College of Business and Law Research Masters Scholarship
The LLM by Research Degree involves writing a thesis of approximately 40,000 words under academic supervision. The student will be expected to submit the completed thesis for examination after 12 months. In cases where progress has been excellent and there is potential for the project to progress to PhD standard, the student may (with the support of the supervisor) apply to progress from LLM to PhD (Track) registration without submitting a completed thesis for examination. All such applications are considered by the Graduate Studies Committee pursuant to an oral presentation and submission of written work and a progress report. Approval of progression to PhD does not carry automatic approval of funding for the additional two years; students would have to apply separately for any such competitive scholarship schemes as may be available at that time.
Applications will be assessed by the Graduate Studies Committee of the School of Law.
Valued at €5,770, which will cover the EU student’s fees
