The Masters in International Competition Law & Policy provides you with a unique opportunity to specialise in an increasingly important area of law. The laws of the EU and the US lie at the heart of this programme, but reference is made to the laws of many other jurisdictions.
This programme provides a thorough academic background in the area of competition law and policy. You will be well-placed for roles in law firms, policy makers, enforcement agencies and regulators.
You will study three or four courses from the following list (one choice can come from other subject areas), and are required to submit a dissertation approved as falling within the area. Courses are delivered through a blend of lectures and seminar style teaching.
Competition laws have been adopted by many countries, including the US, EU and its members, and recently China. The law impacts significantly on the ways in which companies, both large multinational corporations, and small and medium-sized enterprises, conduct themselves in the competitive environment. The laws of the EU and the US lie at the heart of this programme, but reference is made to, and examples are drawn from, the laws of many other jurisdictions. This programme provides a thorough academic background for work in the private sector, or with enforcement agencies around the world.
As part of the Taught Masters Programme, there is a compulsory one-week induction programme, tailored specifically for the LLM. This offers students information and guidance on learning methods, research skills, and on non-academic aspects of life and study in Glasgow.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
As a commitment to supporting students and rewarding academic excellence, the University of Glasgow offers a wide range of financial support.
The University of Glasgow also offers funding opportunities to its current students wanting to carry out a project or a piece of research away from the University.
We are also members of the Association of Business Schools and of theEuropean Foundation for Management Development.
