The University of Bedfordshire has joined forces with a prestigious American university to offer students the opportunity to study law abroad.
The Department of Law and Finance has secured five scholarships with Penn State University's Law School and its prestigious LLM programme in Pennsylvania.
The Bedfordshire scholars will be the first from a UK university to be offered a place on the programme, which will see them study Law at postgraduate level.
The opportunity will be available to final year undergraduate students, postgraduate students and Bedfordshire Law graduates, who demonstrate excellent academic performance, possess professional experience and are in need of financial assistance.
Senior Lecturer in Law at Bedfordshire Dr Crina Baltag said: “We are delighted to have been able to secure these fantastic opportunities for our students, who will be the first from the UK to join this highly competitive programme. We also hope that this amazing opportunity will inspire our first and second year students to work hard with a view to apply in their final year.”
Executive Dean of the Business School Debra Leighton said: “These scholarships are an amazing opportunity to give our students the chance to study abroad and broaden their horizons. The fact that our students will be the first in the UK to study at Penn State’s Law School is testament to the dedication of our staff and their commitment to providing an exciting learning community.”
