme.


UEA Alumni 10% Scholarships

We highly value our Alumni at UEA, so a 10% fee reduction scholarship is available to graduates looking to stay with us or return for postgraduate study in September 2017. We also offer subject specific scholarships tailored to your course. Follow the Faculty links below that interest you to find specific course funding opportunities. Terms and conditions apply.

This scholarship can be awarded in conjunction with the PG loan scheme.


Other Scholarships

We may also have other Scholarships available based on close relations with particular Law Schools and/or countries around the world.  Please contact our Admissions team on law.pgt.admiss@uea.ac.uk or your local agent for further information.

*NOTE* Applicants will only qualify for one automatic scholarship/tuition fee bursary.  For example, UEA LLB applicants holding on offer or having paid their deposit by 11th April 2017 will automatically be eligible for the UEA LLB 20% scholarship but not the 10% Early Application Scholarship.  This does not apply to discretionary scholarships such as the Academic Excellence Scholarship and therefore automatic scholarships may be supplemented with discretionary ones in appropriate cases.
