Waarom in Groningen?

This programme has a strong focus on the application of criminal law in a globalised and internationalised context. It thus draws from comparative criminal law and international criminal law as well as from rules regulating international cooperation in criminal matters to explore particular types of global criminality: organised and financial crimes, cybercrimes and international crimes.

  • Testimonial van Lejla Terzimehic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Sharing knowledge with my colleagues, all coming from different legal traditions, and learning from inspiring professors who all are authorities in their respective fields, enriched me with the skills I did not gain during my previous education.

    Thanks to the European Commission Scholarship and the Talent Grant from the University of Groningen, I got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – to expand my knowledge in the field of law I am most passionate about, at one of the oldest and most prestigious European universities. Being very intellectually challenging, this master programme has truly met my expectations. Sharing knowledge with my colleagues, all coming from different legal traditions, and learning from inspiring professors who all are authorities in their respective fields, enriched me with the skills I did not gain during my previous education. What I find to be the most beneficial is that the Dutch educational system, appreciating independence, taught us to develop a critical opinion on law-related issues. Moreover, this master programme had a unique approach in tackling controversial contemporary legal issues. Due to its strong comparative emphasis, it encouraged us to keep at constant track with our national law, which is of a huge significance. Both this master and a 6-month long internship at the International Criminal Tribunal for The Former Yugoslavia strengthen my belief in Justice. Furthermore, besides this academic benefit, I believe that studying abroad unequivocally broadens our horizons and tests prejudices we even are not aware of. Indeed it is only knowledge that can triumph over impunity, injustice and ignorance.
