University of Aberdeen


The Law School welcomes students who wish to pursue research degrees in law, and is able to provide supervision in a wide range of subjects.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree; a good Master's degree in a relevant subject area. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
