Hi Guys,

I'm Irish and I'm still waiting to hear if I got an interview! My main concern is my level of french(I've done college through french before, but my exams were oral), I know the Degree is 60% through french, but does anyone know what quantity of written work has to be handed up?

Thanks



Hello AineG!

what have you applied to? brugge?

I have the same fear )) if I can call it so, I've studied French in school and it wasnt really serious, so now I am working hard on it...

so, as I now, in any cases you should have a degree with the level B2..and it's pretty much I must say..

ps:I am waiting too for the interview, and I hope they wont ask too much in French ))

good luck!

I applied for POL as well!

In my last year of law so no politics degree on my part either it was one of the things that worried me when I applied but its nice to see that other people are in the same situation. As far as I can tell they do accept law graduates into the POL programme.



hello ilse!
I am from POL too, and I think it should be ok with law degree only, because, I didnt actually had any political subjects at the university.. I guess it should be right so..
and how about the French? many people are concerning about their level of Fench )) me either..))

POL applicant here *wave*

I haven't studies politics before either - I shouldn't think it will be a problem if you can really demonstrate your interest in it?


hello blingblong !

you see, I havent studied politics before too, and I hope too it wont be a problem..I just know some poeple studing there just the current year at POL, Brugge, and they have the same law degree as I do, so, I guess, we shoudnt worry ))

but, I have to say that it was complitly strange to write my motivation letter when applying to POL )) so hard to motivate your interest in a field you didnt study before..

gooood luck!

it's great to know MartiDD, that I am not single in this..because most of people apply to LLM..

so how is your feeling about it? did you study in Politics? because I didnt, and I am afraid I may be not the good as other students who did ))

thank you!

Hey! well I am majoring in Political Science, minoring in Diplomacy and International Affairs. My first concern is about that indeed, I do not have a huge background on EU politics! fingers crossed for both of us then!!! :)

@ blingblong

Hey,

I'm Irish and I still haven't found out if I have an interview. I know that the interviews will be held on the 27th, and after Achris's post I am just wondering if they have been giving only a weeks notice to everyone? I have another opportunity at the time and I don't want to be out of Ireland and be forced to forfeit my interview space!

Hi !

I am so glad I found this topic on the internet :) The oral convocation is eagerly awaited and it is wayyy too stressful not to share it with you ! I applied for the EU Law program through the French selection commity and haven't had any news yet..

I am quite distressed about the oral examination. From what I've read from last year's topic, the French commity seems quite harsh. I am also very confused about what kind of question the commity may ask, it seems to be very precise questions so that I really don't know how to prepare myself. If anyone has further informations about it, please help yourself and share it with me :)

Wow I cant believe theyre holding interviews already....

The Spanish application deadline has been set back several times and now it seems theyve agreed on the 15th of March, so I havent even sent my application to the actual selection comittee yet!! (even though I sent everything else to Bruges ages ago).

In past years interviews in Madrid were held between the end of April and the beginning of May and I really hope they dont start any earlier this year a) because I need time to prepare b) Ill be out the country nearly all of April. The one weeks' notice thing worries me a little (apart from the possibility that I might not get an interview)...

Best of luck achris and make sure to post about how it went! :)

Hello everybody!
I had the interview this afternoon and I have to share the experience with you. I was interviewed by 2 College people, who were really polite and made me feel comfortable, even though it was a phone interview and therefore quite impersonal. As regards with the questions, there were some questions about my motivation, but not that many. Of course they asked the standard question, why an LLM in EU law and why CoE. I had some questions regarding my dissertation, and a past moot court experience that i had. Now, coming to EU law questions, they asked me about the new fiscal treaty, and to comment on the relation of EU law with Public International Law, but I think that this is because I have a stronger background in PIL. Other questions were quite simple.
All in all, try not to worry a lot. The interview only lasts 20 minutes, Best of luck to all of you

Thanks for the update, Im sure everyone will find something useful in it. You must be so relieved its over!

Looks like it went quite smoothly.. from what youve told us the level of difficulty seems to have been pretty acceptable, the topics they asked about were coherent ,etc.

here's hoping the rest of us are lucky enough to get an interview!

Hello to all of you!
Is there anybody from Poland?
I apply for IRDS and, as a second choice, European Law. I have just been invited to the interview that will take place at the end of March. I will be grateful for any tips from those of you, who have already had this experience.
