Course summary

The Scots law degree is the required degree for those planning to enter the Scottish legal profession. It is also an excellent foundation for students who wish to work in legal practice in other countries and in many other careers. The Scots law curriculum offers intellectual depth and has a range of flexible options. Glasgow School of Law has a hugely successful study abroad programme with more than 60% of students undertaking international mobility. Social & Public Policy focuses on social problems such as poverty, homelessness and ill-health. The programme applies ideas from political science, sociology and economics to explore how governments shape their responses, and to understand the impacts of public policy on society. You’ll have the valuable opportunity of a work placement with a voluntary or public sector organisation.
