Banking and Finance Law - University Choice


JLOB
Hi! I need some help. At the moment I've received offers from the following uni's:

-Glasgow
-Queen Mary London
-Sussex
-York
-Leeds
-Amsterdam
-Zürich

I've applied for a postgraduate in Banking and Finance law in all of these universities, but I have no clue which one to chose. Can someone give me some advise or experiences about these different universities? Or are there other universities that I should apply to taking into account that I want to study Banking and Finance Law? I've also applied at KCL, but I'm still waiting for them to answer.

Thank you,

John

Hi, I can't give much guidance on Amsterdam and Zurich, but can offer a bit of help when it comes to the UK unis.
Out of the ones listed, I'd say QMUL probably has the greater reputation when it comes to Banking and Finance, with the added bonus that it's in London - centre of finance in the UK.
I can speak personally about York as it's where I did my undergraduate, and while the Law department is very good, it's strength does not lie in either Banking or Finance. If you are set of pursuing study in that area I would probably go elsewhere.
Glasgow, as far as I'm aware, has a very good reputation and is strong on the commercial side.
As for other unis in the UK, Durham is somewhere you might want to look at. It has a very strong commercial law department which may cover what you wish to learn. LSE is the strongest in this area along with Cambridge, but I believe both the application stages for those courses are closed.
Ultimately, your choice will probably depend on the exact modules taught, and affordability. But if I were you, I'd be looking at QMUL and Glasgow. Hope this helps!

Hi! I wanted to follow this post too, since I'm going to apply to a LLM in these subjects next year (most likely in the UK).

Can I ask why you didn't consider Edinburgh or Manchester?

Yuloasis: Considering that London is a bit too expensive, which one of these options (Edinburgh, Manchester and Glasgow) is the best for Banking and Finance?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi!

I was quite late with deciding what I wanted to do next year. The Edinburgh application proces also closed earlier then expected this year, because they received so many applications. As for Manchester, I completed my application, but I never submitted it. The University/City didn't really appeal to me in comparison with the Universities like Glasgow, QMUL, KCL...but that's just my opinion. But I do think both Edinburgh and Manchester would be a great choice for an LLM in Banking and Finance Law. I would advise you to start applying early, giving the fact that it can take quite a while before you receive an answer.

Best of luck!
