Thriving culture of prizes and scholarships

The Law School has a thriving culture of prizes and scholarships which involves collaboration with, and taking inspiration from influential global Partners. This culture has been introduced and developed with Dr Radek Stech taking up an appointment as the Director of Prizes, Bursaries and Scholarships in November 2015.

Our culture of prizes and scholarships is based upon two core guiding principles: ‘beyond marks’ and ‘beyond money’. The first relates to the criteria upon which the student winners are selected and includes extracurricular activities, community engagement and leadership.  The ‘beyond money’ principle encourages the students to take advantage and think in terms of wider developmental opportunities offered by the donors.

This portfolio is also developed through partnerships with our donors, academic staff, Exeter alumni, and the students with the view to cultivating long term relationships that will lead to improved careers for our students.

Please see below the current list of our prizes and how they align with our culture of prizes and scholarships.
