MSc Historical Studies
I thoroughly enjoyed my undergraduate degree and felt that I wanted to spend more time studying the topics that I had found most interesting. The MSc offered me the opportunity to do this and to shape my coursework and dissertation according to my interests.
MSc Public Policy
I feel that I reached a plateau in my work life. I needed a new challenge and wanted to equip myself with the skills to better understand the policy environments I was working within. University of Strathclyde appealed to me as the course content is very forward thinking and relevant in the real world.
LLM International Commercial Law
The academic reputation of the University of Strathclyde as a leading research institution was of particular attraction to me. I was also attracted to Strathclyde by the beauty and culture of Glasgow; a modern, progressive and friendly city with a rich history, that develops and fosters global citizens.
