 Dean of BPP University Law School

The Deans Scholarship has been awarded to both Grace Corby and Paul Hyland. This scholarship recognises exceptional academic achievement and the recipients’ commitment to their legal careers.

Grace, whose aim is to train as a barrister, expressed her delight, saying that the scholarship would allow her to “fully focus” on her studies and have more time to “get involved in BPP’s (…) varied pro-bono opportunities.”

Paul said that he would not have been able to pursue this path without the university’s confidence in him.

The Chancellor’s Scholarship

For 2020/21, The Chancellor’s Scholarship has been awarded to four students: Rianna Moth, Nadia Desouza, Hawa Jogi and Sarah Looney.

Rianna Moth said she was “overwhelmed” to have received this “honour” as someone from an “unconventional background.”
