Trinity College Dublin Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Masters Studentship 2016/17





The Law School at Trinity College Dublin is delighted to announce the establishment of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Masters Studentship.

The value of the studentship is a 5,000 euro contribution towards LL.M tuition fees (EU or Non-EU) in academic year 2016/17. It is funded by the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Trinity College Dublin.


This studentship seeks to acknowledge the quality of entrants to our taught LL.M programmes and the on-going contribution of LL.M students to our Law School and Faculty of AHSS. It aims to support and develop gifted postgraduate students.
