The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, Swansea University, in partnership with Sky, is offering five master’s scholarships for exceptional individuals.

The Hillary Rodham Clinton Global Challenges Programme aims to facilitate transatlantic cooperation between the United Kingdom and the United States to address urgent national and transnational challenges, including:
  • Environmental law, with particular reference on the impact on women and children;
  • Human rights and international criminal law;
  • Children’s rights and protecting children online, and
  • Terrorism, radicalisation and cyber security.

The scholarships will develop the next generation of outstanding, forward-looking and real-world focussed leaders in legal scholarship, activism and practice. Scholars will demonstrate academic excellence alongside a creative, action-oriented approach to collaboration and partnership working.

They will follow a one-year master’s degree in Global Challenges: Law, Policy and Practice that will equip them with:
  • A strong awareness of contemporary global challenges in a rights-based framework;
  • An understanding of the role of law and policy in addressing national and transnational challenges;
  • The skills to undertake effective research, and develop creative practical solutions, and
  • Experience of advocating and engaging with stakeholders to facilitate law and policy reform.

Alongside their degree programme, scholars will benefit from a complementary range of additional activities, designed to further develop their skills and experience, and enhance their employability.

These will include mentorship by researchers and practitioners, bespoke media training, a series of workshops and seminars delivered by leading experts, and opportunities to visit relevant international institutions.


You will hold a first class degree in law, or a related discipline, with strong overall and individual module performance. Exceptional candidates with an upper second class degree who can demonstrate relevant work experience may also be considered.

If English or Welsh is not your first language you will need an acceptable pass in an approved English language qualification such as the IELTS test (with an overall score of at least 7.0 and a minimum of 6.5 in each component).
