Common Law - The Common Law degree is designed for students who plan to practise law in common law jurisdictions in countries such as England and Wales, Canada, the United States, India, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. It is not suitable for those who may wish to enter the legal profession in Scotland. Glasgow School of Law has a hugely successful study abroad programme with more than 60% of students undertaking international mobility. The degree is suitable for students who wish to study in Scotland then move to work in other countries once they graduate. Law is a subject that is relevant to everyone because it affects all our daily lives. It is an academic discipline that attracts students who are interested in how society is regulated, what the aims of regulation should be and how successful it is in achieving them. The University of Glasgow prides itself on developing World Changers and a knowledge and understanding of law and legal systems is one of the important ways in which people can seek to make a difference. This might be through changes to legal policy or practice, or in helping people to solve everyday problems or avoid future disputes.
Philosophy - Philosophy is the systematic attempt to arrive at clear answers to profound questions about issues such as knowledge, life, morality, science and human nature using reason and argument. We host reading parties for students in the Highlands, and have a flourishing undergraduate Philosophy Society. We are home to the Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience. You will develop many transferable skills and attributes which will be valuable in your future career. These include the ability to evaluate arguments and interpret texts, the facility to be analytical, the skill to think and write clearly and precisely, and the capacity to question assumptions. Some of our graduates go on to study for postgraduate degrees in Philosophy and some of these progress to teach in universities.
