"The Southampton Law School has announced a scholarship of 30 per cent for LLB (Hons) Law (3 years), LLB (Hons) Maritime Law (3 years), LLB (Hons) European Legal Studies (4 years) and LLB (Hons) International Legal Studies (4 years)," the university's media coordinator Filza Hussain said in a statement on Wednesday.
The annual fee for these programmes — recognised by the Bar Council of India — is 12,420 British Pounds. The programme commences in September 2013 and the deadline to apply is May 2013. "For scholarships, students must make University of Southampton their choice while applying through University and College Admission Service (UCAS — British admission service) and exceed minimum entry requirements by 5 per cent," Hussain said.
