All applicants who are accepted for admission to any taught LLM or MSc programmes offered by the School (including Online Learning programmes) starting in the 2024-25 academic year.


The award will be made on the basis of academic merit and the strength of a personal statement. Within your personal statement please include:

  • the specific elements of the LLM or MSc programme that attracted you to the University of Edinburgh and why these are meaningful to you; and

Priority will be given to those who have not had the opportunity to study at masters level previously.
