Interested in what our current students and graduates have to say about the LLM in International Commercial Law at Glasgow? Read their comments below.
I had always an interest for studying International Commercial Law since my undergraduate studies. In particular, Carriage of Goods by Sea and International Sales and Finance were my main subjects of interest. I knew at that time and I have confirmed now that Glasgow Uni is a great university to study shipping and carriage of goods by sea in general because of the city's tradition of being a shipping and commercial spot for the UK.” Adolfo Toca Bonilla, Dominican Republic (2010/2011)
“The size of seminars, in small groups, created a completely different atmosphere from having lectures in German universities, which I did enjoy and appreciate. The main difference, that I noticed, is the approachability of the staff. Everyone here is so friendly and helpful, which was very useful during the busy exam period especially!” Christina Plath, Germany(2009/2010)
“I had high expectations of Glasgow University, and am delighted to say that the staff, teaching and general atmosphere was better than I could have imagined.” Louisa Silcox, UK (2007/2008)
“I came into contact with many Luminaries of my field. Good multicultural environment; great learning experience, made new friends from different parts of the world.” Pradhuman Gautman, India (2007/2008)
