Interested in what our current students have to say about the LLM in International Law and Security at Glasgow? Read their comments below.
"Taking the decision to study at the University of Glasgow was the best decision I could have made. My course, the LLM in International Law and Security, is as interesting as it is challenging and as a result the year has gone by far too quickly. The West End of Glasgow meanwhile has plenty to offer. Living next to the Botanic Gardens made the walk to and from the University enjoyable every day irrespective of the weather. Between the people you can meet, the classes that you can take and the activities you can do I cannot recommend the University of Glasgow strongly enough." Eoin Craven, Ireland (2011/2012)
"This past year, studying and living in Glasgow has probably been the best experience in my life. Glasgow is a great city, full of student life, there are so many places to go out after a hard day at Uni. I think what I love the most about living in Glasgow is first of all the kindness of the Scots, and second of all the opportunity to form worldwide connections as there are many people from all around the world. The University in itself is an amazing place, it has got so many things going on, the gym, the student unions, so you will not have time to be bored." Charlotte Divin, France (2011/2012)
"Studying at the University of Glasgow has been an amazing experience. The courses offered by the University are unique and taught at a really high level. The staff are always attentive and helpful in every situation, making life as a student even more enjoyable. Also Glasgow as a city is a really student-friendly place. The range of attractions varies from cultural spots, such as museums, alternative cinemas and galleries, to social spaces, such as pubs, restaurants and music venues. I have enjoyed living and studying here and even got used to the weather by appreciating every single dry and sunny day!" Aleksandra Dlubak, Poland (2011/2012)
