It seems to vary based on course, country of origin, and scholarships. I'm applying from the UK, for a scholarship from the goverment, and I've been told that the interviews for that will be in March. I'm not sure whether that's all of the UK applicants or if that's just for this specific scholarship though.


Ahh I've got a competitor for the Bruges-Naotlin Scholarship then ;) Haha but hope we both get it!

Did you have to provide them with any proof of your financial situation or anything? I found it confusing how the CoE website says its for the neediest people while the foundation website says its for the most deserving from the interview?

Or did I just read it wrong?

Could the german speaking people please send me a PN with their mail or facebookaddys? I would very much appreciate that since I also plan to apply after finishing my Magister.

Ahh ok, that's alright. But good luck to you too!

I'm going for IRD as my 1st choice, POL as my 2nd. I just realised I wrote a better application for my 2nd choice than my 1st. Ehhh...good job me.

How bout you Clare?

yes, I am! I just know so far, that the interviews will be at the 18.19./03. in Berlin and you have to attend. I also received my confirmation of my application on Friday, but nothing more so far... I think we have to wait...

Did you provide them with a TOEFL test result or something like that?

Hi!
Nice to get to know someone from Germany! :)
I took the IELTS for my English and did the daad sprachzertifikat for French. I don't know if it is crucial to provide them with certificates but I heard that it makes your application stronger. Have you taken it?
Good luck for you and hope to see you in Berlin!

I applied for the history scholarship (Geremek) but I have no idea how many students will apply. I didn't provide any proof of my language skills, I hope that's not a problem.

Concerning the interview dates, I have no idea when they will be held (I think I need to go to Bruges because there's no national committee here).

Good luck to everyone!

Shit! Did you reach him now? And I would call the europäische bewegung guys! I hope they don't reject the application because of formal reasons! For which degrees did you apply again? I only applied for European law.. What are you studying currently and where? I'm a law student in Freiburg and in March I will take the state exam (ahhh). Hopefully everything will be fine @.@

Hey everyone!

Hope you're not too stressed with the applications and that you'll all get what you're applying for.
I posted in another thread, but I'll try my chances here too:

Has anyone ever been accepted into the LLM track at CoE without a purely legal background (BA or MA)? I'm finishing my MA in International Affairs in Sciences Po Paris and would like to apply to the LLM at CoE but the website says it's a no-no... Thanks!

Hi,

I do speak both French and English. French is my mother tongue and I've been speaking english for almost 5 years now (college in the UK, then taught law in English). I've heard that language skills is not that much of a deal though and that some people got in with a basic french. Whats your academic background?

Good luck !!

Hey everyone!!

I'm a Spanish student and I applied to the Law program. This is the first year that we had to send the applicaion only to the CoE and not to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs because they won't give us any scholarships (the crisis is the major excuse i guess). So does someone know when will the preselections be posted? And when will the interviews take place?
And then, I studied general law in Spain (we can't specialize on a concrete field) so I don't know how to get ready for the interview; are there any books/ articles etc. that can be useful?
Thanks everybody!!

Hello everyone!

I am also a Spanish applicant for the LLM :) I am competent in French and bilingual in English, but perfect knowledge of both languages is not essential when applying to the CoE.

Spain is one of the countries where competition to get into CoE is most fierce, so it's going to be very difficult to get an interview...

Elisabetruiz, are you certain there won't be any scholarships from the MAEC? Have you applied to any other scolarships?

Best of luck to everyone!

Hi! No, I'm not certain but they told me that scholarships hadn't been confirmed yet, and last year Spanish students were asked to wait until the scholarships were published in order to send the application (they had to wait until the end of February) whereas this year we were just asked to send all the documents to Brugge... So it's just a guess, and I hope I'm wrong, but I don't know...
I asked for scholarships in La Caixa and the Fundación Ramón Areces, and you?
I hope we will get the chance to be interviewed at least!!
