The University of Dundee evaluation:

Law and legal studies evaluation:


You will learn to understand the organisation, theory and practice of criminal justice and human rights law at an international level. Organised crime, terrorist activity and regional civil wars go beyond national boundaries, affecting human rights beyond the interests and capacity of individual nation states. The effective detection, investigation and prosecution of crime is increasingly dependent on closer harmonisation and co-operation between global institutions. This course will develop your understanding of the main global systems for the protection of human rights. It will also teach you about the main arguments for and against the universality of human rights, in the light of cultural diversity.

About this university

International students

For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Advice Service is available to help them with all aspects of the transition. They offer confidential advice and help on matters such as immigration and visas, working during and after studies as well as community group information and links to international hospitality schemes. There is support for international families as well as arranging cultural and social events during the year aimed primarily at international students. They are based in the Enquiry Centre on Campus Green or via email. Students are represented by the University's Student Representative Council while the Students Association organises the societies, clubs and organisations outside the classroom. It is unusual because it isn't a member of the National Union of Students due to cost and political considerations. The union is based in Airlie Place, at the centre of the main campus and has a bar, nightclub and refectory on site. There are 42 clubs associated with the Sports Union at the university and these have annual award ceremonies as well as an annual Ball. A multi-million pound redevelopment saw a number of new facilities for sports around the university including the first UK gym with mp3/mp4 compatible personal viewing screens.
