The Masters in International Law reflects the breadth of contemporary international law, addressing issues as diverse as world trade disputes, United Nations peacekeeping, international human rights litigation, State responsibility and criminal trials before international courts. It is based on the conviction that the international system requires a functioning legal framework, and that rules of international law are of practical relevance (both internationally and domestically).
There is a high demand for law professionals with expertise in international law. You will be well placed for roles in law firms, international institutions, government departments and non-governmental organisations.
You are required to take at least three courses from the following list (plus one other) and to submit a dissertation (15,000 words) approved as falling within the area. Courses are delivered through a blend of lectures and seminar style teaching.
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.
