The International Law Department at the Faculty of Law has recently been named as the top-spot in the Netherlands to study international law. The ranking is according to the new Keuzegids Higher Education Guide 2016 – Master’s programmes. The guide includes descriptions of all higher education master’s programmes officially registered in the Netherlands, and a quality assessment is given for most of these programmes reflecting student evaluations.
The ranking in international law refers jointly to the Faculty of Law’s English language LLM degree programmes in International and Human Rights Law, and Public International Law*. When asked about this award, Prof. Dr. Marcel Brus, the Academic Director of both programmes, replied “I'm happy to see that the quality and dedication of our teaching staff is recognized. The fact that the group of students in these programmes is relatively small, makes it possible to give them a lot of personal attention. Also, we value the fact that these programmes are regarded as integrated rather than a combination of individual courses. It seems that this is noticed by the students”.
These programmes, as well as the rest of the English taught LLM programmes at the Faculty, are currently accepting applications for studies beginning in September 2016.
*Both programmes are
accredited in the Netherlands under the LLM CROHO label International Law and the Law of International Organizations (60605)
