Interested in what our current students and graduates have to say about the LLM in International Competition Law and Policy at Glasgow? Read their comments below.
"I really like the teaching methods. We had classes in small groups that enabled me to participate easily and ask more questions to the Professors. Also, we had to do several oral presentations and this exercise was a good way to prepare us for the working life. Now, I feel ready to work in international law firms both in France and in the United Kingdom.
Beside the courses, I did a lot of sport as the fitness rooms of the University are well equipped and there are many parks around the University. Finally, the University is at the heart of the West End and not far from the city centre, so I could take full advantage of the Scottish lifestyle at the local pubs and restaurants!"

Most courses were organized in small groups which added to a unique study experience. I was amazed by the internationality of the courses and the student community and soon found new friends from all over the world. The staff have always been very approachable, friendly and helpful and created a great atmosphere that made it easy to feel at home from the start." Judith Krainz, Germany(2011/2012)
