The Hillary Rodham Clinton Global Challenges Programme, which is supported by Sky, aims to facilitate international cooperation 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.
In partnership with Sky, this graduate scholarship initiative will develop the next generation of outstanding, forward-looking and real-world focussed leaders in legal scholarship, activism and practice.
If you are accepted onto this master’s programme, you will receive a scholarship which covers the full tuition fee as well as a stipend of c.£15,000 to contribute towards your living costs.
Scholars will demonstrate academic excellence alongside a creative, action-oriented approach to collaboration and partnership working.

The degree programme is based on experiential learning, and includes a research project placement. In addition, Scholars will benefit from a range of additional activities, including mentorship, guest speakers, visits and media training.
