Overview

Many undergraduate law courses do not explore these topics, therefore this course is an excellent way to differentiate your CV and your skillset.

The International Business Law course from University of Essex Online will explore the following areas of international trade and commercial law:

  • the general principles of transnational contract law
  • the remit, procedures and operation of the World Trade Organisation
  • competition law and how it is implemented at a national and international level

Working with others through our online learning platform, you will develop your skills in areas such as time management, research, report writing, teamwork and communication. These transferable skills will add to the benefit your new qualification gives you, and you will also have the opportunity to continue your study on our PG Dip or Masters degree.

Why we’re great

  • Gain a highly recognised postgraduate qualification in just 8 months.
  • Receive your degree from the University of Essex, a top 30 UK university (Complete University Guide 2022)
  • We achieved the highest student satisfaction rating worldwide for online classroom experience in the Global Student Satisfaction Awards (GSSA 2021)

Your future

The specialist legal knowledge you will gain is of particular use to those working within roles connected to global commerce, such as a lawyer within an international law firm, a multinational company doing business across borders, a governmental organisation regulating trade, or a research position looking into the future of business. The skills you gain will further enhance your CV to unlock senior role possibilities.

Qualified solicitors or barristers will also be able to use the skills and knowledge gained from studying the course to meet their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
