About International Trade Law at Robert Gordon University

This course combines academic and practical elements in the study of international trade with law, organisations and economics. This is unusual in the UK higher education sector, and leads to networking and social opportunities. The international focus of the programme is suitable for students worldwide as well as those within the United Kingdom.

This course aims to provide the legal practitioner, the business owner, employee or executive, public officials and the recent graduate with current and practical knowledge about International Trade, including the law as it relates to international business. This is a multi-disciplinary course designed for those interested in careers in international trade or in government departments involved with trade-related issues.

Entry requirements

A good honours degree in any field relevant to international trade, such as law, economics, management, public policy, accountancy or business, should form the basis of an application. Applicants who do not possess an honours degree, but have a degree or degree-equivalent qualification, as well as work experience at a suitable level within an organisation, for an appropriate length of time, will be considered, as will qualifications from an approved professional body. All international students, for whom English is not their first language, must provide evidence of linguistic ability, by gaining either IELTS 6.5 or its equivalent in TOEFL prior to receiving an unconditional offer of a place on the course.
