GREAT Scholarships for justice and law

The GREAT Scholarships for justice and law is a new time-limited programme from the Study UK campaign and the Ministry of Justice.

The GREAT Scholarships for justice and law are jointly funded by Solent University, with the UK government’s GREAT Britain campaign and the British Council.

This year, in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, Solent University is offering one scholarship of £10,000 to students from Kenya.

This scholarship scheme is part of the GREAT Scholarships 2023 campaign, which has been launched by the British Council together with UK universities to support more students to access excellent UK higher education opportunities.

The GREAT Scholarships scheme offers an exciting opportunity for students from Kenya to get financial support to pursue postgraduate study in the UK.
