To provide mentoring, advice and limited financial assistance to outstanding students from disadvantaged backgrounds to enable them to apply for and complete a degree course in Law, at the University of Cambridge or other university.
ABOUT MIKA OLDHAM STUDENT TRUST
MOST was founded in 2015 by Mika Oldham, following 30 years of teaching Law at Cambridge University.
The aim of the trust is to assist students who are bright but whose background and schooling may be hindering the achievement of their full potential and ambitions.
Selection of MOST scholars will be on the basis of competitive testing of aptitude to study Law, such testing to be held in two or three centres in different parts of the country (details will be posted in the News section). The test will be similar in style to the Law admission tests used at Cambridge, but will be aimed at students at an earlier stage of their education. As with the Cambridge test, no knowledge of Law on the part of applicants will be expected.
Mentors will provide scholars with advice and guidance on school and/or career choices and opportunities, feedback on ideas, encouragement and general support.
The majority of mentors will be Cambridge Law graduates. In some cases academic staff may offer more specific support, for example, with regard to admissions tests and interviews.
