Mr. Geraint Hughes, a graduate of King’s College London and a partner at Clifford Chance, established the Tynybedw Law Bursary. Mr Hughes has fond memories of his time spent at King’s and would like to help other students there get a head start in the legal field.
The purpose of this award is to give deserving students the chance to pursue a degree in law at King’s by covering a sizable percentage of their tuition costs. The scholarships are intended to help students who would not otherwise be able to afford college.
Because of this, scholarship recipients will be chosen based on:
- the quality of the applicants’ cover letters, and
- financial evaluation of the application.

It has roughly 26,000 students enrolled across five locations in the central area of London at the moment. It was a major contribution to many of the discoveries that have had a significant impact on modern life, including the discovery of the structure of DNA. King’s College London is now the largest centre for the education of doctors, dentists, and other healthcare professionals in all of Europe. It also boasts the most Medical Research Council centres of any British institution, the largest dental school in Europe, and the world’s oldest professional nursing school, making it the undisputed leader in the field.
