Fees, Funding and Scholarships

Fees

Tuition fees cover all elements of your tuition, registration and examination. If applicable, any additional research expenses will be specified on your formal offer of admission. Full details of the tuition fees for each academic year can be found under the Fee schedule pages of the UCL Current Students website.

The published fees are only for the first year of study and the fees in subsequent years may increase to reflect UCL's increased costs in delivering the programme, such as operational costs, market forces and inflation: any increase in fees for subsequent years of the programme won't exceed 5% per year. You should make provision for such increases and this is implicit in accepting the offer of a place at UCL.

You must pay at least a third of your tuition fee before or at enrolment to be fully enrolled, or provide a letter of sponsorship indicating who should be invoiced for your fee.

Living costs

As well as your tuition fees, you will also need to think about how you are going to meet your living costs – accommodation, food and travel, as well as other costs associated with your studies and everyday life.

Leonard Sainer Scholarship 2022-23

Leonard Sainer was a law graduate of UCL (1929 – 1932) and went on to become a prominent City solicitor, the director of a number of public companies and a generous philanthropist. He passed away in 1991.

The Foundation, which was set up in his memory (and which is administered by Dechert LLP), funds two scholarships each year at UCL to be award to final year law students (completing the LLB or LLM) or students who graduated (with an LLB or and LLM) in the previous year (2021).  The selected students must intend to practise law in England and Wales on a permanent basis - preferably one as a Solicitor, the other as a Barrister.  Each scholarship will be used towards the cost of full-time courses leading to final professional examinations, LPC or BPTC.

To be eligible for this scholarship, you should be able to demonstrate that you meet the following criteria:

  • Financial need or other instances of hardship;

  • Right to work in the UK
