College of Law Gold award scheme opens

Applications for the College of Law’s Gold Award Scheme for students starting in January 2013 have opened.

The Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) scholarship programme focuses on students with a first class honours bachelors degree or a distinction at masters and is worth £3,000 per award.

Students are entitled to a £2,000 discount from GDL fees initially and another £1,000 towards a subsequent course if they undertake a Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) with the CoL.

Applications must be received by 7 December.

The scholarship was launched this summer to help the current intake of GDL students fund their studies. (31 July)
