Why study International and European Business Law

This innovative master’s degree covers EU law plus cutting edge contemporary legal trade issues in the post-Brexit world. It will provide you with a detailed understanding of the complexities of international trade and business law.

Why St Mary's

St Mary’s offers you a very supportive teaching team with additional input from expert practitioners. We take pride in our reputation as a friendly university with a community-feel, just 30 minutes from central London.

Our partnership with ICP, Paris provides you with a fantastic opportunity to study in Paris for one semester. Teaching is in English, but if you would like to develop or brush up your French language skills, St Mary's also offers French language short courses that can help prepare you for your semester in Paris.

The collaboration between ICP and St Mary’s offers you a wonderful opportunity for cross-cultural learning, increasing your understanding of the English, French and EU legal systems. Academics from both institutions will teach at the other sharing specialist knowledge of their own legal system and discipline areas.

If you have not studied either English or French law before, don’t worry, the course has been designed to ensure you will receive the support and guidance to study these successfully.

If you would prefer to study in London throughout your degree, we also offer an LLM in International Business Law.

International and European Business Law is part of a successful suite of law programmes at St Mary's. You will be encouraged to get involved with a variety of employability events that includes a mock trial, mooting and commercial awareness seminars. The degree also has strong links with the MSc International Business Management and there will be opportunities for business and law students to engage in a diverse programme of extra-curricular events.

Information for international students

International students should check our country-specific pages for equivalents. If English is not your first language you will need to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5 overall with no less than 6.0 in any section (or equivalent).

We now accept IELTS Indicator test results as proof of your English language level.

International students can apply for the LLM International and European Business with a semester at ICP in Paris, but you will need to arrange your own visa in order to study in France.

If successful with your application, St Mary’s will issue you with a CAS in order to apply for a one year UK visa so that you can return to London after the second semester in Paris in order to use St Mary’s libraries or to meet with your supervisor.

If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a French visa, you will be able to switch to the International Business Law LLM which is based at St Mary’s for the whole year.
