Im also thinking of th nus/shanghai LLM in int. business law. Is it very competetive to get into the program? How is the workload? And what about student life/social life? What countries are most of the students from?

The workload is not different from the regular NUS LLM programmes - 10 courses (40 credits in total) across two semesters. Details can be found on http://law.nus.edu.sg/prospective/postgrad/coursework/llm_ibl.htm. Applications for admission in July 2008 will open in mid-November.

Susanne,

I am a current student of the programme. There might be one question left Prof. Alan Tan did not and surely cannot answer. The student life is very fine. Like the most top-ranked universities NUS likes to make you read a lot, but lately it is up to you how deep you get into the materia. Guess, you can manage it with a normal effort, but NUS provides you enough stuff to study a lot. Anyway, a real advantage of the programme is that they take care that you can focus on your studies. For each course they hand you all essays, book chapters and scripts you will need to study, so that you do not have to spend day long in the library to run for your copies... . However, it is my believe that the work-life balance is quiet good. According to your purpose you have enought time to enjoy what Singapore and Shanghai can offer you outside the university. Especially the the teaching system allows you to travel in China. All courses are intensive ones which means that all courses are stringed together. You will have three holidy-brakes during the programme and you can skip two of the offered courses.

Last, but far from least, nightlife in Singapore and especially Shanghai is spledid.

If there are any questions left, keep on posting.
