Application for St Andrews' Masters in Legal and Constitutional Studies Starts 5 October 2017
The University of St Andrews is a public research university in Fife, Scotland. It may not have a law school, but the School of History offers a Master level degree in Legal and Constitutional Studies (PGDip/MLitt). For prospective students who intend to enhance their legal knowledge in the fields of legal and constitutional law, St Andrews is a perfect choice.
In fact, in the recent list published by The Complete University Guide League Tables, St Andrews was ranked third among other UK universities just after Cambridge and Oxford. To be in the same league as these two prestigious universities is a huge accolade that St Andrews can be proud of.
The ranking it received was based mainly on four categories, i.e., entry standards, student satisfaction, research quality and graduate prospects. Students who place importance on these characteristics will get the entire package in St Andrews. For 6 centuries, the University gained the reputation of being one of the leading and teaching centers the world over.
The PGDip/MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies provides students with a post graduate program that allows them to design their own degree with focus on international law or legal history. Students may also opt to pursue an interdisciplinary, integrated degree. Those interested in enrolling need not be a graduate of law, but must have taken at least one law-related undergraduate course. The 2018-2019 classes start September, and applications will be considered until the start of the course.
