Welcome to the School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences

The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences provides students with international knowledge and cutting-edge practical experience. Our goal is to equip our students with the theoretical and methodological tools necessary to understand individual and social group behaviours, as well as societal and state dynamics.

We aim to ensure that everyone is supported to make the most of their studies through an active and engaging university experience.
