Canon Collins Trust invites applications for scholarships to study for the Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and/or the Master of Laws (LLM) by distance learning at the University of London in 2017. Applicants can start at any level, and do not need to complete the whole programme. For example, applicants can start at Postgraduate Certificate level and work their way through to the LLM, or can stop after completing the PG Certificate.

Local examination fees are not included. Scholarship recipients have between 1 to 5 years to complete the qualification, and continued registration on the course is dependent upon satisfactory progress and academic reports.
