Entry Requirements

Applications are invited from graduates holding an excellent degree (at least 2.1) in Law or Business/Economics - ideally non-law graduates will have taken some law modules and law graduates will have taken some business/economics modules.

In exceptional circumstances, substantial professional experience within a related field may be regarded by the selection panel as compensating for a lack of an undergraduate degree to the required standard. Such applicants should state clearly in their application why they feel their other qualifications/experience are appropriate for admission onto the programme.

Niamh Gallagher

The MSc International Law and Business programme sets UCD apart from other universities for me, as it is the only interdisciplinary
programme available at postgraduate level. The hugely important link between law and business is becoming more predominant in light of the number of multinational companies doing business in Ireland. I chose this programme to equip myself with the academic and practical skills required of commercial lawyers working in international firms. The subjects offered complement each other well and allow students to develop a practical knowledge of key areas of international law and business. Small class sizes resulted in an
interactive and friendly learning environment. I am confident that the knowledge I have acquired will be hugely advantageous as I embark on my professional training. The project module allows students to identify an area of interest and carry out practical research
in a professional service firm. This is a fantastic opportunity that graduates with a genuine interest in law and business will not find elsewhere.’
