Thanks for the reply! Could you perhaps elaborate on the courses that you took? I'm still doubting what courses to take. It would be helpful to have an insider's perspective!

@ Agatio: I think it all depends on what you are interested in and your background. I had practised law with an Insolvency law firm before coming to Glasgow,so I took courses related to my law practice. I did debt finance and security,international finance law,corporate finance and International financial regulation. What courses are you considering?

@ Rose, I think you may want to consider the SRC site for accomodation: http://www.glasgowstudent.net/advice/accommodation/where-to-find-it/. There are various sites you can surf for rooms or flat. I actually found my flat through the SRC.

Well I'm quite interested in:
Corporate finance
Corporate governance
Debt finance and security

I would have to pick a fourth course but I'm doubting between:
International financial regulation
International finance law
Law of commercial banking

Could you perhaps give a personal appreciation of your experience with your courses?

I must tell you that the courses are all very intense, and you will have a lot of reading to do, but I can assure you that the experience is worthwhile and you will have a lot to learn.

Lectures are usually conducted in small groups and are quite interactive.

In international finance law, you will be exposed to topics such as securitisation,project finance,financial markets and instruments,exchanges and clearing houses,structured finance,derivatives,etc. It deals more with the transactional and practical aspect of finance. For example, in derivatives, you will have to look at the specific clauses in the ISDA 2002 Master Agreement.I don't think you will find that in any textbook on the subject.

In international finance regulation, you will be exposed to topics such as financial intermediation,global financial crisis and corrective measures, Basel Committee on banking and Financial Stability Board, EU,UK and US institutional and structural regulation. This was probably my most difficult course,because it was too,too detailed and very verse because we had to look at the UK,US and EU systems. But it was worth the stress.You will get to understand and discuss certain terms in international regulation like 'too big to fail', globally systemic important financial institutions and banks,etc

Corporate finance deals with management buy-outs(MBOs),share capital and maintenance of share capital, share purchase(SPAs) and transfers, public listing,international cross-listing,regulation of market and market-participants,etc.

In debt finance you will be exposed to topics like possessory and non-possessory securities,alternatives to security,quasi-security devices,enforcement of securities,priority,administration, insolvency,etc.

The professor in corporate finance is probably the best lecturer I have encountered. He broke down the course with practical examples and his lectures were the most interactive. He makes you develop and coordinate your own views on topical issues like distribution to members,relevance of share capital to creditors, private equity investments.

Debt finance was interesting because I had experience in insolvency practice, but I got to better understand the policy basis behind certain issues.

The courses were quite tough,but you will have a lot to learn, and you will also have the opportunity of exchanging views with students from other country.

Don't hesitate to ask me anything

I am studying at Glasgow and hence can only tell you about my experience. I think Glasgow school of law has a very good reputation. The LLM courses are taught by very good professors and the study environment is quite fantastic. Lectures are in small groups. This makes it easy for students to participate actively and converse easily. Also,the courses have very rich contents and you have options to choose from.
